This is an extension of my last thread, on soups for easy cooking. I'm trying TRYING to get cooking more and less reliant on microwave meals on weekends. So I got the thought that maybe if I could clean my kitchen counters completely off and put some appliances (like maybe my blender and/or food processor) that maybe it would make prep easier and quicker.
Is there something that sits on your counter top that makes your life much easier for cooking?
(this thread idea was created by my own failure. I made my favorite soup this weekend, but couldn't slice the aromatics for the broth - galangal, lime leaves, and lemon grass. I'd make this soup more often if I could pre slice the galangal then freeze in batches. But I want to hear other's ideas, and hopefully share ideas that will help more than me)
