As you all know by now I love to cook. In my old house my kitchen was so well stocked you would have thought that the hubby was shopping at a Restaurant Equipment warehouse. I had every small appliance a girl could want from a deep fryer to a slicer to several food processors. I really think it was more because he didn't know WHAT to buy me for Christmas and my birthday rather than any other reason. Oh I used them - it was great to have all that convenience there is nothing like a kitchen full of high quality Restaurant Supply type products. It made cooking so much easier.
When we downsized and moved into the trailer I couldn't take all of it. I had to carefully choose what I wanted the most. It was hard. I was going from a big Victorian house with a large kitchen into a fifthwheel trailer about the size of that kitchen. I didn't have room for all those appliances that were suited to Hospitaliy Supplies & Hotel Catering Supplies. I left with my KitchenAid and my All-Clad Cop-R-Chef pots and pans. That was it. Nothing else would fit. *sigh*.
Now that I'm back in a big - well, somewhat big - kitchen again I've started to rebuild my collection again but I know it will never be as it once was. And that is OK. I don't really need all those gadgets but it was fun at one time to have had them.
