Another Great Find

So the other day I bought some plastic wrap. I didn't really think about it and just picked up a box at Duane Reade. That night, I opened the carton and pulled out some plastic wrap to cover a bowl of chopped bell peppers and scallions in preparation for an omelette that I was gonna make the next morning. I started to tug at the plastic wrap to cut off a piece when I realized there was no blade. Instead this plastic wrap had an EZ Slide Cutter. Whoa. How come I've never heard of this before? What rock have I been living under? I'm totally enraptured by this. I wish I could think of stuff like this. Now I have nice clean and smooth cuts for my pieces of plastic wrap.

(Sidebar: I have been having this Nigella omelette every day for the past week. It's an omelette with chili & bell peppers, scallions, turmeric, cumin and coriander. Then add some chopped cilantro and drip some Jamaican Pick-a-Pepper sauce, which is sort of like Worcestire sauce and I bought by accident at the store because that's what I thought it was. Finally, roll it up the omelette in a piece of whole wheat lavash bread and eat like a wrap. So good.)

From Jayne: Sometimes we must disagree: I find the EZ Slide Cutter obnoxious - the box must be prepped to use it (I resorted to scissors until I found it one time!) it takes up too much space, requires two hands to use, during which the plastic wrap gets snarled. Did someone sue them over getting a cut from the built-in cutter on the box edge??? On a different note, the omelette sounds heavenly! Do you deliver??? To C'ville???? :-)

Nigella rocks.

My ex boyfriend thought so, too. I think he was gay.

I like the Glad Press-n-Seal. Grabs onto the things I'm trying to seal with plastic wrap 100 times better than any old saran/cling/reynolds crap. No slide cutter, but it rips pretty easy anyway. Get it now, and you will be converted forever.

I've never heard of this slide cutter either... but I like the blade because I've never had a problem with it and I can do it super quick. I'm a plastic wrapping machine!

and that omelette does sound yummy.. but I can't eat something more than twice in a row without getting tired of it.
