Nice pour spout on it too peep. Great addition to your collection.

Mom had this before I was born. I used to squeeze limes. lemons and grapefruits all the time as a kid. I got it when mom passed. I have never seen another like it anywhere.

I'm definitely not as gadgety as others here, but do have several different pepper grinders - one for regular black Telicherry peppercorns, one for white peppercorns, & I just purchased one to use with Szechuan peppercorns. Although Szechuan peppercorns are frequently added whole to many recipes, sometimes a grind or two can add just the right "twist" to a Szechuan stirfry (even if it isn't in the original list of ingredients). Oh, & I also have a sea-salt grinder.

I love these knives.
THEy look like a sturdy well made knife peep.

We have an older Belgique set that DD's X gave us like 8 years ago.
I learned that all that is needed, is a few swipes with the steel sharpener, and the knives cut like when new.
That is the set that drove me crazy looking for the missing steak knife for over a year.
There is nothing more irritating to me, than having something missing in a set of something.
Well..... one day, I was in the back yard, and in the middle of some high weeds, there was a knife blade shining. I was so happy to find it, I came in and wiped it with Clorox, and then scrubbed it to return it to the set.

It was mistakenly thrown out in the yard with table scraps.

A 6 cup porcelain tea pot with infuser

I just restocked my loose rosehip and hibiscus leaves and also oolong leaves when I went to Fairway market. Now I can make a pot. I like my tea ball for single cups but sometimes one is not enough.

Nice looking pot peeps...
Tina has one same pattern / color, but it is narrow at the top. She is in to tea once in a while.

Son Jimmy is Sooo fussy with his tea blends and brands. The other day he wanted tea, (and believe me, Tina has like 30 or more different kinds ) and he said he didn't like the smell of any of them. They smell like Dirt, he said.
He brings his own when he comes over now.
I found out one thing though! If I eat too much sodium, and my ankles swell a little, I drink that Green Tea, and it acts like a diuretic and the swelling goes down.

"Me",....I'm a tea bag tea person. My favorite is Red Rose.

Nice gifts, Peep!

I have the Lodge Dutch oven and love it. Took awhile to season properly, but now it's as non-stick as the very expensive Le Creuset!
