I'll admit it, I'm starting to get sick of my house. I'm growing tired of waking each day with another room to work on or boxes to sort. Which is why on Saturday when I spotted an estate sale, I knew I had to go. I arrived at 7:30 for an 8:00am start. Luckily the other shopper and I were let in early. It took me only a couple seconds to spot this juicer for $15.00
I had one of these in Virginia but gave it away to a friend after she showed interest in it. I had an Acme juicer and didn't think I really needed two. But of course ever since I gave it away I have been missing it. I am keen to make my own nut butters as well as a lovely Kale & Lime juice drink that can really only be made in a Champion Juicer. And how rare these days to find one in muddy brown?
I also bought a henckels knife set. I didn't spot it right away until the sellers started talking about knives. I looked over and they were talking about some swiss army knives but then I noticed on the counter a set of henckels for $2.00. Having been watching videos like "how to break down a chicken" on this blog I had just been wishing for some sharper knives. This photo includes 6 of the new knives mixed in with my own collection.
I've been a very happy cook this last week, chopping and slicing with my new set.
Not only did I get out of the house and do my favorite thing in the world, but I got to take a needed break which I'm feeling is a bit overdue. Our last weekend to work on the house is coming up on Saturday. I just need the inspiration to get through the next week and a half.
