Guilty Indulgence

Confession...I have found myself watching QVC. I thought that would never happen. I thought of it as a perpetual informercial and thought I would never have the patience to watch it like a television show.

I became aware of QVC in the '80s. Someone close to me used to keep the show on for background noise. --Which I sort of get. But anytime the television is on I have to watch. Like a moth to a flame...I must go to it and watch. Background noise? But there's picture and people and moving things...I must watch.
In all honesty, I do get having a talking kind of television show on to fill silence. And QVC people are absolutely talking to you at home. But...they are not your friend. 

But here's the thing. I have favorite sit-coms on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday there is a void. And I do want to watch something (judge me if you must). We no longer have regular cable TV, so when flipping channels there's very few channels to land on. About a month or so ago, I was flipping channels and landed on QVC. Honestly, I didn't realize it was the shopping show at first. It was one of the chefs showing cooking in some sort of pressure cooker. 

It didn't take long for me to realize he wasn't really showing me how to cook. He was showing me why cooking in this really cool bowl makes cooking so easy and fun.
Oh they sold the gadget bowls in four different colors. And, I love color. I was hooked. I had to see more things they had to show. I had to see what colors each thing is offered in. And I needed to know when each color sold out. 

And after a few minutes with the microwave gadget they began to show these lovely crockery/bakeware tableware. Okay...they had it in the blue. They had it in the red, not to be confused with the cranberry, which they also had. They had it in the green (not a fan) and the spice/brown. And they had it in the black. 

Oh, I was tuned in now. I began to imagine which color would I choose if I were to Definitely black. 

I confessed my new QVC tableware obsession to my Mamacita. She understood. She has it! In the blue! The next time I was over, we used it for dinner. It is lovely! 

Imagine my happy surprise when I got my first pieces for my birthday! And I got it in the black! LOVE! I know the ideal use is soup and sandwiches...but I couldn't wait to christen it. So, I used it for cereal. Two of my favorite things!!

Now if you excuse me...David's in the Kitchen on QVC. I gotta see what colors they have in everything.
