Ranch, Basil and a Blender

It's so nice to be in a week where I don't have a lot to say.
Not nice when it comes to the end of the day and I think oh...shit, blog entry.
But nice to not have a million little things backed up in my mind to rant and rave about.

So. I have to congratulate a lot of you for getting way better about adding comments. It's been so nice to have some interaction and read your thoughts and contributions. I'm appreciating the use of initials even though I know some of you are hesitant to speak up. But I have to admit there are a couple of you who have used initials that I am struggling to place. I know this is going to make me look foolish but, ME? there is only one reader out there I think you could possibly be that I haven't e mailed....and SIL? (maybe I have too many sister's in law) but I'm struggling to place this one if either of you want to identify yourself in an email I'd greatly appreciate it.

Anyway in this spirit of people being willing to speak up...
I've been spending a lot of time lately getting very excited about the fact that Esme and I move into our very own apartment in two weeks. One of the things I've been realizing is that there will inevitably be a lot of little things I need to buy...especially for the kitchen. You see I've done this moving thing before and no matter what you think you have before you move you still need a million silly little things the first 50 times you go to cook in your new place.
I can be honest and admit that for me it could take months to hit that 50 mark so I don't feel I need lots of new things all at once...but I'm curious. What are the 1-3 kitchen things, especially when you think of condiments, utensils (the big ones, you know not forks and spoons), spices, etc...that you can't live without?


  1. Cheese Grater, sea salt and ice cube tray

  2. Watching "So you think you can dance" and thinking of you!!

  3. A collander or steamer basket, a decent chef knife and ice cube trays! ME

  4. Let me know what you need for the kitchen. I have found quite a few duplicates since clearing out my storage unit and could ship things to you...I do have an extra block of knives, some pots and pans, etc. Just let me know!!
