We were joking about my raggedy kitchen linens during the Holidays…can you tell these are my favorites? All potholders I made from old kitchen towels and a little bit of cotton quilting fabric. Nothing fancy, nothing special…just good utilitarian potholders. These get nasty, get thrown in the washer/dryer and then they’re back on the job.
Do I have pretties? Oh, you bet. I use them for table hot pads and put them out when we have people over. Guess I just hate to see them get dirty and worn like my old favorites.
In looking around the kitchen, I got to thinking about what I’d take if I couldn’t pack and take it all…there’d be 3 wooden spoons of varying lengths and sizes. A wooden spatula. My favorite red handled kitchen knife and the larger black handled one. A 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup. These hotpads. A 4 qt saucepan by Calaphon…it’s stainless and has a wonderful glass lid…double handles for ease of holding…and a 10″ stainless steel skillet with it’s glass lid….oh, and a 6 cup blue pottery mixing bowl. I’d miss the rest, but I could get by with the above! Just don’t tell Ernie!!!
