See the plastic gold ones? I must have had those babies since the 1970's.
I don't know where I got the one single metal one. I always liked that one, but its desirability lessened the same day its handle fell off in my hand.
The heavy plastic one on the lower left was always nice, too. But as you can see, that handle is also broken.
These batch of measuring cups is semi-retired. They served me well over the years, but now I bring them out only when I need duplicates (which is actually quite often).
But the real workers in my kitchen now are these long handled dry measuring cups.
I've had them for quite a few years.
They are great for dipping into my big jars of flour and sugar (yes, Sissy, they are old olive/pickle jars from the restaurant). See how they fit in so nicely and go way down to the bottom? No more dipping the big spoon in trying to load the cup as its held over top the jar.
They are also very easily leveled off Yes, the are a good thing.
The only problem is my set only came with 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 cup measures. I sure would like to find a one cup and 1/8 cup.
Maybe Santa's elf will read this and I will find them in my Christmas stocking. Last year I mentioned a few things in my blog and they were all under the tree on Christmas day.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
