I got a bag of Habanero Death Dust. I'll try the rub on some chicken wings next weekend.

My nephew got some "after death" sauce!
We got an Oster rice cooker/steamer and an apple corer/sectioner from our daughter Nancy.

Though I got it a few weeks ago, the weber rotisserie for my 22.5 was an xmas gift.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

No cooking stuff--the DH told me he wants to go his separate way. I guess he didn't want to wait until January.

Total mayhem here yesterday after dinner. There were about a dozen of us, including grandchildren and there was paper, ribbons and packaging galore. At one point the living room floor was so covered I feared we'd lose the youngest grandchild.

Yes, I did receive some great cooking-related "toys." One of Glenn's children gave me four 17x25-inch Teflon sheets. Now I can cut them to size and have almost all my cookie sheets, baking pans and cake pans Teflon-lined. Some of them were Teflon, but that was over 40 years ago and many bakings later. Now they'll have a new life and perhaps another 40 years.

I also received a Zenker cake slicing device that I'd been coveting. And Glenn's mother gifted me with a beater blade that has "scraper blades" for my KitchenAid mixer. Can't wait to try that.

Best of all, my sweetheart gave me a beautiful 9-speed KitchenAid hand mixer. I've been using a 5-speed one since about 1979 and it just didn't have the get-up-and-go that I sometimes needed. Plus, it was getting a little long in the tooth and balked at some of the more difficult tasks I asked it to do.

My brother is an actor with and on the board of directors of an area theatre and he gave me a cookbook which is a compilation of the best-of-the-best recipes from past and current actors and staff. Some of the recipes darn near made me drool as I read through it.

One of the neatest things, especially because it's just the two of us, is a "split" pie pan one of my children gave me. It's something that I'm sure we're going to enjoy. It will make it sooooo great to make meat pies for dinner.

I can't wait to play with my new toys!!

This is what I got for Christmas! Not only can we have a fire on the deck now, but you can cook on it too! Very nice!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Oh, I forgot!
A friend sent us a Keurig Office Pro coffee maker. I'm not a huge fan of these things as they are so wasteful, but I did find a reusable filter and so it won't be as wasteful to use it that way.
Also, kitchen towels, washcloths, and pot holders from my mom.

No cooking stuff this year. My sons got me a Nook Tablet and I'm thrilled!! I'm somewhat techno challenged so we'll see how it goes. I don't plan on using it to read books, but I love all the other features it has!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
