Lots of Gifts

Yesterday was my Birthday and I had an awesome day. My family is the best. Not only did I have a great time with everyone I love, I had a great day with points!

As you know I couldn't figure out what to serve everyone for dinner. I decided on soup and grilled cheese. Nice comfort food. Everyone laughed at first but then they all truly enjoyed it.

I got a lot of great gifts to use in the kitchen. An immersion blender, now I won't have to transfer my soup to the food possessor to blend it, I can just do it right in the pot! I already used it to make a marinara sauce. 200 sheets of pre cut parchment paper, they fit perfectly in my cookie sheets. Used this too to cook my mozzarella sticks on. A new blade for my mixer, it scrapes the sides of the bowl as it is mixing. Used it this morning to start making my Valentine's Day cakes. 100 cookie cutters, lots of fun for me and the kids. Cut the kids french toast yesterday morning into shapes. My son had fun flying his airplane french toast around. Little cake pans that leave an indent in the cake so I can fill them with something. I can't wait to use these!

Thanks again to everyone for the awesome Birthday. Here's to another great year!
