This year, when I made my infamous cranberry bread (recipe from La Leche League's Whole Foods for the Whole Family - my copy is about 30 years old), I used a food processor to chop the cranberries. What I good idea! I said to myself. Later, while perusing some blog entries from a year ago, I discovered that I had discovered the food processor shortcut to chopping cranberries back then. One thing about aging is, everything seems new!
I think this is new:
I bought a rasp zester. Not only no more skinned knuckles, but the zest is captured in the holder AND it is easy to clean.
Another blog entry I ran across from a year ago was my plans for 2010. All I can say is, HA HA HA. I accomplished only about a third of the items listed, and some of those not completely. (For instance, I moved some of the sedum but not all of it, and instead of preparing an asparagus bed, I planted asparagus, which was a mistake.) The best part of gardening is the planning, though - time for a new list!
