That eliminated sharp or pointy things. It also eliminated large quantities of liquids, like that giant bottle of vanilla that looked so enticing.
If I lived nearby, I probably would have come home with a 25-pound bag of bread flour, but I set my sights a little ... lighter.
Honestly, though, I have a lot of things from the catalog already. So I ended up buying something that I already had - the catalog calls them nylon spreaders, but I use these things for a whole lot more than that.
They're perfect for scraping ice cream off the sides of my ice cream maker, for example.
|What is this yellow gadget?|
Yeah, not a huge purchase, but something I could use, and more important, something I could put into my carry-on.
So where am I going with this?
A gadget giveaway!
This time there will be FIVE winners. Each will win a RuMe reusable tote bag and a mystery bag of kitchen gadgets. The contents of the mystery bags are all different, but I'm sure you'll find something interesting, useful. or just plain odd. And the reusable RuMe bags are darned nice. They fold up small so you can stash them in your purse, backpack or back pocket.
|Want a hint? I wrote about this once on Cookistry.|
1.) The required entry is simple. Just leave a comment telling me what you think the yellow gadget (above) and/or the green gadget (right) are. And by the way, if you win, you might get one of them in the mystery bag.
2.) For an extra entry, follow Cookistry on Twitter and tweet a link to this contest. If you already follow Cookistry, just tweet the link. Leave a separate comment letting me know you've tweeted.
3.) And for a third entry, follow Cookistry some way other than Twitter. Leave a comment telling me that you've done so.
The winner(s) will be chosen randomly, US residents only. To spread the wealth out a bit more, you can only win once in this contest.
Please leave your email address in your first comment so I can contact you if you win. Perhaps I'll set up a fancy email system that automatically collects email addresses, but for now we're going old school.
Contest is closed and winners have been notified. The yellow item is a citrus juicer, and the green one is a green bean frencher. Thanks for participating!
