The Orgasmic Chef

In My Kitchen, May 2017

It’s been a while since I posted about what’s in my kitchen. I haven’t been shopping much but I have wanted a new pressure cooker for a long time. I have an electric one that doesn’t work very well.

I wanted a large pressure cooker for the big jobs so I got an 8 ltr. Scanpan on sale for 60% off and I’m really happy with it.

I saw this egg cooker/pancake cooker on a Facebook ad and went to Aliexpress to see if I could get it for way less. I paid $4.50 with free shipping. I haven’t tried it but it needs a bigger pan – thankfully I have one. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I love an electric wastebasket. It’s great when I have both hands full of trash and it opens for me. The old bin I had was round and it was hard to scrape off from a cutting board. I found this at Costco and I’m really pleased. I also picked up bags that fit perfectly and enough to last a year. The only problem is with the stainless steel because I live along a salt water canal so everything metal gets rusty over time – and often it doesn’t take long.

A good friend reminded me that I hadn’t brought you up to date on how I’m doing. She said that she noticed I’m posting weekly but I haven’t said how things are going. I have a doctor I trust completely and that means so much. While there is no cure for the disease (Forestier’s Disease/DISH) I have, it is manageable if the right medicines are found. My problem has always been that I don’t react well to most all pain relievers. Recently, I was headed to blindness before we tracked the culprit down and reversed the changes to my eyesight by stopping a drug. Now I wear a patch on my back that has brought me to nearly normal most days. Some days are great and other days, I just rest. I’ve learned a lot from my friend Krista at Rambling Tart about nurturing myself when I have to and working hard when I can.

If you’d like to see more kitchens, check out the list at Sherry’s Pickings. She’s the new host of In My Kitchen, where we get to peek in the kitchens of food bloggers. We’d love to have YOU join us too. In My kitchen started with Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and then Liz Posmyk from Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things took it over. Sherry is just getting started so she’d love your support.
