Wow, mightymoo! That was insightful. Great food for thought.

Many of my kitchen extras are the result of going to Pampered Chef or other parties and imagining me being that wonderful hostess and my guests oohing and ahhing over my wonderful creations. That is not who I am! I do want to be free from that pressure to be someone I am not.

Fyrestorm, Neat idea for the sidewalk lanterns.

Mom4Tot, I love punch with sherbet and gingerale! and I did think about using it for a punch mold. My DH's aunt has a punch bowl and I borrow it for my kiddos birthday parties as they love to have punch for their birthday lunches. I though about getting a punch bowl, but realized why should I when I can borrow one without too much trouble?

what a good idea! and freeze part or give it away!

I don't like using my bundt pan because it is one of the only baking pans I have that I haven't replaced with a non non-stick coated pan.

mightymoo, I really like your perspective. I had a feeling you would find me out The bundt pan for me also reminds me of a time when I did make pretty cakes and was striving hard to be a wonderful wife and homemaker (as I saw it in a previous relationship). It feels good to acknowledge that now, accepting that for what it was and moving on. I can keep the pan if I want to, but still let go of the past associations with it.

Thanks for your input everyone

We have 4 or 5 melon ballers.
And 4 blenders, in various stages of working or not-working.
