Sorry . . I originally said sewing room in the title. Every time I’ve typed it today, I’ve typed sewing room. Thought I was catching them and fixing them but . . guess not all of them!
Vince got the Baker’s Racks put together and ready to use. Within a couple of hours of them being delivered, he stopped what he was doing and set them up.
This is so perfect! The things in here are all the things I love using but don’t want to store in the kitchen all the time. Some of them are on shelves in the garage that are now blocked by “stuff” that Vince keeps bringing over from the storage building.
On the very top, the weird looking thing is the Maxam chopper/grater. I love that thing but it takes up so much room because of the legs. I can’t tell you how many times I’m grating cheese or chocolate and I think . . the Maxam chopper would be so perfect . . but it’s too much trouble to dig it out. Now, I can just reach up there, grab it, get it down, take it to the kitchen, which is right off the sun room, use it and put it back.
I’ve already mentioned that the pressure cookers make too much steam go up under my upper cabinets and I have no countertop without cabinets above it where there’s an electric plug. Both pressure cookers are going in there now – meat for enchiladas in one and beans in the other.
The old Cuisinart. That was a gift in 1979 and it still works just fine. I really probably don’t need it and the Maxam but I’m not going to get rid of either and I use both. The empty spot is for the Bosch mixer when it gets found.
There’s more cast iron that will go on the bottom shelf. I see a cast iron skillet on the middle shelf that I just stuck there before stacking larger cast iron on the bottom. There are two more Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers (stovetop) that are still packed so I’ll put those next to the two that are on the bottom shelf.
That setup is so perfect and I’m so glad we thought of that.
The funny thing is that when we moved to Texas (August, 2011), it took til February, 2012 to find the Bosch mixer. In this post, Vince came waltzing into the sewing room with it and I was so happy to see it. Now, it’s been since April, 2021 and we still haven’t found the Bosch mixer. Vince said “It may be in the back of my truck.” Really? Can we go look?? On the other hand . . “it may be still in the storage building.” He said he has seen a box that said “mixer” on it . . but isn’t real sure where. It’s somewhere and we’ll find it some day.
