In my previous post about Kitchen Essentials I forgot two essential things:
(1) a colander
(2) a wisk
I also suggest that you invest in a slow cooker. You can get a good one at any price point and both Target and Wal-Mart have a nice selection. Mine came from Wal-Mart and has a removable insert which I also suggest as it makes clean up a whole lot easier. But seriously, a slow cooker if awesome on days when you know you are going to get home really late because you can toss everything you need for a good soup or stew in the pot and its ready when you get home from class, work or whatever... I'll be posting my crock pot beef stew recipie later!
