We needed a few kitchen items and haven't been to Cafe Delux for awhile, so we headed out to Tysons to see if we could find what we were looking for, and have lunch at the same time. The dish rack bottom fell apart, one of the insulated tea cups cracked, the knife handle broke off (and super glue didn't do the job), and the soap pump was rusty. So we found an Oxo soap dispenser - the bottom is left clear so yeah can see when it needs to be refilled. The Simplehuman dishrack was an updated version of the one we had. Now the question is whether to keep the rack on top of the counter or in the sink. We love the Bodum insulated cups and glasses and found a replacement. The biggest issue was deciding which knife to get. We just needed a good all around knife that would work for most activities. The sales person was very helpful, and she unlocked the cabinet for my husband to "try out" the one he liked best. We ended up with a German Wusthof brand made since 1815. I better behave myself now that thing is in the house. It feels like we accomplished a lot, but the day is almost over and we haven't really done anything. Where does all the time go?
