Peanuts Christmas Coffee Mug

Charlie Brown and Snoopy enjoy continued popularity and actually rank fourth on T.V. Guide's list of the 60 greatest cartoons of all time.  This popularity ensures them a placement on many popular household items as well as collectibles like these handsome Christmas coffee mugs.

I love the image of Snoopy and his Christmas tree both before and after the winter snow has arrived.

The first mug reads, "There's no sense in barking if you don't really have anything to say."

The second mug reads, "It's nice to wake up in the morning with a feeling of well being."

This mug would be especially fun to use in December but of course true Peanuts would use it all year long. 

It is a great gift idea for a Snoopy fan, even if that fan is you!

This Week in Brenda's Kitchen: A Vintage Toaster

Do you remember the toasters with the sides that folded down? You placed your bread upon those metal sides or flaps and folded it back up to toast your bread? I have to admit that I do.

One of my grandmothers owned such a toaster. As a matter of fact, I am almost positive that she owned one like that shown in this picture and, with a large family of 12 children and of course their children by the time I came along, this toaster worked hard at least during the years that I knew it.

I recently purchased this toaster and had fun testing it out for my eBay store. Turns out that it is a Toastess Sturdy Model Number 202 flopper toaster like these ones on eBay. Flopper, of course, referencing the fact that the sides folded down.

This toaster is in excellent used condition. As a matter of fact, it seemed almost unused before I tested it not that testing it hurt it in anyway. However, since it is an electric appliance I felt that it was necessary to test it before I listed it in my eBay store as I guarantee all of my items to be in working condition, unless mentioned otherwise.

Anyway, not only is this toaster in great condition but it worked very well too, almost putting my modern toaster to shame.  I have a long story of disappointment with modern toasters but that is a tale for another day.  This Toastess toaster did a beautiful job of toasting my bread. The only caveat with a flopper toaster is that you have to remember the toast because it does not tell you when the job is done!

See you
in the kitchen!

Food Truck Fight Starring The Swedish Chef and Gordon Ramsay

In my tradition of sharing Swedish Chef cooking videos, I bring you this new Muppet video that pits the Swedish Chef against Gordon Ramsay in a Muppisode called, "Food Truck Fight."

It's made even funnier given my recent obsession with the proliferation of new and interesting food trucks in the city of Ottawa where I live in Canada.

My family teases me that I'm all talk and no action though when it comes to food trucks but I did make it to Ottawa's Red Roaster this fall and thoroughly loved the treat, sitting on a park bench in the Glebe with a couple of delicious pulled pork tacos dripping between my fingers...

Anyway, I digress. Whether or not you embrace the culture of street food I know you will enjoy the Swedish Chef and Gordon Ramsay in this video so, without futher ado, I bring you the Food Truck Fight, starring the Swedish Chef and Gordon Ramsay:



Were you surprised by the outcome? And what did you think of Miss Piggy's cupcake?!?

See you
at the food truck!
