We actually quite enjoy shopping together - always have. I feel lucky to have a man who enjoys shopping...although he finally hit the wall after we had gone to Hobby Lobby, one end of Lakeline Mall to the other, Ulta, Best Buy, World Market, and then finally when we walked into Bed, Bath, and Beyond...he just stopped in the middle of the aisle and said "I can't do this any more...I need a nap." He turned around and disappeared. I, totally UN-alarmed, continued shopping. I found him out in the car with his eyes closed and the car running with the a/c on. I thought it best to give him those moments alone for a brief recovery. :-)
Off we went to dinner...his choice, bless his heart for sticking with the shopping all day. He REALLY wanted to go to a 3-D movie...and I just dug my heels in. 3-D makes me nauseated and I was not doing it. Twinges of guilt over dragging him shopping and being uncooperative about the movie...but sore feet do not compare to nausea and headache IMHO. Anyway, I have digressed tremendously. Hah, I'm sure you are surprised...NOT!
Today, I'm writing about one of my Macy's items. Guess? Yep, a Martha Stewart product. I found two really cool items - neither of which I saw online (doesn't mean they aren't online...just means I didn't notice them ... I have since found them - see upcoming link). The first thing I picked up were a set of Magnetic Spoons...measuring spoons - double ended.
|Double ended spoons - it's like two sets in one!|
I realize as I bake more and more...you just can't make it with just one or even two sets of measuring spoons. If you measure something wet, you have to wash and dry before measuring a dry ingredient. I don't want to dip the spoon I used to measure cinnamon into the baking powder...I need several measuring spoons. The other issue I have is the dangling, connected set. I can't tell you how many times I was measuring a liquid, and as I moved it to the mixing bowl, one of the swinging remainder spoons knocked against my hand, causing a spill - requiring re-measuring the liquid. Ugh!
|Flat bottoms allow you to rest a filled measure on the counter!|
|the magnets are quite strong! I tried to "shake" them loose...they stuck!|
Last but not least - Dishwasher safe. I wouldn't have bought them if not!
So, I'm just tickled pink with my new measuring spoons. More things to make my life easy when I bake. As Martha would say "it's a good thing".
Next...another Martha gadget. Gotta try it out before I write about it. I hope it works as-advertised because, if so...another happy gadget report! Keep an eye out :-)
Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
