What Cooking Stuff Do You Have?

Do you guys find that you ask people for cooking things around christmas time? I for one don't have alot from Pampered Chef. I really don't like the products. However, as far as everything else goes, lol, I have TONS!! I am loaded with pans and pots, and I have a gadget for everything. I STILL don't have enough.

Over the weekend we went to Sears to get our taxes done. I HAD to stop by the cooking ware section, and yes, I bought another pan. My wife can't seem to understand it, so i kinda tell her it's like her and shoes. Then she understands lol.

I have been getting into cuting boards. I have a nice big thick wooden one, but I have about 4 plastic ones.

I have a bowl fetish - I LOVE bowls! Nesting bowls (especially if they are different colors), large bowls from Italy, just bowls...........I have no room left - I had to finally give a bowl away!

Oh, man, why'd you ask this question? You're a big meanie.

No, never mind. I love so many cooking toys, I can't settle on just ONE thing. I love gadgets and nifty appliances and I'm blessed because we have a couple of really great thrift stores that ALWAYS have a treat for me when I visit. Gotten some really awesome things over the years.

pots and pans for every occasion...copper, enameled cast iron, raw cast iron, carbon steel, (a set of real "old" American made Calphalon in the basement which I'll use again when I can't lift the poans I have now!) even a soapstone pot from Brazil (a great bean pot!)

yes I understand..hey it's legal, right?

SS copper bottom, iron skillets, Chicago Cutlery make up most of what I have. Would love to get a good food processor soon.

Omigosh! How could I forget!!!!! I'm a dishware junkie. I don't know how many different sets of dishes we have. First, we have three different patterns/makers of antique/vintage china. Then, there's the assortment of contemporary tableware I have that I use to "set the scene," if you get what I mean.

After all that, there are all the clear glass pieces I have in at least 4 person settings. Dinner plates, luncheon plates, soup/dessert, etc. bowls, shrimp cocktail pieces, you name it.

Hmmm. There's a lot more, but if I post any more, Buck will find out and I'll be "cut off."

I have a thing for trays and platters. I love them. I use them, too. Anytime anyone eats someplace other than the dining table, I have the perfect tray for whatever they are having. And Fisher (who's 5) always uses a tray with high sides so that if he spills or dribbles or drops, it's easy to clean up. Trays are my passion.

But I have a very healthy attachment to shoes, too, PastaKing!
