My New Colander



Yes, I got a new Stainless Steel Colander. It's so beautiful that I couldn't wait to tell someone about it. (All of my local friends are busy.)
Here it is shown getting ready to help me with supper. I'll rinse some fresh cut chives for my baked potatoes, some lemon balm for the iced tea, and later we'll have some home-made mojitos using my very own mint! It's looking like a very relaxing evening is ahead.

I've been needing a new colander for a long time now. Since this house is 103 years old, everything was based around antiques; therefore, even my colander was a blue porcelain antique. But now new times are coming, and I am going quite modern. Shocking, isn't it?

I've become quite a fan of stainless and this colander is perfect -- so shiny and new.
It's a 3-qt.made by All-Clad. I wish you could feel it to see the quality and the weight of it. I found it at the CSN Stores.com, and it's is one of the nicest things I've purchased for myself. I've been treating my self quite a lot lately, and guess what? I don't even feel guilty. I guess that is one of the good things to getting a little older.

I think I'll thoroughly enjoy using my colander for garden produce and herbs, and it looks gorgeous hanging on the wall.
What shape is your colander in? I'd like to hear about it.

Colanders are important garden tools! I like the shape of your new one. Very classy *and* modern.

My best one (not for veggies with mud still on) is of robin's egg blue enamelware. My sis was visiting me and saw me eyeing it in a shop one day, knew it was my favorite color, and bought it for me "just because." It is a precious item in my kitchen. :)
