The system that makes kitchens go is called mise-en-place, or, literally, "put in place." It's a French phrase that means to gather and arrange the ingredients and tools needed for cooking.

new power finally turned on this week. one more well placed outlet in the kitchen would have been nice. but i "cooked" with two devices on simultaneously for the first time today at lunch and it felt like i was breaking the laws of physics. already invested in my first soon-to-be underutilized appliance. got it for about $200. so if anybody has smoothie recommendations.... if i ever actually make soup in it, it might be a harbinger of the endtimes.

Anyone know anything about this Casanova vinegar? From Germany. Completely mind blowing. So so good. I could just drink it right from the bottle. I think no one is importing it to the US, but someone should. Looks like you can buy online here, and it appears you can ship to the US. I will try and report back.
