Shopping for Cookware & Dishes

Today I went shopping for decorative serving dishes and an electric skillet. I started at our local Wal-Mart, then to Shackford's, a locally owned kitchen shop, and finally made the tour of my two favorite thrift shops... Didn't find a thing I liked, so I guess I'll have to make do with the serving dishes I have on hand. And when it came time to buy the electric skillet, I took one look at it and couldn't imagine myself cooking anything in it (I prefer cooking in a wok over a natural gas flame), so instead, I bought an electric burner/warmer at less than half the cost. That way, I can prepare the Thai stir-fry on the stove and keep it warm with the electric burner on the buffet table. So, except for shopping for the fresh ingredients tomorrow, I'm all set for my Thai Dinner & a Movie.
