Re: Food!

Yep, emailing your wife photos of knives...well...maybe better than a prenup...

For $20 its almost a WTF. Saw a similar chicago cutlery set that included some crappy steak knives on overstock for $60, got 5* ratings there, although I dont trust overstock ratings as much as other sites.

Best bet?* Find yourself a nice single santoku knife that isnt overpriced, and a small parer/boner (no jokes please) and leave it at that.* Those are the only two knives I ever use.

I have one like this, although its a henckels and I only paid $18 for it on a crazy sale at penneys.

Best knife I've ever owned, and after the first time my wife used it, she hasnt picked up another one either.
I'm hearing that music from "Fatal Attraction"...

Re: Food!

Never made my own bags...well I did once and said "thats a pain in the butt!" But the resealer function has paid for itself 10x over since I bought this and i'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

Re: Food!

Not before, but the model changed. Because I can close up a bag we have about 6 boxes of cereal, 4 kinds of crackers and several kinds of chips. They'll last a year in a resealed bag, about a month in a bag with a 'chip clip' on them.

Frozen stuff that can be resealed also lasts a lot longer. We've got bags of frozen berries and veggies and can pick handfuls from those and reseal...no freezer burn.

Point well taken though. I ate like 10 people when I was a kid and it wasnt until I was 27 that I could get my weight to stay over 185lbs. Ok that probably doesnt sound very impressive to you stick people, but the girls in the office used to joke that I must have to use safety pins to hold my pants to my shirt as I had no hips at all when I was under 185.
