So, there are two bins of food scraps to be composted, what’s rapidly becoming a mountain of dishes and other cooking paraphernalia in the kitchen sink, and two loads of laundry to be taken to the laundromat. Yet here I sit, writing this post instead! Professional of me, no? Or maybe dedicated is the adjective you were thinking of? (I’ll settle on Destester of Housework and call it a day)
What I want to share with you are my kitchen-related finds at this morning’s yard sales.
Of course, frequenting yard sales- as well as flea markets, thrift stores, and the like- do require a love of the odd, the old, and the imperfect. I think the following three items fall under all of these categories. Plus, they were $0.5o each! Joy of joys!
I’m thinking maybe the knife might be used for some type of meat preparation? I’ve no idea, as I have not eaten red meat since 1996, and since I was a mere 14 at the time, have thus never prepared red meat myself. Do you guys have any ideas? Here’s a close-up of the tip:
Over on the right side of the first picture is a vintage pastry blender, which we will no doubt find uses for once baking season starts again:
And the last tool, a spring-loaded, stainless steel…chopper? Is it specifically for vegetables? Fruit? Dough? I’m not sure.
Do you have any supercool secondhand finds you’d like to share? Or kitchen tools for which you can’t find a use? Or perhaps you’d like to pass on a pastry recipe so I can use my obviously necessary new pastry blender? I’d love to hear from you!
Hope your Sunday is a savory one 🙂
