Our 10 year old non-stick nice-at-the-time cookware should have been replaced long ago. We (ok, I) decided to go stainless steel in replacing it. It's pretty. I can use any darn utensil I pick up. AND! It's not coated in that non-stick stuff
In other gleeful kitchen happiness, my sister ordered me a new crockpot for Christmas. It came in the same day as the cookware. I was ALL SET with recipes and ingredients for a cooking frenzy this weekend. Unfortunately, Tot and I were felled with colds this weekend, and the closest I got to actual cooking was putting two different frozen meals into the oven. MH and I did manage to wash, dry, and put away all the new items and rid the cabinets of the old stuff. Most of the old stuff went into the trash, but a few pieces that were still in good shape found a new home with Teen. He was happy with his "new" stuff too!
BBQ Chicken Dinner in the Crockpot - Really, the whole dinner!
Cheeseburger Casserole - This sounds weird, but it gets rave reviews. (I made it, post tomorrow).
Cheesesteak style Sloppy Joes - I really think MH will LOVE this one.
Chocolate Meringue Cookies - the mixer is begging to whip some egg whites
Coconut Macaroons - I am just obsessed with these since our NYC trip
I also plan to try out some tried and true favorites like tacos and some soups to warm us up in this cold weather! I will update when I've tried the new ones!
*I know relatively nothing about cookware. I am not being compensated in any way for mentioning Tramontina cookware that I've never even used. I bought it because it's shiny.
