Hope you're oiling up the shotgun. Rachel is going to bring all the boys running! She's a stunner.

Get those knives sharp and come back with some kitchen tales. ((((GB))))

Thanks everyone. Today in the mail I got a gift from my brother and sister in law. The found this really cool salt store and got me a number of salty gifts. The main part is a large Himalayan salt slab. It is heated in the oven and then once hot you cook your veggies, meat, fish, etc. directly on the slab and no need to season the food because the slab does it for you. I made bok choy with garlic on it for dinner and it was great. It will take some getting used to because it is a small cooking surface so you need to go in small batches. The other thing is there is little to no sound which will take some trial and error to figure out how things are coming along. It is very cool though and looks awesome.

They also got me a salt sample with a variety of types. The hickory smoked is my favorite, but I was always a sucker for hickory smoke.

The coolest part though were the two tequilla shot glasses made entirely of Himalayan pink salt. The can be frozen for tequilla or heated for a hot shot or used room temp. Once the kids go to sleep I will have to "inspect them for damage".

There's a restaurant in our area that serves Kobe beef carpaccio on a hot salt slab. Yummy. Enjoy!

The kids look great! How fast was the shutter speed on the camera to get a pic of your boy?
