More Holiday Gifting
Damn, but these cell phone cameras are getting good! Pretty soon, no one will bother with stand-alone cameras, they'll just point their phone at the view and shazam!
Which is what happened last week when My Beloved wanted to document the progress of our Christmas turkey to send to his daughters, who were both out of town for Christmas this year.
He got a great shot of my new silicone basting brush, a gift from my sister. Her gift last year was better - last year, she climbed into her little car and came out to visit us - but I like the baster, too.
It's pretty big, so it holds a lot of juice and the yellow head removes to go in the dishwasher, keeping the wooden handle in good shape for a long time to come. It did a fine job in helping the turkey to get nicely browned while keeping the inside moist.
There was a theme to my gifts this holiday season. I think everyone in my life reads me like a book. Jacques Pépin's autobiography, to be exact - another gift from My Beloved.
