New Toy for Pepper Boy

My Beloved loves me - and pepper - in just about equal proportions. Some people salt food before ever tasting it - MB is guilty of peppering it before even lifting his fork.

So, you can imagine the envy he felt when he saw one of these at his daughter's house, a battery-powered pepper mill that extrudes coarse pepper with the push of a button - and actually lights the plate so you can see just how much too much pepper he is putting on his food!

Santa brought him one for Christmas - or perhaps it was Santa's elves - his two daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. He is tickled pink with his new toy, gleefully grinding and grinning.

What a crack-up! (Was that a pun?)
We gave a one-hand pepper grinder to a friend who was recovering from a mugging that left her right hand temporarily out of use.
Life is adorable.

Hey - I want one too. I love fresh ground pepper; the stuff that you get pre-ground is blah! Good for the both of you.

Cookiecrumb, yes, I laughed out loud the first time I saw it - but then I always did have a weird sense of humor.

Morgan, smells - oh, yes - close your eyes and breath the good ones in!

Nancy, I'd guess that Sur La Table sells them... unless you have a generous relative who's looking for a birthday idea for you.

I've also seen a smaller battery-powered one. No light, but it's just a little bigger than your palm. I'm thinking perfect travel gift for your Beloved.

Salt? In moderation. Pepper? As I say in restaurants when they're grinding pepper onto my salad, "Keep going until your arm gets tired." I need one of those.

Terry B, I'll be on the lookout for that! He'd love it!

Kailyn, yes, you do!
