bestest neighbor ever, Michelle I was encouraged to make a purchase that I will forever and ever be thankful about. Michelle encouraged me to get this salad spinner. I love it!
My only complaint I have would be that I did not think to get one of these earlier this summer. We grew loose leaf lettuce in our garden and, in case you were unaware, it does not come out of the garden clean. Each and every little leaf needs to be washed by hand. This, then, leads to the next problem, drying the lettuce leaves. I figured wringing the leaves out like a washcloth would not be a good idea. I, therefore, layed out towels and proceeded to dry each and every little leaf by hand. Needless to say, we did not eat much of the lettuce.
Next year this shall not be the case. With this handy-dandy washer/spinner contraption. You dunk and rinse and spin and voila, clean and dry lettuce. Also, clean and dry lettuce can then be stored in the same little deal in the fridge. Amazing concept.
I can not tell you how excited I am about this. I am fully aware that I may be the last person in America that did not have a salad spinner. You may all think I'm crazy for even mentioning this, that's okay. I figure the longer I wait to get something the more I appreciate it in the end, right?
ps Michelle, you can come and borrow this little deal anytime. Not that that was your original intention or anything....
