Terribly busy day again. I'm off to an evening concert (a.k.a. violin and clarinet practice) and then the spa (bath night for the boys; sometimes it helps to aggrandize things a bit).
One dose of excitement: the goodies from the Pampered Chef "show" that I went to a few weeks ago materialized today. I nearly broke the apple peeler/corer/slicer that I bought by trying to put it together the wrong way. Really the instructions were very vague. (Note to P.C. instruction writers: a picture really is most helpful.) It avenged itself by cutting my knuckle. But, with my new skimmer and my apple p/c/s, I am ready to make soup and pie. Not for the same meal, though. Ew. I also got a nylon knife so we can stop scratching up my glass quiche pans and a little bitty metal spatula specially for peeling difficult cookies off the cookie sheet. My usual nylon spatulas tend to bulldoze the poor things.
I have also entered myself in at least 10 blog giveaways. Haven't won anything yet, but I remain hopeful. See? I really am easy to entertain.
