Now on to today's favorites:
We use a LOT of garlic in our cooking. And by a lot, I mean that we go through a knot of garlic each week. It's almost always on my Sunday grocery list. The garlic press is one of my favorite kitchen tools because it eliminates the smelly odor I get on my hands when I chop up garlic with a knife. It's also easier than chopping by hand. While I love the garlic press, J hates it. He never uses it. He says it's a pain to clean and it's just as easy to use a knife. I disagree with both of those statements, but to each his own! Do you have one? Do you love it or hate it?
These were a shower gift from an old friend of mine, and I can't tell you how much I love having these in the kitchen with me. My prep bowls come out very often in the cooking/baking process. I like to pre-chop and pre-measure my ingredients, so these do a great job. We love to eat Mexican food (fajitas, tacos, burritos...if it has cilantro, I'll eat it!), and I love to put the toppings in the bowls for our serving line. They're the perfect size and so easy to store. I also have these little orange prep bowls that I bought at a flea market back in February; they're wonderful too! And they only cost four dollars. Prep bowls are cheap and can easily be found for your kitchen if you don't already have them.
Hope you enjoyed today's post with two more of my favorites! If you haven't already read it, go back and read yesterday's post with my first two favorites. Make sure you stop by tomorrow for my giveaway and two more favorites. I know I originally said my top five, but it's going to have to be top six! I couldn't leave one out!
