New Loots!

I got a little “promotion” at work. It’s not a real biggie because it’s just part of the annual evaluation process but since it came with some sort-of-a new title and a little-more-than-I-expected increase, I thought I should celebrate it with hubby. And the only way I know how is to get myself some new loots πŸ˜› Lols. I’m a self-centered woman and celebrating with hubby still has to be all about me *devilish grin* πŸ˜›

So here are my new loots to remember my first year evaluation by. I got them last Friday but only remembered to post the photo now πŸ˜›

They’re on sale by the way. The two books cost me like P2,000.

I have lots of recipe books and food magazines at home which I have to re-discover. And by “re-discover” I really meant toΒ  literally take away the dusts and cobwebs covering them πŸ˜›

Ooh, and I’d like to show you this recipe collection that started it all. I got it for less than US$20 at Costco and it has made all these possible πŸ™‚ Honestly, I have only picked up two recipes from it but heck, it has showed me a lot of opportunities πŸ™‚

who doesn't love KitchenAid? that P25,000 blender?

makes me feel like i'm reading materials from MCLE πŸ˜›

Next time I’m gonna get those Barefoot Contessa books, and collect Jamie Oliver’s, Giada’s, Nigella’s, Bobby Flay’s and Julia Child’s books! πŸ™‚

What about you? What are your loots? What excites you today?

    Wow! I get a high when I see beautiful cookbooks because my mom surrounds herself with them. You should see her collection! I actually even have some of my own even though I don’t cook…yet. Wheeeee! Congratulations on everything that’s been happening to you lately. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person.
