So I got a lot of great stuff for xmas this year and have loved the impact of a few new kitchen things! The first is a small 4oz Bodum coffee press (in purple!). It has helped me like mornings a little bit more throughout winter. I am now able to make a fresh cup of coffee right at my desk and drink from a real mug and I love it.
I also got an ice cream maker (in purple too!). I've only made one kind so far and it was super yummy and tasted as good as what you get at the store, I can't wait to make more flavors, hopefully soon! (But not sure with lent coming up...)
