Parchment For Life

Another care package arrived on Friday.  A big box of stuff which I'll keep most of a secret ... don't worry, you'll read about it eventually.  A couple of very cool ingredients!

One thing I'm very excited about is the arrival of pre-cut parchment paper.  I bought (well, my dad did, since he lives in the US) a restaurant-sized stack of pre-cut full-size parchment paper.  18" x 24".  1000 sheets.

A good friend of mine here has a print shop.  So, I had one of his workers cut the paper with their giant paper cutter.  Keep your hands OUT!

Now, 2000 sheets of pre-cut parchment for my half-sized baking sheets.  Hooray!  I figure my life must be pretty good if simple things like this make me happy.

That's so funny about your parchemnt paper happiness. I get excited about such things as well.

My husband works with a guy that owns a coconut orchard down in the Phillipines.

Very interesting you transplanted yourself. Would love to see pics of the Phillipines. Hope you share some time.

Where is the orchard located?

We have coconut trees around here, too. Some down near Abuyog, Leyte. A couple are just in our back yard.
