I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, as strange and distanced as they may have been.
We had a great day, slept in (of course!) and had a nice (but cold!) outdoor visit with my Mom and Sister. Then cooked up a delicious meal.
Cast Iron skillet seared Branzino, roasted potatoes & onions topped with chimichurri. My god was it every good!
Of course, Costco never rests and Boxing day is always a fun day to go to any store (insert eye roll here) So off I went not really sure what to expect. To my surprise it was actually really quiet, the parking lot was pretty empty and I had plenty of room to cruise the aisles without having to dodge other customers. It was a treat!
Here’s just a little peek at a few of the boxing day sales I saw.
Of course I couldn’t help but have this catch my eye.
The Cangshan forged knife & block 17 piece set is on sale for $50 off @ $179.99 which isn’t bad for a set like this, especially if you’re OCD and like things to match in your kitchen.
I’m more of Henckel person, though I will say I’ve used a Japanese style chef knife before and it was pretty darned sweet! The blade has a bit of a different shape to it making precise cutting way easier, there’s a neat website here that list all of the differences between the two blade types here.
I resisted temptation, as most of you know I also don’t need any more gadgets in the kitchen… Yet…
Anyways I’ll let you get browsing folks, we have to get ready for a Zoom family Boxing day cocktail…. I never would’ve thought that would be a thing, but these are strange times.
Merry Christmas folks, happy shopping!
Since we are in the second wave of COVID-19 I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
