Light blogging (I know, you can’t even tell) because I’m out of town for my sister’s graduation (finally). My family rented a beach house, and let me tell you, it is awful. Furniture straight out of 1982. Fridge literally duct taped together. 1 broken eye on the stove, another that takes approximately 30 minutes to reach medium low heat. My mother and I harbor the sneaking suspicion that it usually gets used as a frat house. But I digress. It is beachside, and it is not my house. So I’ll stop complaining.
But it got me thinking. My family does a beach trip every year, and because my mother is the way she is, she always brings what I call her desert island essentials:
– 2 dishtowels
– a decent chef’s knife + paring knife
– salt and pepper grinders
– oregano and basil or italian seasoning, cumin, garlic, cinnamon
– olive oil
– Texas Pete
I’d add a flexible cutting board and a whisk to that. Thoughts?
