Yesterday I woke up to this, a wintry wonderland. I love snow, it makes me happy.
Other things that make me happy are kitchen gadgets.
Here are my favorites of 2010.
1) The vintage tomato slicer. Bought in the Salvation army for .99cents. Granted it's not the original made by Ecko, but a cheaper Holland version. It's marked TOMADO HOLLAND.
It's the best to slice tomatoes in nice even slices; perfect for sandwiches.
2) The Farberware PRO Santoku knife. The food slices itself, no joke! It was a Xmas gift 3 years ago.
3) The Fireking jadeite batter bowl, vintage as well. I think Fireking really hit the nail on the head on this one. Unlike Pyrex's Cinderella bowls, it pours well....lol. It's perfect of beating eggs and making instant pudding and all things Jell-O.
And now, one of my favorite lunches! A grilled cheese with veggies.
Full of robust goodness. Tomatoes,avocado, green onions and lower fat cheddar cheese make a delicious sandwich. Served on a Bradford House Pyres plater , add a crunchy and sour Moishes pickle and you'll be in heaven! Luncheon heaven that is!
Hailed as Montreal's original Steakhouse since 1938, Moishest has been a favorite for generations. I've never been because it was considered too expensive. But I do like their pickles!
