While shopping at Costco today, I ended up buying myself a new toy. In my defense, Angela actually suggested buying it because we weren’t certain how much longer Costco would be selling them (we had only gone there to get hand soap and cat food I swear!). I’ve always (where always=since I really started cooking a few years ago) wanted one and almost bought an off brand one at Marshall’s last weekend. So now I just have to come up with a nice braised dish to make in the near future.
On a side note, if you’re interested in picking up Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, et al (and you really should if you don’t own it), Volumes 1 and 2 are only $25 at Costco (well, the one near us) which is quite the steal as each volume usually retails for that price.
