I'm not bragging, but I just wanted to tell you how sweet my hubby is. He actually listened to me all year long as we watched and I commented on cooking shows, or I borrowed certain tools
from his garage to use in the kitchen. He really surprised me this year for Christmas and got me several things.
I mentioned how nice a tapered rolling pin would be--no handles to grab and worry about bending. It helped that Chris Kimball talked about how superior it was and why. I love America's Test Kitchen, when someone can tell me how and why to do something I am more excited to do or use it. When I opened a huge box on Christmas morning I was thoroughly surprised with this...
Yippy! Watch out for some perfectly rolled pie crust and cookies.
Then in a wrapped shoe box I was surprised with this...
Apparently it is not kosher to take a mallet from the garage and use it to pound your chicken for Chicken Cordon Bleu. Maybe it was a hint that he really liked my Cordon Bleu.
But the biggest surprise was what he made me for Christmas...
A music stand with silhouettes of my two kiddies.
It is beautiful--thanks for the beautiful and fun surprises.
I love you!
