A few accessories in my kitchen this October…
An avocado sock… I didn’t even know they existed until a kitchen accessory loving friend thought I might like one. Made from wool, the sock apparently ripens avocados faster than a paper bag, well I didn’t put that to the test but who cares, the are so cute. I placed a very hard avocado inside and it took about a day and a half to ripen. Now I want a pair of socks! And on the subject of avocados this is one of our favorite pates made with avocado.
My lovely son brought me this gorgeous handmade lime green pho bowl set from a Vietnamese craft center that employes handicapped people near the Cu Chi Tunnels. Perfect for a serving of this prawn and rice noodle soup.
A stylish partyclette by BOSKA. At the time of buying I did wonder if they were a bit gimmicky and would the tea light candles create enough heat to sufficiently melt the cheese. Glad I bought two (the other for hubby), they work perfectly and the melted cheese slides easily from the tray. The trick is to use thinly sliced cheese of even thickness for best results. The partyclette are so portable, easy to use and perfect dining ideas when catching up with your favorite Netflix programs.
When it’s tea for one this colorful small cast-iron teapot is perfect for brewing my white and green teas in. Also, usually store these special teas in an airtight tea caddy rather than the bags you take them home in.
Lovely when friends think of you (and your blog) when traveling and bring back souvenirs, the cheese board from Ireland and the pretty glass handle cheese knife from Italy… they must have been on the same page when shopping.
You can never have enough servers and these large wooden chopstick servers are great for picking up pieces of slicked meats, cheese or noodle style salads.
