Christmas went about as planned this year (which is a good thing), and now that it's over, I am breathing a little sigh of relief! No more shopping, wrapping or searching for gift ideas.
Well, at least until the next holiday arrives.
I hope that everyone out there got something fun that they wanted, and I will be making the rounds as time permits today to see what's new with everyone.
I feel pretty lucky. Among my gifts from family and friends, I received:
2 stock pots (I'm keeping both and throwing out my two old blah pots), 1 is a 10 quart and the other is a 12 quart. The 10 quart also has a pasta insert and a glass lid while the other has a stainless lid and is a little wider.
1 Henckels paring knife
1 "condiment container" which is the stainless steel and glass little container that Alton Brown uses on his cooking show
1 set of cheese knives (the kind that are all different shapes for cutting different types of cheeses)
A poster of Cheeses of the World (that coworker knows me well, I'd say)
The complete collection of Calvin and Hobbes comics in a nice 3 book set.
I hope that you've all been having good holidays. Until the new year officially starts, I will probably only be on my blog sporatically, but I should be back full time after that.
See you in 2006!
