VeganMoFo, Day 4: HALP!

October 4th, 2009 10:12 pm by mad mags


In what’s shaping up to be an annual tradition, the Mr idle miner kostenlosen. and I spent the afternoon tramping through stalks of corn at the Liberty Corn Maze. For today’s VeganMoFo post, I’d hoped to share some lovely autumn-themed photos from the maze and its other attractions; cue images of fat, orange pumpkins; juicy, red apples; Halloween decor; steaming cider; maybe even an apple bobbing contest wie kann man sendungen aus der mediatheken. While the maze itself was fun, I came up empty on photo ops. You see, the Mr. and I have been going to the maze every fall for a few years now, but this is the first time we veered right towards the adjacent pumpkin patch Re-imovie.

Well, come to find out, the farmers running the show expect you to pay for the privilege of purchasing a pumpkin from their enchanted lil’ patch phase 6 download for free. While the corn maze is the main attraction, they have some other activities set up for the kiddos next door; admission for the two is completely separate new adobe reader for free. And the patch is part of that second attraction! So even if you want to buy a pumpkin – or, I assume, something to eat – you have to pay a surcharge just to go browse download the game mill. Weak, right? And if that isn’t bad enough, one of the featured activities – you know, for the children – is pig racing. Ugh capital bra allein herunterladen. As much as I balked at the prospect of being ripped off, sponsoring animal abuse cinched the deal. No pumpkins this weekend!

So instead, I’m sending out a Very Serious SOS herunterladen.

Behold, my miscellaneous kitchen utensil drawer:

2009-10-04 - Kitchen Drawers - 0003

It’s a fooking mess download work programs for free. Ladles, whisks, ice cream scoopers, Tofurkey basters, spatulas, sporks, knife sharpeners: all in shambles. If a given implement is located in this fright of a drawer, it’s nigh impossible to find what you need, when you need it musescore herunterladen. And on the off chance that you are lucky enough to find that which you seek, good luck untangling it from all the other junk inside. Tines cling to wire, spoons become ensnared in banana mashers, tongs intertwine with beaters…oy vey! Seriously, there has got to be a better way.

By comparison, my eating utensil drawer looks positively dreamy. Sure, the tray might not fit snugly inside, and maybe the knives jiggle to and fro, but at least I can find a spoon on request. I’ve thought about using similar trays to herd the other utensils into some semblance of organized quietude, but that would probably require a drastic expansion in drawer space – and that’s real estate I simply don’t have. Heck, some of the lesser-used utensils are already languishing in storage for lack of space!

Hey, big time vegan foodie porno blogger peoples – how do y’all store your mishmash of handheld kitchen goodies? Peg boards? Lazy Susans? Toy hammocks? Sustainable-harvested bamboo armoires lined with skeins of crushed red velvet?

    I have a couple ways to store my kitchen tools. Ever since I was little we had them in a large container on the counter but you can’t over stuff those containers or you come across the same problem of having to fight to get out the item you need. In my last apartment I had three containers lined up on the back of my stove and that worked well. It looked cool too because I reused some large roasted red pepper cans from Costco (you know the can’s with the label painted on rather than a paper label).
    I also like to hang them, it’s like going into a well organized garage with all the tools placed on the walls. That worked really well in the teeny studio apartment I lived in. No counter space for a container.

    I really like kitchens that are clean but you can see lots of cooking/baking tools. It makes it look well used, loved and lived in. And besides that you can get to things quickly. You might be able to thin the collection too, get rid of unneeded doubles in favor of something completely different maybe :)

    We have big vase-type thing next to the stove that holds our most-used utensils. Oft-used but nonessential ones (can opener, ice cream scoop, vegetable peeler) are in a top drawer. *Really* nonessential ones (pastry cutter, potato masher, extra huge spoons, etc.) are in a junk drawer at the bottom, where they share space with random incense, batteries, and other junk. The Mr. has promised that our next kitchen will be the size of a small country, with plenty of space to hang pots and utensils and everything else.

    I also have a big pot on my counter with the most frequently used items in. The lesser used are kept in a draw but MAN – you have a lot of utensils!
    That cat is cute. I wonder if that Morse code means anything……..

    A kitchen the size of Nauru would be nice! Or, failing that, a cool ceramic jar for my goodies. But then I’d have to get matching utensils, dontchathink?
