Spring is garage sale season, and I’ve been hitting up quite a few these past weekends. I struck gold a while back at a designer’s garage sale when I took home a huge bag of fabric, but that’s not food related – or at least until I get around to the project of making dish towels...this year?
I’m a firm believer in the theory that if you wait for it, it will come to you. If you need a finger sewn back on after a lawnmower accident, you should not wait, but certain things will come to you – for free or cheaply – if you wait. The Cuisinart ice cream maker I’ve been wanting came to me this weekend at a garage sale, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m excited to make ice cream this summer – or sooner. I just need to look up the manual on line to figure out how to work the thing, and I’ll be cooking…um chillin’ in no time.I also scored a party food cookbook from a series of books you can pick up at TJ Maxx and
My partner wanted a fondue set, and what do you know? It came to him! The set looks just like the one I swirled hunks of steak and bread in during my youth, except ours was that yummy ‘70’s yellow.
My best garage sale kitchen score to date – a KitchenAid standing mixer that you shell out the big bucks for when people get married...for $20. Score!
