My Laziness, My Promotion, and My New Knives

I blame my lack of posts on the lack of daylight.  I go to work in the morning, come home in the dark, and have to force myself to stay awake once I hit 8:00 PM.  This means that I haven’t done a lot of creative cooking and even less writing.

Curse you, nature!

I mentioned in one of my last posts that I was getting promoted.  At the time, it was all very up in the air and the beginning of the holiday season added to that confusion.  I am now officially a Tommy Hilfiger selling specialist (for the ladies) at the Macy’s downtown Boston store.  Basically, I get to promote Tommy and build a client base.  It’s all very exciting.  I have power, mwahaha.

If you want your sweater world rocked and you live in the area, come see me.

Finally, I have fancy sharp things!  My birthday gift from my grandma was going to be a knife set, but I couldn’t settle on anything so I picked two big knives instead.  I absolutely love them and they’ve cut my prep time in half.  Thanks, grandma!

The first is a Henckels 8″ chef’s knife.  Forged, full tang, nice and hefty.

My other baby is a Wusthof Santuko knife.  It’s also forged (as opposed to stamped, blech), full tang, but it’s a lot lighter than the Henckels.  I used this to cut up some cauliflower last night and it sliced through it like butter.  I’m in heaven.

I’m a few meals behind now so you can definitely expect some deliciousness on here this week.
