kitchen love….

I’m not normal. I realize that.

For someone that does not do a whole lot of cooking…..i truly love my kitchen.

I’ve been doing better though…..just so you know.

Yesterday I had some company…..a blog friend and her family traveling thru town….

they stopped by and i had to put together a mish mash of goodies….

but i just wanted to show you some of my favorite things……

I love vintage grain sacks {duh}…but what i love even more are vintage sugar and salt sacks.

I am the one at the flea market that will grab them out of your hands….

yup….

I’m so sorry if that was you 2 weeks ago…….

i’ve been having nightmares ever since……

That’s my mothers cook book above…..she gave it to me when i got married. I think i’ve opened it twice….

first to check on how long to boil spaghetti….

did you know that you have to rinse the spaghetti in cold water after boiling it?

why??

I understand it’s to stop it from continuing to cook….but it seems so silly to me.

I’ve also make a great banana bread from the book.

hint: squishy banana’s make better bread…..firm ones DO NOT.

I do love the book though…..and it sits in a special place…

right along with my cherished measuring spoons from Anthro…..

and I think i’ve already mentioned my love for pitchers…..small pitchers….

i think i have up to around 20 of them now…..

maybe i have ocd. As a matter of fact….i probably do have ocd…..which stands for..

obsessive collecting disorder.


I think you all have at least one vintage scale in your kitchen….

I only have one.

This above is what i put together for my little get together yesterday. Fresh Brie from the farmers market…along with some confit jelly……i also made a heirloom tomato salad…..with basil from my herb garden….{yes…i do have an herb garden…….it’s the only thing i water outside…..as you should see my potted plants..}

and a fruit salad.

I’m sure i am not the only one with kitchen love……

but it helps me feel better when i have someone to talk to about these things…..

kinda like therapy…….we can pretend that you are my shrink and i need to vent…..
except not my dirty laundry…..that i will keep for my other shrink….
the hubby…{i think he get’s a little tired of me venting..}

Oh!! I almost forgot……since we are on the topic of kitchen love…..my dear friend Tara…finally opened her vintage kitchen shop……called Tara’s vintage kitchen…….i am so proud of her!

double Oh!! I also did not forget about the T.J’s story…..it’s coming…on Friday….along with the necklace winner.

xoxo
