I still kick myself that I left the vintage ice crusher, and a million other things. The giant Boos cutting board, for instance. You?

    Hi, lessley:

    I kept the Le Creuset in exchange for *everything* else, thinking I'd come out ahead (Fool that I am!).

    Aloha,

      I scored a couple pieces of Le Creuset, too. A cool vegetable braiser that's orange.

      I kept the grill and lost the person who could use it. I still came out ahead. ;)

        I've never been divorced, but I did use moving as excuse. I had this extremly large oven/broiler given to us when we got married, and DH insisted on using it as a "toaster oven". This thing was huge, and we were moving from one small condo to another. The only way I was able to get rid of it was to throw it in the dumpster first, and then tell him that it didn't fit on the new counter afterward. I hated that big, ugly SS appliance and all of the precious room it took up on my small countertop. But, since it was a wedding present, DH would not part with it.

        Hey -- maybe it's the little white lies that have help me stay married for 30 years, you never know.
