I had a few things to take care of in Dallas over the past couple of days, but the biggest was getting my son off to his Marine MOS. He did spend some time with me at the Southwest Food Expo at the Dallas Convention Center. That is an event unto itself. We tried all kinds of great food and drinks. I did come across some kitchen gadgets that still have me laughing. Do you have any of these gadgets?

This is a peach slicer in case you don't want to use the old fashioned knife.

I bet no one has this Mango splitter. It will set you back about 10 dollars.

Why didn't I think of inventing this...a potato eye remover with a brush? It's on the shelves of big kitchen stores.

And the strawberry pit remover! Please don't put any of these stupid gadgets on my Christmas shopping list.
