1. My grapefruit knife.
I’m not a big fan of kitchen unitaskers—those gadgets that just have one, crazy specific purpose and you only use once or twice a year. But this unitasker is my bestest friend. I love grapefruit, but I always hated how difficult it is to eat, but this two-sided grapefruit knife is the absolutely best. I’ve had lots of grapefruit tools in the past, and none of them work as well as this one. I got it from Crate and Barrel. Highly recommended. If you love grapefruit, it is totally worth the $6.
2. Candy Crush Saga.
Are you guys playing Candy Crush Saga? If not, you probably shouldn’t start because it is the most addicting game in the history of all games ever.
3. Sugaring season.
I’m going to write a whole post about this once sugaring season is done, but, guys, I am loving making maple syrup. It’s so much fun (well, everything except for hulking the 30 pound buckets of sap up the hill to the house). I haven’t even tasted the stuff yet because our first batch was finished the day after Ash Wednesday, and I’m still loving making it. And we’ve already made our money back. We spent about $50 on supplies and we’ve already made about $80 “worth” of maple syrup (according to Costco’s crazy cheap maple syrup jug prices). And our buckets, taps and covers will last for decades if we take care of them. Yay for cheap, hyper-local sweeteners!
4. $6 growlers.
We pick up our CSA at a local brewery on Wednesdays. We recently discovered that, on Wednesdays, the brewery has a special where they’ll fill your growlers for $6 a pop. That’s a steal. And delicious. I <3 beer. So on Wednesdays, we pick up our CSA, get a growler, and we’re pretty much set for the week.
We spotted the first dandelion of the season this past weekend. Spring is here, kids! Spring is here!
