or at least my cooking! On Monday night, my DH came home with a gift. It was this gorgeous (yes, I say gorgeous) large stock pot! To say I was thrilled would be down playing my excitement. You may be thinking this isn't a great gift, and she has gone off her rocker, but to me it was superb and perfectly timed. See, many months ago my largest pot, which was a Revere Ware pot that we received when we got married 20+ year ago, finally bit the dust. So, I had resorted to using this really cheap pot I had actually picked up to use as the base of a "kitchen gift basket" one day when the need arose (I paid $2.50 for this high quality -not- pot).
Well, last Sunday, when I was making the below mentioned soup, the cheapo-pot decided it would freak out and begin to change shape right there on my stove! It was kinda scary. I repotted the soup into 2 smaller pots and finished, but the cheapo pot was a done for. Imagine my surprise when DH shows up the next night with a wonderful new pot...better than either of the previously mentioned pots! It was so neat to know that he went to the kitchen store and picked it out just because he knew having it would make my life easier (well, that and he likes to eat!). I love that man!
