Earlier this week there was a huge convention in Chicago. ..The International Housewares Show 2011. Perhaps you heard about it?
Of course you did. You’re a food and cooking nut, just like me. You definitely heard about it. Did you get to go?
I didn’t. How sad! But, I did take note of everything drool worthy that people were tweeting about, Facebooking, and posting on their sites. Did you see these things?
Like – the new color from KitchenAid. Is it wrong for me to sneer at my previously cool Green Apple 5 Quart, because I have a newfound obsession with Raspberry Ice?
Dear Lord, I covet.
It’s not only a gorgeous shade of purpleish pink, but hello? It sparkles. I bet those two things together mean it mixes better than any other color. Don’t you? Okay, I’d settle for this amazing brown color. So rich and beautiful!
And what about the new color from Le Creuset? Fennel.
Fennel, fennel, fennel. Incredible shade of green, sure to make you feel like cooking something in a pot for 2-6 hours. I hope a little Leprechaun brings me one for St. Patrick’s Day. I doubt it, as I don’t know any Leprechauns. But a girl can dream.
I’m also quite enamored of Rachael Ray’s new egg crates. The only other place I’ve seen that sells ceramic egg crates is Anthropologie…but not in these colors! Yum. Eggs will never look better. MUST HAVE. If anyone knows when and where these will be available, let me know!
So tell me – what do you think? Like any of these new colors and items? Have you seen photos of something from the show that you just drooooled over? Share! I’m always looking for something new to
irritate my husband with bring into my home.
Did you get to go? It’s okay, you can tell me. I won’t hold a grudge.
