I almost forgot! My mom bought me the Pepper Crate from Penzey's as a housewarming gift!!! It came with three kinds of peppercorns (green, black tellicherry, and white) and a kickass Zassenhaus Peppermill to grind them:
She also got me a four-peppercorn blend that has all of the above plus some super-rare and awesome pink peppercorns. This is awesome. Freshly ground pepper is something that cannot be replicated with store-bought ground pepper. I'm excited because this will make my food taste even better. Yay!
I love my mom, and I love Penzey's!
