Ouch!

All this time I've been bragging about my kitchen gear and cooking skills.
Well last night I was put in my place.
Although it my sound impressive that I was cutting a chiffonade on some rolled collard greens, I also cut a nice clean slice through my finger. Luckily I live in walking distance to an emergency room and have health insurance. Six stitches and in and out by midnight. Not too bad for a Thursday night.

Best present

Even though I own a ton of food processing equipment now. The dusted gray Kitchen Aid stand mixer that Sarah got me for Christmas was hands down one of the best Christmas gifts ever.
All I've made so far was a pretty lousy loaf of bread and a batch of Pizzelle dough that I never used but you got to start somewhere.

proud owner of monstrous industrial ice cream making equipment

For those of you that have been inquiring about the progress of my ice cream business adventures, I do have a few updates. Though we know we are in a little over our heads we went ahead and purchased two pieces of industrial equipment. A 4 quart Taylor batch freezer will be our ice cream manufacturer and we also got with the deal a blast freezer which hardens ice cream down to 20 degrees below zero. We haven't tried either yet because they were a real trick to transport from Teaneck NJ into my house. We hope to get production up and going by the end of the week.
