New Cookware

Norm had some points from his American Express and told me to get some new cookware. I may have mentioned wanting some new pots and pans, but it really didn't matter. After thinking about it, I think I've had my old (copper bottomed) pans for over 25 years.

And so, here is a shot of the old (on left) and the new (on right). These are saucepans. I would say my copper bottom saucepan has faired pretty well after all these years.

I got all excited to cook - especially after watching the movie Julie & Julia.

And for some reason, I decided to clean up all the old copper bottom pans before I gave them to my two daughters (Rita and Jessica). Hopefully they'll get some good use out of them.

Garden Cupcakes

Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes I made for the annual meeting of the North American Rock Garden Society. Whooo-hoo.
