I didn't mention anything about Christmas gifts I received!
It was definitely a food themed Christmas this year! My hubby bought me the complete year of Fine Cooking magazines in the hardbound book. I got three years worth: 2006, 2007 and 2008. So exciting to look through magazines for the full year all at once. Hopefully it will get me inspired to cook even more :)
I also got some fancy finishing salts. President's Choice has three variety in nice little tins. Himalayan, fleur de sel, and Cyprus Mediterranean mix. I haven't tried them yet but soon enough.
And who doesn't love silicone spatulas? I personally love this version, the spoonula type. I find the shape of the head so much more sturdier and easier to use for batters or scraping than the typical flat version.
I don't think I would ever get bored of kitchen gifts :)
