Thread: Unexpected kitchen gift!

    Default Unexpected kitchen gift!

    Bought a biscuit/cookie cutter in the shape of NM to make Christmas
    ornaments for some 'ex-pats' who actually miss the place. On a whim,
    asked a relative in NJ to send me one for that state, to make that
    family an ornament.

    What came by UPS today was an order from a bakin/candy-supply place*
    with cutters representing 49 states (no Hawaii) and the District of
    Columbia!

    Now I need to sit down with the atlas to sort out the states whose
    shapes aren't familiar to me LOL.

    Anyone else get an unexpected kitchen gift lately?

    Now that is a nice gift.

    I received one yesterday.
    It's a set called "Tea For Two". Includes: tea, bamboo tea
    canister, two mugs, wooden tea tray, two coasters and tea infuser.

    My husband did come home a week or two ago with a new ceramic chefs' knife,
    which thrilled me. My eldest dropped a can on my other ceramic chefs knife a
    month or so ago. It chipped the tip off.

    I got a stovetop griddle that fits over two burners. It's very old
    and has a beautiful seasoning. It's kinda fun to be able to move
    stuff around to different areas of heat. Louise paid a buck for it at
    a resale store. I love it.

    i think baking a cookie in the shape of maryland would be tricky.

    I had one that was made for camping and wasn't long enough to use
    properly over two burners. This one is 22" X 11" plus the lip. I
    sold the other one in a garage sale for buck, so I guess this one was
    free.

    Very nice gifts.

    I may have missed your reply on peeling the green bit from watermelon
    rind. Could you tell me again what you use? We just bought another
    watermelon and I'd like to try pickling the rind. Ta.

    You did miss it. Or it was posted somewhere else. Star brand peeler
    made in Switzerland. U-shape. Google turned it up.

    Well, it wasn't a kitchen gift, it was just a gift that will keep on
    giving: the contract lawyer in our office who is a complete, total,
    unredeemable idiot got fired. We will be moron-free on the 31st - and
    another good part? I go on a 2 week vacay on the 18th, so I
    essentially only have to deal with the maroon for another 6 business
    days. Whoo hoo!

    OB: Made a batch of apple fritters for the first time this past week.
    Note to self: fritters are nasty. Do not make again. Ever.

    They each have their uses...I use the ceramic knife for things like slicing
    tomatoes, slicing thin slices of fruits and vegatables, slicing meats for
    stir-fry (which I can get way thinner with the ceramic), etc. I still use
    steel for dicing, chopping, etc.

    I love the ceramic, but I would definitely want both.
