This is going to sound really ridiculous, but I just love toast. Anyway you slice it — bad pun intended — it's just delicious and fulfilling. To celebrate my love for toast I thought it would be fun to give one of you folks a brand new toaster! However I should mention, this toaster is not just any toaster. It's the new Breville Smart Toaster and includes several neat features including a smart one-touch lowering system, a "lift and look" feature" and a "just a bit more" button.

I really have a thing for toast, it's one of my favorite breakfast meals. It's quick and easy - just grab a good loaf of bread, a little dab of butter and you're set. I really didn't think there would be any way to improve on my morning treat, but it looks like I might have been wrong. The Pop Art Toaster, available at Target for $35, should add a tad bit of whimsy to breakfast - and you guys all know how I feel about whimsy... Available in several different colors with a few choices of interchangeable plates (like "boys r smelly", hearts, flowers or cake), it seems like a fun, albeit totally unnecessary, breakfast find. One thing though, it looks like the part with the pattern is actually darker than the rest of the bread. Does this mean the rest of the slice doesn't get toasted?
It's a wonder how we survive the winter with limited sunlight. The sun provides us with vitamin D and gives us hope that spring is just around the corner.
For those living in northern climes, in cities, or lacking windows to the outside world, it is easy to be affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
But now you can have your sun and eat it too. Really.
Check out Sunrise. It's a wall mounted toaster that represents the sun. While bread is toasting, light shines from the toaster. The light is brightest when the toast is ready to eat.
What a great combo: Artificial sunlight and delicious toast. I feel toasty just thinking about it. Unfortunately it's only a conceptual idea at the moment and is not yet available.
