Whole-Grain Texan is on the Move!

I won't have my own kitchen for the next 3 months, so I'm preying on the hospitality of others... I've found the best way to cook in other people's kitchens is to bring your own tools. My host may have them as well, but it's a bummer to need a whisk and settle for a fork.

My packing list:

2 cast-iron skillets -- 6" and an extra deep 10" -- I don' t like to do high heat in other people's teflon

2 silicone spatulas -- I once forgot they're not all heatproof & ruined my mom's

Thermapen -- for making breads, jam, and grilled meat

2 knives -- chef's and paring

immersion blender -- the travelling food processor, although it doesn't pulse well

yogurt maker -- yep

ladle -- I can't really explain how great this particular ladle is

2 whisks -- big and small

vegetable peeler -- it's a good one

citrus juicer -- for micheladas y mas

measuring spoons -- I've been surprised how many people don't have these

2-cup liquid measuring cup -- for all my other measuring needs

comal -- a double burner skillet for making corn tortillas [tacos]
