Putting the Dollar to Use

img77mWhen we lived in Lafayette, I bought a chinois strainer, pestle and stand at a garage sale for one dollar.  The tool is used to make  ultra-smooth soups, sauces, and clear stocks.  I have been storing this bulky thing since getting it in ‘06 but had yet to use it.  In the effort of getting Eliza to like her baby food better, I thought I would try to put the homemade baby food through the chinois to make it less chunky.  I believe that it helped, but Eliza was just not a fan of baby food.  So, I guess I am going to have to find some recipes that call for this tool (maybe from my new Julia Child cookbook) in order to use it more frequently.  But, I did get my dollars worth!
