a pampered chef.....

Not only do I have a dream kitchen now, but we just had a killer Pampered Chef party. This past Tuesday evening, 12 of my friends showed up for an interactive cooking demo. (Some friends couldn't make it and they so graciously ordered online giving me credit.) Those that made the party were part of a special moment for us. We dreamed of filling our house with friends and that evening I was able to stand back and look at so many wonderful women standing in our new kitchen/great room and I felt so blessed. Then, I realized we had room for even more!! Wow!! I never would have had a PC party in my old kitchen. Yes, this was a special evening for sure.

You know what was fun? Free shopping! My party sold over $700 and I got three products half price and $140 free products. I also took advantage of the hostess special this month. So, what exactly did I get?? Glad you asked.

First, let's look at my half price items. I got the 7 piece Stainless Steel cookware set, the 10 inch saute pan and the Stainless Steel mixing bowls.

This is one mighty fine cookware set. :)

This is the one pan in the 5 piece set that I really wanted, so I decided to just purchase it as an individual piece.

These Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls have a lot going for them. I could go on and on....

Now, onto my free products...or mostly free. I think I went over by about 20 dollars or so. (however, an additional 25% was knocked off the amount that went over my free limit)

I am sure I don't know how I functioned before without kitchen shears. I am just so thrilled to be getting some now and I even have the spot picked out that will be their new home. Just call me Susie Homemaker! (or a tad over the edge...)

This lovely piece was hubby's idea. He envisioned me making him homemade apple pie in this deep dish pie plate. I just liked the color.

I don't have any cookie sheets at the moment and I decided this stone, along with my large bar pan, would take the place of cookie sheets. This picture makes me want a cookie!
Did you know you can make a cake in this baby in just 12 minutes in the microwave? Is that a good thing to know???

This tongs are so cute. They fold flat for easy storage. I already have the salad tongs and love them, so this was a logical addition to my drawer.

The mix and pour will be used for some yummy salad dressing creations that I am dreaming up.

Child #4 requested this and she really is excited about it. Who am I to deny her her very own apple wedger?

I saw this demonstrated at another party and it sure is a handy contraption. It squeezed all the juice right out of the lemon with such ease. So, I am thinking of some yummy lemonade.

This microwave cooker was recommended by my neighbor. I am looking forward to steaming some veggies without buying those plastic bags they are selling nowadays.

I think that is it for my free and almost free products. I may have forgotten something and I do apologize. (to the forgotten item....not you!) If you want to learn about these wonderful products, how to score some for yourself, or anything else Pampered Chef please click here.

Just one more thing to show you. This is what I got as the hostess special and I got it for 60% off. It isn't something I would splurge on for full price, although I do love it. I just don't like to spend the money on things like this. However, for $21 I think I can use it enough to justify the purchase. It's cute, isn't it? Of course, I never even thought about using in this manner until I saw the picture here. I was thinking breads and crackers and such. I need explicit instructions when it comes to being creative!!

I am TRULY a pampered chef.....

Welcome to being a pampered chef, Tammy! I have so much PC stuff in my kitchen it's insane! I LOVE my microwave steamers! And I refuse to bake cookies on anything but my stones. They just don't come out as good on cookie sheets! And my PC bundt pan, OH MY!!!!!! I actually have two of them!

Have fun enjoying your new products!
