Today, in an effort to avoid the laundry, I started spring cleaning the kitchen. As I emptied all the drawers I was amazed at how many crumbs, dust, playdough pieces and more have made their home in the nether regions of these drawers -- and all under my careful, watchful, and pretty darn clean eye. Thank goodness for vaccuums. Also, I found a bunch of appliances and stuff that I hang onto even though I don't use them. I finally have been able to part with some, but here are a few that are still residing with me.
First, the electric knife. This was a wedding present. It does work great, but I never think to use it. It's just that I don't carve turkeys or slice massive loaves of bread very often. I don't know . . . what do you all think? Will I use it again? Should I hang onto the electric knife? Have you found any great uses for one?
Next, the hand mixer. I have a beautiful Kitchenaid stand mixer and have probably not used this since the day I got the kitechenaid, some 9 years ago. But it is a really nice one . . . and it still works great . . . and what if my Kitchenaid suddenly stops working??? I need to be prepared, right???? Oh, who am I kidding, if my Kitchenaid quits, I am getting a new one. So then why? why do I feel compelled to keep this? Should I? do any of you have both and use both?
And this is all the stuff I am saying good-bye to. Adios, mi casa no es su casa anymore!
