I actually have this exact mill!! It really is wonderful. You store other nutmeg in the top clear part if you have them. We use nutmeg a lot so its definitely warranted. It sits right next to the salt and pepper shaker. I've lost pieces of my finger on a microplane before (yes I am clumsy - I almost cut each of my thumbs off in the kitchen last week) so the less time with sharp things the better. I highly recommend this mill even though its expensive (and I don't think I paid $40....)

For those of you that have this.. how is the colour different than the picture? Browner? Yellower?

The order doesn't matter because he's just screwing them to the wood to paint and they'll be 'properly' ordered on the wall...I think?

SMM - I speak Dutch! It's not pronounced "van-go" like you pointed out, but van-gock is also not really quite there either. Instead of the "ck" in "van-gock" its a gutteral roll the sound in the back of the throat. Really hard for non-Dutch speakers so I see why Van-go is the better alternative! (PS Hebrew has the same gutteral sound!)

As for Ikea, after living in Europe I can confidently say that "eee-kay-a" is the European pronunciation, but I get made fun of here, where people say "eye-key-a". So whats right is up for grabs really. I'd go with the Euro pronunciation because the company is European!

The Dutch Oven would be my favourite piece...I do make some no-knead bread (in a slightly modified way) but I'd love to try it for "real". Also that cast iron browns so beautifully so I could make really gorgeous stew which would be just perfect in winter....yum....Oh and the colour of this set matches my accent wall in my living room! :)

Looks wonderful!
I just put up some Gila window film a little less than halfway up my patio doors (to hide the street below) and it gives my space and loft feel. Love it!!!

Amazing job on the numbers btw...I can see how that would be very difficult.

My personal favourite is butternut squash soup with ginger and carrot, but I think I'd be making chicken noodle soup for my sweet, but sick, James.

Hmmm....I'm a big fan of all sorts of tapas, but I've always wanted to make a huge paella for a party and have never managed to make one that tasted good enough to offer to the masses..

Oh my goodness!!! I know I'm not going to win this, but I *covet* the MS bedding - so much so that I splurged to get some pillowcases (I know, it doesn't sound like much but I'm a poor graduate student). This would just make me and my bedroom so so happy!
