I was getting bored in the kitchen - I was overwhelmed in general and just wanted to stay away from the kitchen entirely - that is *so* not like me. I like to cook for my family, I enjoy new recipes, I love cooking!
I feel like I am SLOWLY coming out of my overwhelmed-ness ~ and I recently got some new gadgets to get the motivation going again in the kitchen:
The cookie scooper - just a mini ice-cream scooper, that I use to scoop up cookie dough. Nice size cookies, all the same size, good for determining accurate baking time. And just oh-so-fun to use!!
My new little heart-shaped...uh...thingy. I first used it to make heart-shaped pancakes. My son took one look at his plate, *sighed*, then said "Momma, you *love* me, don't you". Yes, son, I love you THIIIIIIIIIIIIIS much!!
I just used them today to make heart-shaped eggs too. Cute.
Lastly, we just made up a big ol' batch of homemade french fries last night ~ in our new Cool Daddy deep fryer (Father's Day gift). Can't wait to put that to other good uses!
Anyways, just sharing. Have a great day in YOUR kitchen!!
