dd younger - I bought her a le crueset large skillet pan - It was $60 off and I thought it would be nice for her when she got older. I never see the le creuset on sale. I have started buying the girls things for their kitchens and pay for them over the year for Christmas presents. one a year. Dd older doesn't cook but wants simple things. Last year I bought the girls the same omelet pan I have that they both love. I know it sounds frivolous but it really is an amazing pan for eggs, crepes, pancakes and everything just slides right out - (not used for frying at all).
I think this year I might start buying quality knives for them. one at a time.
I really want to take the bread making boot camp downtown but to buy this would hurt my budget. I have wanted to take this for at least 4 years. I would love dd younger to come with me as she is more like a chef and I am a home cook. But it is so expensive. It would take 4 months to pay off. (maybe I will look at what they are making and try to work on that here)
it is always a joy to be here with you!
