Well in spite of the Easter Saturday crowds, I had a rather fun shopping day today!
Here is some of what I found:
We're trying to replace our plastic kitchenware with stainless steel and glass alternatives, so I stopped at Value Village, and for $12.00 got the following:
A wisk. (Mine was broken!)
A really, really cool, old-fashioned ice cube tray. :)
Two heart-shaped cake pans
A cannister (I already put my coffee in it!)
A pie plate (can you believe I didn't already own one of these?)
Edited to add: Thanks to a heads-up from my cousin Tanya, it turns out that the cake pans and ice cube trays are actually aluminum, and not stainless steel. Since there are concerns about aluminum toxicity, I have decided to return these items. I haven't given up though! Has anyone come across a stainless steel ice cube tray in their travels? :)
I also went to the Farmer's Co-Op, and got some things to get started on my organic vegetable garden. :) Not bad for $22.00!
And finally, I stopped at Charlene's Nutrition Centre to get some organic dried basil, and ended up getting a bunch of stuff! Turns out it's an organic dried goods gold mine in there! I got some flour, honey, maple syrup, popcorn, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, kidney beans, flax seeds, almonds, raisins, and rolled oats - everything I need to make some granola bars!
