Of course, I had to go right to the site to check it out. There it was in all its glory and at a great price to boot, was the 12-inch Calpthalon pan with cover. The urge was starting...it was inching up my toes, forcing them to mobilize into the bedroom where my pocketbook was residing at the present moment.
The tingling continued, this time migrating down my arms, to the tips of my fingers where the itch began to get compulsive... I was being forced to reach into my pocketbook and pull out my wallet where my arsenal of credit cards reside.
Like a moth to a flame, like a paper clip to a magnet, like my mouth to a plate of pasta, I was drawn to grab the card and run to my computer...
Click on add to my cart, my Amazon account knowing what came next, already had me logged in and ready to go. Click...which shipping address would you like to use - what else, mine of course!
No problem on this end Amazon replied, as they have the very same arsenal of credit cards living on their site, in my very own little BUY ME, GET ME, GIVE ME, account.
Click...your purchase has been completed...yippee!
Three days later (without even paying extra shipping charges I might add - see Marc it was a real bargain after all) my huge box arrives via my very favorite Big Brown truck.
The excitement continues...I open the box...
The moaning and groaning, the ooohing and aaahing follows, I am in heaven...I can't wait to use it!
But wait, the moment of truth has arrived...
WHERE THE HELL AM I GOING TO PUT IT ?????????
I needed another pot like a hole in my head! Speaking of heads, perhaps I should wear it as a hat???? Let it double as a breadbasket on my kitchen table????? Plant my basil in it????
I put my thinking cap on...rearranged my kitchen cabinets yet another time (last week it was the pizza peel and pizza stone I had to magically fit in there,) and once again I have persevered and the pan is now living in my kitchen.
I even put it to use with Anne's Shrimp Scampi - after all I had to make the scampi, so I needed the pan, right?????
Look for the Scampi post and the Pan, coming soon to a blog near you...
PS: You too can have this pan if you pop over to Amazon or just click on the link on my sidebar!
PSS: This pan will also force you to exercise - you will trim and tone your arms because you have to hand wash it, it can't go in the dishwasher (but it really does clean up easily)
