Weekend Cooking is a weekend blog meme hosted by Beth Fish Reads. Today I’m talking about something a little different than normal. Next month my partner and I are moving, next month also happens to be my birthday month so I’ve been thinking about gifts and ideas for my new kitchen. So here are five items that I would love to eventually own.
1. Kitchen Compost Bin.
While my inlaws do have a nice compost set up, I would like to have some place to put all my kitchen scraps that’s not my freezer. I could be keeping so much more in the freezer if I had something simple like this.
2. Reusable bowl covers.
I hate using plastic wrap. It’s annoying to put on, it’s annoying to get out of the box and it never ever seems to actually stay. I’m really hoping I get something like these for my birthday, or maybe even the beeswax ones.
3. Reusable produce bags.
Speaking of reusable, I have been dying to get my hands on some of these. They aren’t that spendy so if I don’t get them for my birthday I’m definitely buying them once Grant’s new job starts. I was also thinking of sewing some, but I haven’t been able to get my girlfriend’s sewing machine fixed yet.
4. Witchy Apron.
This is something just a little more fun and not something as practical, though honestly I really should start to wear more aprons when I cook! 😀 Anyway, this is a black apron with the pagan wheel of the year on it. It looks super cute.
Again this is more fun, not a necessity for my kitchen. BUT. I had some raclette cheese years and years in middle school for a cool summer course about France. I LOVED it and ever since then have been dying to recreate the experience. Something like this would be a super fun birthday gift.
What are you cooking this week? What are some fun kitchen items that you’d love to have? I couldn’t get an image for the 4th idea because amazon was being weird. Anyway, all the images are from amazon and are not originally mine.
