Pen Cap Utensils

Living in the Pacific Northwest, I'm well accustomed to eating Asian foods, so my chopsticks skills are top notch, if I do say so myself. However I'm sure there are those of you out there, that have not mastered the ways of the chopstick yet, and who prefer using a fork or spoon. Now this situation is fine when ordering food at a restaurant or home delivery, your kitchen is probably stocked with utensils, but what if you're not at home? What if you're at you cubicle at work, or worse yet, a work meeting, then what. You can't fumble around trying to fake you way through lunch, even though you know you've tried in the past. Well if you've ever found yourself in this situation, there is a remedy to this, and it's the Dine Ink Pen Utensil Set. So if you think you might ever be in the situation where you might need this, click the link below for ordering information. Dine Ink Pen Cap Utensils

Meatball Grill

When I think camping or BBQ season, pasta usually isn't at the top of the (can't wait to make it) list of culinary delights. However that shouldn't be the case, at least not if you've got the Williams-Sonoma Meatball Grill Basket . Here are some of the features: Sturdy stainless-steel basket has 12 perforated wells to brown meatballs while excess fat drips away. Works with beef, lamb and poultry as well as vegetable mixtures. Handle removes to free up grill space and provide clearance for the grill lid. Based on customer feedback, we've increased the size of the wells' perforations to allow for easier cleanup.

Chariot Skates

Rollerblading is so 1990's, so is this the future? The Chariot Skates concept (shown above) may just be the next big thing to hit outdoor sports. What makes them so unique is the use of only two wheels, with one of them being extremely large, that is compared to an inline skate wheel. Because of the extremely large wheel in the front, Chariot Skates claims that this design enables these skates to handle rougher terrain better than traditional inline skate designs.
