No, this isn't a diatribe about the wasteful consumerism of our country this time of year. It's a list of the cool stuff I've bought on sale since last Thursday…
$20 at Sams Club (I know they're evil, sorry). I really wanted a big reference book like this where you could find a recipe for anything you wanted to make, like gingerbread or apple pie, etc. I haven't made anything from this yet, but it's fun to read so far. Yes, I like to read cookbooks just like novels. My mom calls it food porn. The second one is on sale too, but I'll give it a bit before I pick it up. The 1000+ recipes in this one should keep me busy for a while.
I haven't bought this yet, but it's on sale for $17 at Borders, and I've been wanting a copy. I don't have any big how-to reference books for cooking, and this is the one everyone is supposed to have.
I know I'm a super lame domestic girl now, but I've always loved to cook. I just have all the fun kitchen tools now. I adore my microplane grater! Everyone should buy one! Oh, and the programmable coffeemaker is the best appliance ever invented.
I also bought some awesome yarn that I'll post a picture of after I get off my butt and find my digital camera.
