Look at this Stuff

Meleah @ Momma Mia Mea Culpa Tagged me with a "Look at this stuff" Meme. I couldn't wait to do it, this is a fun one!
You have to find five things around your house that say something about the person you are and snap a picture of them. Then tell us about them.

Here we go:

I have a slight obsession with cookbooks. This about 2/3 of my collection, the others are ones I don't use as much, so they're in a Huge Tupperware tub. This also doesn't show the cooking magazine collection. I especially love (see the little stack on the top shelf laying on it's side) OLD cookbooks. I have some from 1915.


These are the 5 cooking utensil I can not live with out. Icing Spatula, Flat Spatula, tongs, cookie scoop with a silicone bottom for pushing out the dough. Nice and precisely sized cookies. And a wooden spoon. All laid out on my Island that I love!



My favorite room in the house. (ok, besides the kitchen) My Bathroom. The combination of the Blue color and the White trim is SO soothing. I found the perfect shower curtain and curtain to match, added a window film (cause I hate mini blinds) and viola! I can lock the door, have a nice relaxing bath, glass of wine and a good book, and I'm beyond content. I'm not really sure how that little person got in the picture. And why it looks like he's about to throw something into the toilet. I better go check...


I love to reupholster furniture. These chairs had an ugly cream textured fabric on them. I added the plaid, that matched in color, the floral valences I made on the kitchen windows and back door. I also love to refinish wood furniture. Sand, Stain, etc. Give me an electric Staple or nail gun and I am one HAPPY woman.


I'm not sure what this last one really says about me.....I guess I like to entertain? Yeah, that's the excuse I'm sticking. I own 30 assorted sets of martini glasses and 42 different types of wine glasses. Seriously though, we had a martini party and I went around and bought all kinds of clearance martini glasses. I can't have my guests drinking from plastic cups. Same thing with the wine glasses. Half of the number are my good Crystal ones, the rest, for everyday use.



So, there you have it. Me in a nutshell. With 72 assorted drinking glasses. As for tagging, it's open to anyone who wants to play!!

MIchael C: Yes, I guess I do throw swanky parties. I will be throwing one this Sunday for 20 ppl.
Yes, the cookbooks that I am missing are RACHEL RAYS!!!! ;)

Michael C said...

HA! That's exactly what I meant!!
;-)

chefmom said...

Michael: the one Rachel Ray book that was purchased for me, i cooked (or rather charred) on the grill and served it to my family for dinner. How DARE they ruin my birthday with a gift like that!!!!!

Momo Fali said...

Will you marry me? I don't even think my husband would mind.

Michael C said...

Did you grill it with EVOO???



Sorry, had to ;-)

kellypea said...

Yanno? I actually don't have one of those flat spatula thingys. I do have other spatulas, however. And the cookie deal? Jeez. That's cool. I'm liking the blue & white -- a favorite combo that I do not currently get to enjoy buy have quite a bit in the past. And no way on the number of SETS of martini glasses? REALLY?

chefmom said...

Momo: Sure! I'm sure my husband wouldn't mind either!!LOL!

Michael C: I can't believe you said that. Don't make me ban you from my blog! ;)

Kellypea: I love that spatula. In a restaurant, those are the 2 things you use the most when you working the line. I just got so used to using it for everything. That cookie thing is awesome. I used it for other things also that can be scooped and popped out. It's SO handy. As for the blue and white...I LOVE it. It's so peaceful. ANd YES I do own an obscene number of martini glasses. And honestly, they do come in very handy. I'll pipe desserts into them also, but I'll still have lats for drinking!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

(breath in for air) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo

Ok, I'm super sorry about my comment yesterday.

chefmom said...

Michael c: LOL!! You'd never be banned. My husband has just been moved to the shed though. He felt it was neccesary to send me a picture of her in an e-mail this morning. What a way to start the day...staring at that Ugly mug!

Michael C said...

Ha!!!!!!! Was he drunk when he sent it? Does he like the rush of thrill seeking? I'm sure when he gets home he will discover that he learned his lesson ;-)

chefmom said...

NO, not drunk just stupid. Hasn't he learned that I feed him, do his laundry, and That I LOVE sabatoge? He is the ultimate thrill seeker. At my expense. He called me from a Dunkin Donuts last week to ask me if I wanted the Rachel Ray posters they were throwing out. I hung up on him. He just loves to push my buttons!!!!
