As I mentioned here, I am in the process of getting the kitchen ready. For starters, I want to share with you guys, the gadgets that I currently have.
How’s this for a garlic peel? Yep. Crush garlic with rock and peel skin off! My husband bought the rock from Bombay 16 years ago. And to this day, I have used it as garlic peel.
Here are the knives I have. The knife lying on the counter on the right was purchased last year. The knife lying on the left hand is from 16 years and blunt as it should be. The knife set is about 10 years old and knife have gone missing since. Wonder where lost knives go!?
Here’s my silverware drawer. It is my drawer of shame. Spoons, forks and knives, some old and some which are really old! Mismatched, from different countries and some as you can see are plastic. Hey at least we are recycling plastic spoons.
What can I say about my serving spoons. Some are from England. I take that back. All the white ones are from England.
Here are the spoons I use for cooking. All are from India. They are teenagers now. 16 years old.
Cakes, bread, cookies, crackers, eggs, pancakes, you name it, the whisks are my weapons of choice, my idea of a “Kitchen Aid Mixer”. Baking takes me thrice as long, takes five times more effort and the next time you hear me complain about baking, you will know why!
And to end part 1 of this series, I leave you with this, the spoon I use while cooking using my non-stick pan.
In the next part in this series, I will share deeper darker secrets from my cabinets of shame!
