Hello everyone. I've been doing some more rearranging in my kitchen. I decided to work on the appliance corner...
I put the salad spinner in the cupboard, put a wine rack in the left corner (it had been in the garage) and put place mats under the blender and food processor.
I moved the coffee pot over to the other side of the kitchen, by the stove.
Grace and Emily talked me into going to a few yard sales on Saturday morning so I have a few "new to me" things to show you.
I'm not sure what to call this, maybe a candle lantern thingy? ;0) Whatever it is, it matches my kitchen was was $2.00!
Lastly, here are some old cookbooks that I picked up for $1.00 each. I stacked them up on my dining room hutch.
~Mrs. Rorer's New Salads ~ 1912
~The Mystery Chef's Own Cook Book ~ 1943
~The Fannie Farmer Cookbook ~ 1965
I know many of you love to read through cookbooks and "The Mystery Chef's Own Cook book is perfect for that. It begins...
"Perhaps I should start this book by answering a question that so many have asked: "How did I, a man, ever come to take up cooking as a hobby?" Well the answer is - I didn't take up cooking as a hobby. Some would say I drifted into it by accident, though I myself don't believe such things happen by accident. I am a Scot, and therefore I see design in all things."
"The preparation of delicious meals in your home is a very important thing. Excellent cooking does not mean everything to the happiness of your home, but it does make a vast difference in any home. It is, I think more important that any other one material thing. The atmosphere created at the table around which the family gathers two or three times a day is something that is surely worth of the best that is in you."
