A Few of My Favorite Things!

I love my Salter Aquatronic Kitchen Scale. LOVE IT. I haven't used measuring scoops since I got it almost a year ago. It comes with a chart to convert cups and such to ounces. The pros say that measuring by weight is more accurate. Well, I'm a 'wanna be' pro, so why not? It sits right out on my counter, and looks beautiful. I use it almost daily. It is my favorite kitchen gadget.

My Dyson Animal Vacuum. No bags, see all the junk you get out of your carpet, dump it out. Never loses it's suction! It works GREAT! LOVE IT!

Lindt Lindor Truffles.... yum... If you've ever tried one, well you know what I mean!

My Butter Well. It holds a whole stick of real butter, and keeps it soft on the counter. You put cold water in the bottom (about 1/2 an inch), and add the stick of butter in the cup. Flip it down into the water when you're not using. I bake homemade oatmeal bread, and the butter is always soft and ready for spreading. Way better than the rectangular butter holders I had before. There are fancier versions, but I like this one because it holds a whole stick of butter.

This list couldn't be complete without my Kitchen Aid Mixer. This is a picture of the one I have, I bought it for a deal on Ebay! Cookie dough, pizza dough or bread dough mixes up easily. A must have if you cook!

The list wouldn't be complete without my Canon Digital Rebel. It's not the latest super duper mp camera, but the first one they came out with. I bought it on Ebay (can you tell I love a bargain?) and it's been to China and back, and has taken thousands upon thousands of photos. Someday when it croaks, I will upgrade to the higher mp version, but for now my 6.3 mp takes a great photo.

So, what are a few of YOUR favorite things? (Other than your family members and pets!) As you can see I like kitchen gadgets. Maybe you'll show me a gadget or two I don't have?

I'm going to tag:
The Ghelerter Twins
Brenda's Blog
Never Too Many
Lazy Days of Summer

The above mentioned people HAVE to do this challenge. For the rest of you, it's optional. ;) If you do the challenge, be sure to comment me so I can check it out! Wouldn't want to miss it!

Love the list! I have the same Salter scale and LOVE it!!! I weigh everything including the 39g of chocalate for my coffee in the morning :D

I would have my Kitchen Aid there too, but have to tell you that I had a Dyson and it died - for real! I got a Roomba and I am totally in love :D

Ladybug hugs!

You are a diva. Is your apron white batonberg lace? YOU HAVE A DYSON????? So loving you right now.
FM keeps telling me I have been good, but not that 'good' to get one. :o)
He also throws it in my face, that I loathe all the gifts that plug in for my birthday/Xmas.
Hmm..gadgets I can't live without?
This might be humourous.

Still thinking! I have too many favorite things! Will accept the challenge, though! said...

Oh, you and rambling momma got me good! Ok... I'm on it.. Just be patient. That's what I tell the man too.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

Favorite things?! How Oprah of you!
These gagets look splididly divine. And oh so domestic. I'm not the world's most domestic diva, but with gizmos like that I wouldn't be able to resist.
