making it work...

we are making do in the final few weeks before our move. and occasionally finding ourselves missing things that have been packed up. one of these things is a rolling pin. why i packed the rolling pin is beyond me. thankfully a straight-walled cup comes in handy for rolling out dough, and we had enough to go around.

of course, it's worth noting how many things we haven't missed. so much of what we have in our kitchen is superfluous. it will be worth thinning out the non-essentials while we unpack. before we make room for them in the new kitchen.

on a side note, little lucy has become a pretty efficient helper in the kitchen. she can crack an egg, work a whisk, and roll out dough nearly as well as i can. all that time spent letting her "help" has paid off--she really is a helper now!

Love the repurpose. I've never owned a rolling pin. Can never justify the $$ cost. I tend to use a wine bottle (vodka if we have it chilling in the freezer).

A year ago we moved around the world with just 7 suitcases for the 3 of us. It's amazing what we are making do without. (and what I couldn't do w/o...like my sewing machine!)
