Just wanted to share some of the great birthday pressies I received from friends and family. I love getting new stuff for my kitchen and was stoked to receive my first ever granite mortar and pestle. I am currently going through the motions of oiling and salting it to prepare it for future use. I also love the measuring cups that are shaped like Babushka Dolls. The tops are the 1cup, 2/3 cup and 1/3 cup and the bottoms are the 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 cup measurements. The onion thingy and toast bags were a fabulous gag gift from a friend and my sister gave me the lime green silicon utensils and utensil holder. I think they look swish! Can't wait to use everything.
