What's Cookin'?

Let us pause for a moment of silence as we bid farewell to my poor, battered Emeril Lagasse saute' pan who has served me faithfully lo, these many years.

My dearest saute' pan, you have performed your duty with honor but I fear you have become a health hazard what with your scorched and flaking Teflon coating.  It is with great regret I must ask you to retire.

Sniff.  Sniff.

Ok, without further adieu, please welcome the newest member of my kitchen staff:

A shiny, red Paula Deen 5-qt. covered saute' pan!

So, Lisa, what delicious, gourmet treat do you plan to cook first in said new pan?

Coq au Vin? Boeuf Bourguignon?

No, I'll probably brown some ground beef--and not the lean stuff!  Woo hoo!  I really like to live on the edge.

 I'd also like for you to meet the newest member of my housecleaning staff:

Ta Da!  My Bissell Little Green Machine.

I love this little guy.  I've already shampooed my sofa.  I'll probably shampoo everything in this house that's not moving.

Actually, I may shampoo the dog if I can get her to stay still long enough.

Oh, I kid!

Not really.

Don't worry, my bloggy friends, I haven't morphed into a Domestic Diva.  I promise I will still regale you with tales of my culinary failures and housekeeping disasters.

OOHH...did you get the gopher yet?

When you do, bring it and the red pan out to my house...we can fry'er'up.

I kid.
Well, kinda.
Kirk really would.

thanks for the sweet comment left on my post today. Kayla was having a rough day, so I let her read the comments to perk her up. She needed to see the word "pretty" today. you know how tough Middle School can be.

Love the new red pan! I actually have the cleaner. :)

Hope you and yours are having a great week.

Oh, and Amb is right, Kirk really would... :)

In honor of Paula, you should panfry a stick of butter that's been rolled in mayonnaise and sprinkled with cheese.

Your new kitchen baby is beautiful. Fry up some good Hamburger Helper and inaugurate that sucker.

You'll have to report back later and tell us how Paula's doing. She sure looks good anyway.
