Ok, so I don't know what everybody elses big ticket item was this christmas, but mine was the Waring Pro Food Slicer. Now let me explain, I have wanted my own meat/food slicer ever since I got home from my mission because just about every Slovene family has one on their counter and I would always get my meats, cheeses, and breads sliced at the store. I really had no clue that Lacey got this for me and I was really excited to get a big heavy box for christmas. I was a flood of emotions when I unwrapped it, mostly pure joy. Today I opened it and took it for its first test run. I was slicing anything I could. Lacey told me that anything I sliced had to be eaten, so I stuck to lunch items. I started with cheese slices for my breakfast burritos, awesome! Next, I sliced a tomato, logical! Then an orange, perfect! And last an apple, cool! The kids thought it was cool that the apple was in wheels rather than wedges and so we ate them. I felt like I wasted less food by having my food slicer than if I had used a kitchen knife, again awesome!!! I can't wait to buy a hunk of meat and just slice it up. Hail, to the Waring Pro Food Slicer, I highly reccomend you all get one. Yeah, I'm talking to you!
