Let’s Outfit Your Kitchen

I’m guessing most of you are going to have the majority of these items (you’re likely to have more than I’ve listed), but let’s make sure we’ve got the basics covered. There are also items listed that are optional – If you don’t have an outdoor grill, you could always buy as cast iron grill that has the grates but lies flat on your stove. Just make sure and turn the fan on above the stove. I bet you never turn that thing on anyway. Now’s your chance.
