wowwee!! It has been ages since I was able to post something. have been super busy at work, not to mention on the home front. we are still making progress here on the kitch and the end is finally in sight. Just have to finish up a couple more major projects and we'll be ready to move back in. wanted to post a pic of my majorly tricked out spice rack. mames organized it to the deeps. Labels, arranged by how often i use them, etc. it's basically my favorite part of the kitchen. except for my new stove of course! oh jackpot! I have been loving the gas range/convection oven. I've never had a gas stove at home before and am hearting it. bigtime.
food pics are a sausage gumbo that I made a while ago (back when I was still using that single burner. I think that gumbo took about 2 hours to make:) some mixed grill action when we weren't getting an inch of rain every day, and a breakfast of spicy tomato sauce and fried potatoes with an egg. I would elaborate more but the big news here is that this is my first giveaway! I have been slowly replacing a lot of my cookware and so I have some odds, ends, duplicates, etc. that I will be giving away to my reader friendlies. up for grabs here is a cuisinart stainless steel 12" everyday pan with lid (click for more info). You can do a lot of things with this pan. I used it for roasting, braising, reducing and sauteing quite a few things. would also probably work for paella and would be a decent stir fry pan. It's slightly used and has a lot of life left. only reason I am giving away is because I just have more than I can use/I feel guilty for leaving everyone in the dark these last few months/I'm full of awesomes/I want it to go to a good home. so, yeah. If you want to be entered into the giveaway, just leave a comment saying something like: "booyah! a free pan!?! just for reading this garbage!" I can't believe it!, sign me up! or enter my name into the giveaway, or something along those lines. but you have to say you want in, not going to enter commenters who don't follow the rule...s. I'm a stickler. if it goes well, I have plenty more to giveaway. I will write names of all the participants on little tiny pieces of paper and then toss them into a headwind and see which one flutters to the ground in the most carefree manner...or i'll just have mames pull one out of a hat. anyway...that's that. so comment up, and you could have a slightly used, new workhorse in your kitch. (I'll get the winner's info after the drawing ends.) Results will be posted in prob a week or two...Best of luck!
