I’ve been a very good vegetarian girl this year. And if you think so too, this are some of the things I would like to receive under the tree this year:
1. A cast iron dutch oven – I would like to try this no-knead bread recipe and a cast iron dutch oven is a must to execute this recipe.
2. A Kithchen-Aid Stand mixer – as you can tell from the previous entry, I like breads and pastries, but I do not like to mix or knead. Plus, it has a pasta attachment so I could do homemade eggless lasagna noodles, raviolis, etc.
3. Rachael Ray’s East/West Knife – I once had this knife in my hand and it was only $40 bucks… now it’s a bit more expensive, but I am sure I will give it good use. I love the way it rocks on the cutting board.
I know these are material things and are just nice to have. What I would really want, if possible, for Xmas is more understanding among people, more patience and more tolerance. Celebrating the holidays amongst friends and family in a humane way. For people to realize that to celebrate the Holidays they don’t need to inflict pain onto other living creatures – like our little siblings – the pig, the turkey, the lamb or the veal, cow, or even the fish.
That’s my true wish… for people to embrace Vegetarianism and to live an all-round more peaceful existence.
