My birthday is next week, but my boyfriend hopped to it early and gave me my gifts already.
Last night I came home to two packages from him: a cast iron pan and a hand blender!
The story of the immersion blender was initially a sad one. My parents bought me one two Christmases ago. I saw chefs looking badass with one on Food Network and I got irritated with recipes that would tell me to transfer a soup or sauce to a blender if I didn’t have a hand blender (I don’t even have a regular blender, bitches, I have a Magic Bullet!).
So I was sooooo excited about this fancy toy when I got it.
Then a couple months later, I had to move. I decided I would pack the hand blender last because I didn’t want to bury it under a bunch of crap and leave it susceptible to damage.
I think what happened is I forgot to pack it at all because after I moved, I never saw it again.
I was sad. And felt very guilty.
Sugar Daddy bought me the exact same one my parents gave me. So I feel reunited with a lost love that didn’t meet its full potential. Hopefully I can be better to this blender. At least I won’t be moving for years now, if I can help it.
As for the cast iron, my boyfriend isn’t even a big cook but he LOVES HIS CAST IRON. He makes cornbread and skillet pizza in that thing all the time. He evangelized it pretty effectively because I began to covet the cast iron. So he spread the love on that front, as well.
Happy birthday to meeeeeee!
And to Mikey, too, in a way.
What do you make with your hand blender or cast iron pans? What kitchen toys do you dream of?
