Hooray for Taco Tuesday! Taco night (and day) means delicious food to be. Tacos are easy to make and can be filled with anything. The hardest part is deciding what to put in them. Therefore, tacos frequently get the ‘everything’ treatment: meat, cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, hot sauce… wait. Who’s gonna hold the taco still while all that goodness gets piled in?
The Kitchen Craft Mexican Ceramic Taco Holder, that’s who. Or what, as the case may be. Either way, it’s not plastic and it’s very affordable. Considering Taco Tuesday rolls around once a week (at least…), the taco rack makes for a nice little kitchen helper at not a lot of cost.

Do birds sing when you enter a room? No? Maybe you can settle for a little music to accompany your entrance. The Guitdoorbell is here to help. Hammacher calls it The Guitar Doorbell, but you can call it whatever you like — and tune it to match.
From the Hammacher Schlemmer description:
The included pitch pipe and chord chart are keyed to enable tuning to a chord that fits the day’s mood or a portal’s intended use, whether a major that welcomes expected company, a pensive minor seventh that “guards” a teen’s bedroom, or a complex diminished when anticipating an in-law that often arrives unannounced via a back door.
If you’re in Sacramento you can get it at The Guitar Workshop on 3248 J Street. Who knows what chord will accompany you as you walk through the door?
They say cooking can be like a symphony — install a Guitdoorbell over all the cupboards and find out!

Watermelons can be imposing. I mean, they’re huge! But they can be beaten. Imagine a fight between a watermelon and a pumpkin or even a jack o’ lantern; I think we all know who would win. Take this Melon Cantaloupe Watermelon Stainless Steel Slicer Splitter for example: it is of the familiar push-down-to-slice variety, but huge enough to tackle a watermelon. Of course, just because it is a huge, gigantic slicer doesn’t mean it will work. It would appear a good deal of force is still necessary to push it through the great green monster — but at least it won’t be grinning at you mockingly while you try!

If you’re gonna slice tomatoes do it right. No not with knife skills, but with the New Star Foodservice 39696 Commercial Tomato Slicer, 1/4-Inch. Every slice a quarter of an inch, every time. Mmm, uniformity.
Designed for restaurants and food service establishments, there is no reason why you can’t pick up one to go with all your other countertop appliances. Cofeemaker? Check. Toaster? Check. Powerful tomato slicer? Check and mate!
Now if they could make something to produce consistent slices of bacon and lettuce for perfectly-sized BLTs each and every time.

No wonder his throat feels a little raspy. Hope he isn’t coming down with something. Say, like Jedi-itis.
However, if you’re feeling brave, you can try to replicate the Vader Gas Bottle Log Burner by following along with Instructables user doddieszoomer. Just make sure ol’ Darth doesn’t cough on you when finished.
