I am a total dork. I often narrate my adventures in house-making in my head. Or have conversations, as though I am interviewing myself on some swanky TV show.
For example, today after my morning session I got home and was starving. I wanted to make a smoothie, and I wanted to make a big enough batch that I could send some smoothie back to work with Hubs after lunch. So I took out coconut flakes, frozen bananas, frozen triple berry mix (THANKS MOM!), yogurt, 3 big leaves of Kale (THANK YOU KITCHEN GARDEN), and some water… and I could BARELY put the lid on the blender.
I thought to myself Mindy, this is folly… There’s no way you will blend this.
But I wanted the smoothie so I tried… and failed. And smelled blender engine smell… I suspect a new blender will be purchased soonish. 😦
But I had all the stuff together, what was a girl to do?!?
Then I had a moment of inspired genius…. THE FOOD PROCESSOR… my oh so beloved food processor… My kitchen gadget I
couldn’t wouldn’t want to live without…. I took her out, and spatula-ed all the smoothie ingredients over, and turned the food processor on to level 2….
Worked like a dream!!! I have two fabulously thick and delicious smoothies… Mine’s almost done and Hubs is chillin in the fridge. 🙂
As I was marveling at my resourcefullness and declaring undying love for my food processor, I started interviewing myself…
At first I was thinking of a list of kitchen gadgets I could not live without… but as I thought about it…. I realized there are ones that I really could do without but they make things more convient versus which ones I truly would be up a creek without…
Here’s my list.
Convenient but could do without:
- Egg slicer
- Toaster oven
- Waffle Iron
- Omelet Pan
- Rice Cooker
- Bread Machine
- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer
- Food processor
- Dishwasher (Okay, it’s not a true kitchen tool, but with massaging, my hands require a dishwasher!)
- Knives, cutting boards, etc.
What are your gadgets?
