Utilize Utilize

utilize it---in other words use it haha---

we all have so many kitchen gadgets that never get used or are simply put away and forgotten and sometimes rebought!

remember that cheese slicer doohickey ---hmmm get it out and at least pretend to have used it---the next time you have a cheese party-----better yet---pull out that old or new fondue pot---and actually throw a fondue bash----you know they are back in vogue--

don't use your colander much---if it's kinda pretty---and they come in some great new colors----take some of your fruit and display it in it-

got loads of dessert cups or water goblets----go ahead and make a simple dessert---can be as easy as jello pudding or jello itself---just top with candied fruit or nuts and see how fast it goes----

that huge dish aunt Carrie gave you for a wedding present----toss up your pasta with the sauce and make it extra special in your new favorite pasta dish-

have massive amounts of coffee cups and saucers you hardly ever bring down-----serve your dessert in them or put a small plant in one on your window sill----or just have on the sink to hold your rings when you are cooking or washing---

and what about all of those cookie cutters that are clogging up your utensil drawer----next time your grandkids are over make a pizza crust with crescent roll dough and delight them with their own mini favorite shaped pizzas---or better yet---let them do it

and why not use that egg slicer---now who doesn't like their salad topped with symmetrically sliced eggs

so take a fresh look around your kitchen--and think can I use this and in how many ways!

  1. So clever you are with utilizing these things. I just sold the extras at garage sales over the years. When we were down sizing hubby's parents' home they had 4 kitchen drawers full of gadgets; I managed to get that down to two :)

  2. You're right. There are a lot of things sitting in my utensil drawers and cupboards that could be put to good use.

  4. When I was young, Mom let us make custard desserts in the Fostoria footed fruit cups (I suppose) that had been a wedding present.

  8. I never seem to use my saucers. So, one goes on the stove as a spoon rest and another is on the floor for Lacey's cat treats.
