WEEK #2 – Tool of the Trade
Hubbyman and I came to an agreement many, many years ago that I could get what I needed for the kitchen (within reason) and he would not fuss at the cost. I figure he gets what he needs for doing yard work and gets whatever will do the job best, no matter the cost. He has to have the right tools for the right job…I would never ask him to use his weed whacker to trim the trees, so why should I have to use a knife to make a smoothie. Or a cheap $100 blender to make a smoothie when I really need the $350 because it does much better work and will last longer in the long run.
So, here is a list of some of my must have tools of the trade. These are so important to me that I’ve already started saving for some of the bigger items so that I can bless my daughter with them when she moves out.
1. Assorted Peelers for Cheese and Other Uses
11. Potato Peeler
14. Large Stock Pot
16. Large Strainer
17. Medium Skillet
18. Basic Bakeware
19. Pepper Grinder
20. Hand Mixer
22. Good Blender
23. Hand Juicer
25. Parchment Paper
26. ZipTop Baggies
