Planning to can peaches, I went to the Canadian Tire to get some lids for my jars. They cost me about $65.
A few days later I went there to get a few keys cut. They cost me $50.
Why such expensive minor purchases?
Well, it’s because I am in that certain mood. They’ve been having very big sales on some very nice kitchen items.
The first time, I came home with a Lagostina pressure cooker. I’ve wanted one for a while, since, as a vegetarian, I cook a lot of beans and pressure cookers are good for making dry beans not dry quickly. I’m sure it has other uses. How could I resist a $150 product for $50?
The second time, they had very deep discounts on Kitchenaid enamel coated cast iron pots (you know, those small round Dutch ovens?). How could I resist? A $100 product for $30?
Now I just have to figure out what to do with them. I’m looking forward to autumn, when stews and bean dishes are more appropriate.
