Welcome to my favorite room.
I was looking for an amazing bread box. And I found this one. It was a total splurge, but I had some birthday money and I really wanted one that would look good for a long time. And it does. I do think the bread stays fresher longer too. It has a little magnetic closure at the top. I like it.
Ok, I LOVE my little spoon and lid rest. I guess you’re not supposed to put lids on the ceramic cooktops — so this holds them and then they just drip into this and I rinse it out and go on my merry way. I LOVE it. It’s also cheap and great. Did I mention I love it? Because I do.
I’ve always wanted to be Rachael Ray with her giant cutting board where she just preps everything and it’s there. And now I am. I have this red cutting board (I love it because it doesn’t slide around thanks to the rubber grips on the edges) and it just sits vertical at the back of my counter, not taking up much space. Anyway, handy little thing.
Ok, random one — our kitchen was getting SO hot in the mornings. We bought blinds, but it has the little arch at the top and when I looked, blinds for that were crazy expensive. So we found this. It works really well. At first it tipped out, but now it stays in place and does just what we need.
And finally, somehow our kids keep leaving our fridge or freezer WIDE open in the garage. It’s bugging me to no end, so I finally bit the bullet and bought a freezer alarm. I guess it can’t be TOO Far from the intended appliances but it works really well for us so far. I’d hate to lose any of the food out there, so I figure it’s a good investment. The two rectangle things go in the fridges or freezers and the digital thing goes in the house so you can read how cold they are. An alarm will sound if the freezers get out of range. Pretty handy.
So, that’s what I’m loving right now. I’m mostly loving Drew’s hammer that’s killin’ all the scorpions in our world. Happy day. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
