It is truly spring here at the store and we are here to boast about all the bounty that is arriving daily. I am enjoying the buying process of our kitchen gadget section.
Sometimes I purchase a particular gadget and I am not sure how you will react. I almost buy as if I am testing the market to see if it is cool, functional and fun. Today I am featuring one that is tried and true and another that is brand new.
Design Boom says this about this gadget.
“Designed by a Belgian company Lekue, Citrus Spray is an attachment that turns fruits like lemons and and oranges into instantly useful condiment carriers. Simply screw in the apparatus and your salads, seafood, etc. will have new life. No bottles to recycle or trash, just totally fresh flavors. Smart food design.”
The day we tried it Ben and I constantly sprayed lemon juice into our mouths. But I love the idea of spritzing a cocktail glass or spritzing your salad and then adding a bit of olive oil. Let me know what you think.
I bought these spatula colored paddles a few years ago. We still sell them. They are part fun, part practical. A great whimsy gift to go with a baking cookbook or with bright dish towels. They ice a cake really well or smooth out then whip waves into the merengue on top of a lemon pie.
We are now making goodie bags. This was motivated by the many questions and desperate shopping I sensed from mom’s or dad’s the day before the birthday. We hope it makes crossing off one more thing on your list easier. Check them out on display in the store and ask about price points and contents.
Enjoy our spring local grown flower bounty at this time of year. It is stupendous. Monique does an amazing job. We both make arrangements. Feel free to ask or order a special one.
Thanks for stopping by.
