I got a Cuisinart Chefs Classic SS 10-pc set, some misc kitchen utensils, 3 Food network mixing bowls, random pyrex stuff, a car cover and some other small stuff. I am trying to build a useable kitchen so it helped a lot

I got one of those "as seen on TV" Magic Bullet blenders. I think I'd rather have gotten an immersion blender, but far be it from me to look a gift appliance in the mouth.

I got an air compressor, fondue pot, a collapsible snow shovel for my truck, cedar candle, sweatshirt, cereal bowls (my old one's had chips in them), and hand lotion. I got two fondue pots, so I am going to return one and get a mandolin. I also asked for a stockpot and got a set of 4 of them. I am going to return the set and try to find a single large stockpot.

But the main thing is I got to spend a nice day with my family.

I heard those things are actually pretty good.

I received a new cookbook, "Chez Jacques," which is a sort of combined autobiography/cookbook by Jacques Pepin. Lots of interesting discussion in it regarding "taste memory," versus simply following a recipe verbatum. Also received a new automatic watch, that winds itself... see attached.
