Gordon, Unc and I made crockpot lasagna yesterday afternoon... plus a from-scratch sour cream German chocolate pound cake... plus decanted a fresh batch of white willow bark extract for our personal use... plus... plus... plus.
It was a very productive day condensed into about five hours. I like to work like that...the three of us working together to get a lot of little tasks done, helping each other.
Here's a peek at my new favorite yellow cooking toys. They are all plastic... or silicone or melamine or whatever... just not glass or crockery.
My glassware and crockery have been taking a licking this year. Man-handling, quite literally! So I'm turning to unbreakable items that can only be melted in the oven... or on a propane burner on top of the stove... or in the dishwasher. We'll see what other creative ways they come up with to destroy or damage my kitchen toys.
There are already some Westie teeth "personalizations" on one of my fabulous new yellow spatulas. The most expensive one, of course. That was my fault for letting that spatula jump off the kitchen table and down onto the floor where the indoor "wildlife" could get to it. (laughing)
It's All Good... a new phrase I've learned of late from popular vernacular. If the plastic stuff gets destroyed, there is more to be found. It's not worth worrying about. For now, I'm putting up the breakable stuff passed down from my great-grandmother, my grandmother and my mother.
If you see something in my favorite Happy Yellow color, think of me! Or snap a picture to share with me. Toodles for now...
