So as part of my post-convention activities I followed up with Michael Coleman from the voice acting seminar and R.Stevens of Diesel Sweeties (I still have to mail John, I forgot to do that.) And they both replied back! That was exciting!
Hoppie and I did some registry shopping at Kitchen Etc. last night. It sucks that they're going out of business, so we're trying to pick up the china they have left in our style. It proves that we should have gone two months ago when I had the 20% off total order in the store though, because Bankrupcy court is fixed at 10% off. Oh well, another cost for not doing what I knew I should I should have done when I did it. It won't be the first time this year.
I also got a small Japanese mortar and pestal, (4.38$ Yea me!) and I'm looking forward to seeing to how it compares. I'll make some deviled eggs and let you know. (I grind my own mustard. I'm such a dork. But I think it tastes better freshly ground. As a concession to my sister-in-law I used the milder yellow mustard when I'm making it for an occasion, but for myself, I prefer the black. Much better flavor.)
And we also got (I kid you not), a Black n' Decker cordless grater. What the hell's a cordless grater. Hoppie's like: "It's like calling a wisk a cordless beater!" However in my continuing search for the perfect grater for latkes and potato kugle, I invested in it. It will be awhile before I try it out, but again, I'll let you know. Maybe I'll take it to KY with me. I seem to think RH is a kugel holiday.
