Yesterday, I headed over to Linens ‘N Things and bought my mom the cookware set she deserves.  It’s a stainless steel 10 pc set from Emerilware (sound familiar?  BAM!) and the best part….comes with a free cast iron pan instantly and a 7″ kitchen knife (which I have to do the mail in rebate type of thing with).  I’m so excited.  It was a bit pricey, at $200, but I think it’s one of those sets that will stand the test of time.  [I tried to make that part sound epic.] 

Now I need to save up some more money so I can buy a set for Sergio’s Mama.
