Happy Valentine's Day!


Make sure to join Lynn for her I love my Favorite Kitchen Gadget Party!




I love to cut up food. With scissors! Mister gave me this set for Christmas.

I do not enjoy cutting meat. But give me a pair of these babies, and I'm all over it. Stew meat? Sure! Chipped beef? You betcha! Chicken for stir fry? Of course!

And then there is always pastry/pie crust!

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Hi Carol! Oh yea, kitchen shears come in very handy! Looks like you have everything you need to get the job done! Thanks so much for joining the party and Happy Valentines Day-enjoy:@)

Denise said...

You have a very nice set of necessary kitchen tools. Cut away!

I do NOT own a decent pair of kitchen scissors. I'm almost positive that they would head off on a scissor adventure like all the other ones in my house do if I did.

Sigh...

I have poultry scissors that are also my all purpose scissors. I used them on everything except paper... I'd love to have Edward Scissorhands in my kitchen when I need to cut something! Nice blog.

I have a pair of kitchen scissors, but I never have used them in the kitchen! I need to leave them there and use them. Joni

I have kitchen scissors that are part of my Henkel knife set and they perform all kinds of jobs in my kitchen. It might be nice to have a few other pairs for specific functions.

I also have one wonderful pair of kitchen scissors which I keep in the knife drawer, then put in the dishwasher, and I will never be without kitchen scissors again! I love them. Linda

If I had to choose between Mr. Sweet and my kitchen shears, he MIGHT be in trouble.

I guard my kitchen shears so well I do not let anyone else know where they are hidden. I saw them in getting ready for this party but really have not used them for years. Maybe I don't know what I have been missing??

Like you, I love my kitchen shears and use them for everything!!!
Have a beautiful week!!!

I adore my kitchen scissors. We always have a few handy in case the kids have run off with one.

So tell me, did you make that fabulous cake in your header? It is absolutely gorgeous. I would love one. Happy Valentine's DAy.

Denise Marie said...

wow, nice set!!

Carol said...

Great idea! I'll have to try! I use shears for chicken but never thought to cut up meat that way! When my kids were small we had a pair of scissors just to cut their pizza and hot dogs, much easier than a knife.

Sue said...

Great kitchen scissors you have there Carol, I need to throw some hints to my dh, I love to cut up meat with my scissors. I don't have but one and they are about worn out. lol. I adore your header, so yummy looking. Hope your Valentine's Day was filled with many blessings.
Hugs,
Sue

Kathleen said...

They are a big help! My dil uses them to cut the pizza small for the little ones too!

Mildred said...

Hope you two had a delightful Valentine's Day.

We have packed almost everything BUT we keep needing scissors! I guess they will be the very last thing we pack - can't live without them.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh my ... I thought kitchen shears were just scissors that lived in the kitchen drawer and were hopefully not the ones the kids found!

I have 3 pair of them, but never use them for food. and I should, as I hate to cut meat, too!
Great idea.
