Does This Happen To You?
I found a cheap set on-line and was going to get them. Then I did something stupid, I asked Den what he thought about the el cheapo set. He said, "Let's just keep the old pans." Never ask a person that was a chef what set of pots and pans they want. I'm not kidding 2 hours later, he decided that he would love to have Cuisinart stainless steel pots and pans. After that long discussing pots and pans, my eyes glazed over. I had some cash set aside for replacing everything/something/not sure what DJ broke, I didn't care. And he finally found my weakness. If you talk to the point where I can barely stay awake, I'll give in. This has never happened before. But comparing pot by pot, thickness of pan to lip edge on AMAZON, I gave in and said "just get it!" It was $229.35 for the set but I had some gift cards so figured it was fine and I wanted to think about something else other than the depth of the bottom of a fucking pan. Right before I ordered it, Dennis said he wanted copper pans. The set he looked at was $649.96. I don't think so and I don't think you can talk me into that no matter how many hours your blather on. Well, maybe 3 hours and I would have broken. Don't tell him I said that!
The problem that I see with us spending all this money is the oxymoron of the purchases. I know Den is going to cook some fabulous meals with his new pots and pans and I don't think the treadmill is going to chase away enough pounds to offset it. Maybe if I vacuum and run, it will help. I doubt it. If you have ever eaten Den's cooking, he doesn't skimp on the calories.
It just seems like one thing leads to another and I keep spending. If nothing else, me and a treadmill should make for some hilarious posts. Sigh, I'm destined to be poor and fat.
