Okay, I have a big dilemma and could really use your help.
For Christmas, my wonderful mother-in-law gave me a $50 gift card to Kitchen Window. It’s a sweet gift. I heart Kitchen Window and their new store is amazing. For those of you that don’t live in MN, think sur la table but cooler and not as pretentious – in my opinion anyways. They have everything under the sun in terms of cooking, plus a cooking school with tons of classes. I can spend an afternoon just browsing through the place and dreaming of what my kitchen could be….
So back to the gift card. It’s seriously burning a hole in my pocket and I can’t decide what to spend it on. Do I put it towards a larger purchase? Do I get a bunch of smaller things? Do I dare get a cookbook? Cooking class?Are there things I don’t even know I desperately need?
So many options!
Here are some of my current thoughts (I come up with a new one every day):
1. Add to my very small stainless steel All-Clad collection ( I currently have the 1.5qt. saucepan and a 10-inch saute pan w/ lid). Then I have to decide what piece to add…
2. A roasting pan. I’m talking the kind that holds a 20-lb turkey at Thanksgiving. One that can also be used on the stove-top to make groovy gravy’s.
4. Stock up on baking ingredients. They carry great chocolate and vanilla there and I’m confident I could spend $50 just on that.
5. A cookbook that I don’t know I must have yet.
So, dear readers, this is where I turn to you.
What would YOU spend a $50 gift card on? Please share! You might have ideas that haven’t occurred to me. What’s missing in your cooking life that you’d like to purchase? Or would you go to a cooking class instead?
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
