What Kitchen Items Do You Use Daily?

Sr. Elizondo’s daughter is getting ready to set up her own home. It got me to thinking about what she would need for a functioning kitchen right off the bat. So, what are the top items we use in our kitchen on a weekly basis?

  • Hot Water electric kettle
  • Small and big frying pan
  • Small, med, big pot
  • Wrought iron comal (an absolute in every Mexican kitchen I think. I never had one before living here.)
  • Casserole dish
  • blender
  • mixer
  • Cutting board
  • Mixing bowls
  • Tupperware
  • 3 knives: one big smooth edge; one big serrated edge; one small
  • Kitchen scissors
  • Wooden spoons
  • Tongs
  • Ladel solid and with holes
  • Spatula
  • Can opener
  • Cookie sheet

What things do we have that we never/rarely use?

The other 10-15 pots and pans, the other 2 sets of mixing bowls, the drawers full of spoons, spatulas, novelty items, the indoor grill, the wine decanter, the miscellaneous left over dishes from days gone by, the traveling picnic set, the tiny muffin pan, etc, etc, etc.

Is this similar to your daily kitchen necessities?

 

My Latest Buy for the Kitchen

For the first time in my life, I am embracing the “Homemaker” title. Since I’m spending a lot more time in the kitchen now, I needed to embrace the gear too. Behold my first ever…apron.

I saw this by chance at a store called, “Muy Mucho” and the taupe polka dots had me at hola.

I love the big pocket too.
