Love affair with a gadget
At the risk of sounding a bit loony, I must tell you about my favorite gadget. I am truly in love with a gadget. It is the Foley Food Mill.
I have vivid sensory memories of Mom making applesauce with the Foley Food Mill. I am sure she made other things with it, but I mostly remember the applesauce. When it was referred to in my home, it was always with its surname, the Foley Food Mill. As if there were other food mills in the cupboard? One other household item from my childhood has that same formal naming: the Scotch Cooler. I'm sure I'll think of others (or maybe my siblings will chime in).
You can only imagine my glee when I found my very own at the Barn of Opportunity gift shop years ago.
I won't be winning any awards for food photographs here. My son tells me these don't look appealing at all. You'll have to take my word for it, until blogs have an aroma attachment.
