merry christmas to us!

You know you're getting old when you're really excited about getting kitchen things for Christmas. Christmas came early this year for me and Aaron, as we've gotten the three picture items already (didn't want to have to carry home with us on the plane from Utah, so our moms just had them shipped straight here). Thanks Mom and Wendy! We love, love, love them. Aaron is now a pro at making fresh pasta, and I love using the skillet (though I still haven't made a skillet cookie yet). I have yet to use my pretty quiche tart dish, but I just saw this Saveur recipe and am sorely tempted: chocolate caramel tart.

I should probably wait until we get our Thermapen thermometer on December 25th, though. (!!!!! so excited)

Anyone else getting kitchen-related Christmas presents?

Fun! Kitchen stuff is pretty much all I ever ask for on any occasion. It's the best :)

Ooh, I saw that recipe today and swooned. I've been on a caramel kick lately. You'll have to try it and tell me how it is!

ps: I got kitchen stuff for my birthday. Best birthday ever.

Nice! The last two years I think have been full of kitchen things! Last year I got my little Dutch oven, prep bowls and a silpat...anthropologie bowls for my birthday. They have some cuuutr ramekins I am eyeing for Christmas. Oooh last year I got my immersion blender which I love so much. Pasta maker! So cool! And skillet cookie! Chocolate caramel tart! So many exclamation points, I apologize.
