three or four weeks ago.
I love it and want to get some, but we'll see.
This is kind of a silly blog about the really old kitchen stuff I have and still use all of the time. We're kind of a "If it's not broken don't fix it" kind of a family.
Speaking of broken, now that my hubby has finished replacing the radiator in our Jeep, our dryer broke the other day. He found the problem today, got the part and fixed it already.
Now if we had to get a repairman, I think I'd be waiting for two to three weeks for my dryer to be fixed. I'm spoiled by the talents my hubby has been blessed with. Thank God for this because it saves us a lot of money, not to mention time and frustration.
On with the oldies, but goodies...
First up is our twenty nine year old Revere Ware. I received it for Christmas shortly before my first marriage. Funny thing is, my current hubby had some pieces of his own so we combined our sets when we got married fifteen years ago and have lived happily ever after.
Same vintage year here. Got this from my former SIL who was selling Tupperware at the time of my first marriage. Notice the dark brown plunger thingy. I lost the original down the garbage disposal. I had never had a GD before and didn't even know what happened to my plunger thingy. They were out of the tan color so I accepted the brown one. We use this everyday.
This one came with this house when my hubby bought it nineteen years ago. He bought it as a fixer upper house and for $2,000 more he got everything in the house. There were some really cool things in the house, but we just couldn't keep it all.
I love this bowl for popcorn. It doesn't have it's lid anymore, but we don't need it. I wonder how old it is?
This is the prettiest Tupperware I have. It has a blue ladle too. I use it for popcorn too and colorful salads. I think it's about fourteen years old.
Sterlite and Rubbermaide storage containers have been my friends for many years. There were many sizes and shapes in the Rubbermaide set. Just two Sterlite pieces. Some pieces have gone by the wayside, but I use what I have a lot.
I just had to have the set on the left. There were different sizes and they all stacked nicely and fit great in the cupboard. I had a set with blue lids and one with red lids. Don't know why the red set is gone. Probably a yard sale item. I don't even have the whole blue set anymore. Impulse buy back in the 90's I think.
I have a canister set of the white one. They are full of sugar, flour, brown sugar and tea bags. I love this set.
The knife was my mom and dad's. I think it was in their camper. When they sold their camper we got the contents for our fifth wheel. Nice deal. I think the grater was in that group too.
There's a story with the grater. I guess I'm
not very old fashioned cuz I love this old thing. It requires a little TLC. I do not put it in the dishwasher or let it stay wet. It gets rusty fast.
I bought a very expensive, fancy mandolin style grater once and found it cumbersome, too big to store and a pain to use. I actually gave it away. What an expensive waste. I had saved my very old grater so I brought it out of moth balls and re-commissioned it.
Now this puppy is my very old sports bottle that I fill with ice water every night and put on my night stand. I drink most of it with my popcorn every night. Yes, popcorn every night! I love popcorn!! I don't know how many more trips through the dishwasher this baby can handle. One thing I know, I have some Tupperware straws I can replace this straw with.
So there's your trip down memory lane whether you wanted it or not. It was fun! Glad you stopped by.
