I'm slowly going to build up my raw kitchen. I have a Vitamix already--one of the best appliances I ever purchased (that and the rice cooker, which I guess will be collecting dust once I go 100% raw unless my husband still uses it). Today I bought my first chef's knife--a really good quality one. I also bought a new chopping board, since the one I've been using is falling apart along the edges--I guess I didn't treat the wood properly, or something. And I've been wanting a cheese slicer (the hand-held ones that are like a peeler) after seeing my friend make wonderful thin "pasta" noodles out of zucchini--so I got that for a few bucks.

What I wanted to get today was a Cuisinart Food Processor that was supposed to be on sale at Tuesday Morning for $80. The sale, I found out, doesn't start until next Tuesday morning. So, on my way out I saw something else I've been wanting--a professional mandoline slicer. So, I bought that, instead!

Now, I'll clean up the kitchen a bit and put my new things away to use later in the day. :-D
