Oh The Excitement



It’s the little things in life that make me giddy. Truly.

Like my new salad spinner.

Oh, I know you’re thinking I really need to get a life, but that silly salad spinner makes me happy.

It came into my life about a month or so ago after years of waging war against soggy salads. It was after a batch of freshly washed lettuce turned all brown on me that went researching how to wash and store lettuce properly.

I came across an amazing blog post (which of course now I cannot find) where the blogger guaranteed fresh crisp lettuce that could be stored in the fridge over a week.

How? I wanted to know. I needed to know!

And that’s when she pointed her readers to the holy grail of salad spinners, the OXO Salad Spinner.

I had to have it. Had. To. Have. It.

I went, I bought, I waited while it shipped. And then I tried it out.

My salads haven’t been the same since.

That’s a good thing! I’m thrilled with this purchase, and as an added bonus, it’s just plain fun pushing that plunger that sets the bowls a’spinnin'.

Do you have a favorite kitchen gadget?
