Nice.

But, I did a double take. That looks like the cloaks that nursing students used to wear in Denmark. How appropriate for a nurse.

I know, it's made in France and it was on a super sale 50% off. I just love the look of it and it will be a good palette for my collection of winter scarves. I should have it in about a week.

Kind of bah hum bug around here. DH and I did not exchange gifts this year. (we did last year, I got a Cuisinart food processor, which I requested lol!) It's his theory that if we want something we can just go buy it and need not wait for a holiday to do so. Then everybody gets what they really want. We did decide to buy new cordless phones for the house after Christmas, as current ones are beginning to "crap out" We will be exchanging gifts with DD, son-in-law and granddaughters tomorrow, so it won't feel so hum-buggy! :)

Oh, yeah I know exactly what it is! Our nephew got one from the fire hall and loves it. He is team leader for Search and Rescue (a butcher by trade) and a darn fine cook. Our niece is a paramedic so he often goes and cooks at the station and they all love him for it. It's a small town so S&R, Fire and Ambulance headquarters are all in one building!

I got two new pans. They are the oval ones like you see RR use.

Rachael Ray Orange 5-quart Oval Saute Pan | Overstock.com

Rachael Ray Black 8-quart Covered Pasta Etc. Pot | Overstock.com

The long handled on will replace the non-stick Calphalon pan that I have that is no long non-stick.

A relatively light cooking related year this year. I received "The Kimchi Chronicles" cookbook, a small silicone spatula, and a small clear glass teapot to display (and serve) flowering teas.
Oh yeah, also a $10 gift card to our local cooking store. I won that in a spice naming contest on Facebook. I correctly identified "Grains of Paradise" as the mystery spice in the photo.

What will you use the larger one for? I'm asking because I have a enamelled cast iron pot about that size and shape and haven't really figured out uses for it.

It was quite a christmas for cooking gear for me.

I got a couple 9x3" cheesecake pans

a presto foldaway griddle

a Tassimo coffee maker (really kinda cool!) a surprise from my mom, she was so excited to give it to us!


Cookbooks, "Artisan bread in 5 minutes a day" "Good Eats 3 The Later years" and some assorted cooking gadgets from my mom.

My mom found some crochet dish cloths that she had packed away, they were the last ones that my grandmother made in the nursing home before she died 12 years ago, I will treasure these forever!
