Friday, I stopped by Cactus Flower on the island. I checked out the after-Christmas sale items...didn't find anything I just had to have, so I moved on into the kitchen gadget section...I swear it just sucks me in! I found several things that caught my attention - one I had been looking for relentlessly - so that was cool. I was hoping to find a silicone whisk but I didn't find that there.
The first little gadget I was happy to find was a simple wooden toast grabber. I previously wrote about finding some long silicone tongs at Cactus Flower that worked okay - but I really wanted the little wooden tongs that I could leave perched up on my toaster - easily available. My newish toaster doesn't seem to spring the toast up high enough...nor the bagels...so I have looked at Wal-mart, a couple of Targets, Kohl's, and even Central Market and World Market in Austin. Hadn't been able to find the little wooden/bamboo toast tongs I remember seeing everywhere years ago. Don't want to stick my metal tongs down in the toaster...that seems dangerous!
|See - you have to reach down in to get the toast...|
sucks if you don't have tongs!
|Toast Tongs - make life easier!|
I bought one more gadget...but haven't used it yet...so more to come in a day or two!
Bon Appetit, Y'all!
