Mix and Chop Meat Gadget

The Pampered Chef Mix and Chop

I have new gadget for the kitchen that I have to tell you guys about! I discovered it a couple of months back in Susan’s Pampered Chef catalog. It is a new item from Pampered Chef called Mix and Chop.

The Mix and Chop looked like it would work great for all my ground meat cooking! Since my birthday was just around the corner when I first found out about it, I “casually” showed it to Larry in the catalog and said, “Doesn’t this look neat?!" Any man who has been married to a woman for almost twenty-five years knows that “Doesn’t this look neat?!” is really code for - “I want one of these!” I fully expected him to add a Mix and Chop to my b-d list! Well, my birthday came and went. I received lots of nice treats and gifts, but no Mix and Chop. I believed that either my “coy communication skills” or his “read-between-the-line skills” must be slipping. I didn’t mention the absence of the Mix and Chop from his presents to me, but I vowed to myself to be a bit more direct at Christmas and resigned myself to waiting until the end of the year for the Mix and Chop.

Then a couple of weeks ago, Larry and the kids were out mowing the yard, when my dear friend, Donna S., pulled into the drive. M.C. invited her into the house and yelled to me that Donna was here. When I got to the door, there stood Donna, with gift bag in hand. Donna and her girls have been so kind and truly encouraging of this little blogging endeavor. Donna is absolutely one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. She gives of herself to our church, the school, and the community. She’s just a very special lady!

As she presented me with this pretty bag, with the sweetest note attached, she said she just had a little happy for me. What could it be?! To my great joy, the bag contained a Pamper Chef Mix and Chop!!! Bless her heart, she had gone to the trouble of asking Susan and Larry for a gift recommendation! I told you how thoughtful she is!

I am loving my new Mix and Chop!! I have used it several times already, and with great results! I just love the even texture it gives to my browned ground meats - no more chunks! I hope you can tell from the photo how well this tool works in helping the meat to evenly brown! It has already become indispensable in my kitchen!!

Many, many thanks to Donna for this new gadget. As great as it is, the best thing is that I will think of her, and how blessed I am to have such a sweet friend, each time I use it!! Thank you, Donna! Love you!!

By the way, I should know better by now, than to doubt my sweet husband!! He’s the best!!
