I thought I would share with you a few items that have become almost indispensable in our kitchen.
Because we eat a lot of fruit and salads and are cooking more with fresh veggies, we have had to create some new habits.
And, who doesn't love a new gadget to help you achieve your goals.
Several years ago I bought a Mandoline Slicer but seldom used it.
Now, with all the prior slicing and veggie prep that we are doing, this little forgotten jewel has become a treasure. I made the most perfect Julienne Squash and Zucchini the other night in only minutes. And, the clean up is minimal.
This particular model is a little different from mine, but it can be found on Amazon HERE for about $16.00
I found these veggie keeper bags at Kroger and they are the best things I have found for keeping all the sliced and chopped veggies fresh. They are reusable and the veggies will last for at least two weeks.
I first found them in the clearance baskets for less than $4 but you can order them from Amazon HERE.
We have found that we are eating more salads since having all the makings ready before hand.
This Apple Corer Slicer Wedger
has become something we use multiple times every day.
It is a 5 in 1 Vegetable and Fruit Cutter with 5 Stainless Steel Blades that include a Mango Slicer, Tomato Slicer, Potato French Fry Slicer, Apple Corer. We even use the tomato corer to cut onions. Works perfect. You could even use the potato slicer to cut up a boiled egg. The blades are very sharp and doesn't take a minute to rinse off.
All you have to do is change the blade which a snap and you are ready to go. You can find it on Amazon at Kruger Home.
Another new favorite of mine is the Prepara Herb Keeper
We got ours at SAM's and can be purchased on line at the above link if you don't have a store near by.
Here, I have mint, rosemary, thyme and parsley ready to be used at a minutes notice. I love the way they look on my counter and the fragrance the fresh herbs provide. There is a water reservoir in the bottom to keep the herbs fresh for days.
To close, let me show you my beautiful amaryllis and clematis blooms.
It is impossible to capture the true rich color of this beautiful flower.
I hope your week is full of beautiful and good things.
"The Lord bless thee, and keep thee,
The Lord make His face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee.
