My sweet aunt and uncle gave Wilson and me a gift certificate to Bed Bath & Beyond for Christmas this past year. I have to admit something about Bed Bath and Beyond — that store overwhelms me almost to the point of being frightening. It is so massive and has so many useful things in it, and coupled with my extraordinary ability to rationalize just about any purchase, I could easily spend a mortgage payment in there.
Truly, I think it’s the Beyond part that is so scary. What is BEYOND? You mean to tell me there is MORE than the 100,000 items you carry in this store? Absolutely insanity I tell you.
But here’s the best part about BB&B — its online store. I can easily peruse to find what I need without spending $200 on strange potholders and a lemon zester. Phew.
Anywho, with my handy gift card I purchased a new set of knives, and my culinary life has never been the same since. February’s Investment Piece of the Month = a few good knives, but these knives in particular are bomb, the best meat knife ever. Thank you Marilyn and Norman!
These knives are so good. Last night I made zucchini noodles (zoodles!?) for Wilson and me with the big knife. A bit time consuming certainly, but my zoodles were freakin’ on point because of the ultra-sharp, ultra-precise blade of the Henckles knife. Henckels I love you.
This set of Henckels knives is $100, and worth every penny. Buy them. Do it.
