Anybody see "Portlandia?"
If you did, you'll chuckle when you read that I'm trying so hard to be green that I'm hoping to give away rather than throw away all these worthy and useful tools that are duplicates of gadgets I already own or that simply don't work for me - but they might for you! I was inspired to clean out my gadget drawer because I could no longer close it.
So, here's the haul; from upper left to lower right:
-a weighty little meat pounder
-a french fry cutter, so wickedly sharp that it comes in a heavy-duty plastic sheath (sheath not shown)
-instant-read steak buttons (reusable)
-a cherry pitter with handy plastic sleeve that makes it smaller in the drawer
-a metal jar opener that My Beloved's mother swore by
-a heart-shaped cookie or canape cutter
-a candy or deep-fry thermometer
-two church keys (can openers) - I found four in the gadget drawer so you may have two of my hoard
-a plastic-and-metal spout for oil or whatever
-a small metal spatula with a cutting edge
If you covet any of these items, simply send me an email at PamelaHyland(at)comcast.net and give me your address. If you live locally, one of these days you will find your prize in your mailbox or on your doorstep. If you live far away, it may take a little longer but I'm game!
