A NEW TOASTER

Letter T

Yesterday as usual I wanted to make two toasts to eat with my cheese at lunchtime. In fact we never have breakfast but rather a brunch. I put two thick slices of bread in my toaster and nothing happened. I pushed again and again, nothing to do my toaster had died. Peace to its soul !

I have to say it was not the youngest one anymore. I certainly had two others before, and one I especially remember it was a gift of my dear mother. My mother used to buy me things which didn't fit at all into our house, of course without asking what I would like. I needed a new toaster and asked for a white one, because our kitchen is red and white, and also a long one to be able to toast French bread and also rolls. Of course she fulfilled my wish and I got a new toaster for Christmas. When I had opened the box I found a square one, just for two slices of bread but the worst thing was it was dark green with pink roses ! It fitted to my kitchen like a fist on an eye ! She was rather offended when I told her that this thing wasn't exactly what I had wanted for my red kitchen. She loved green. So what did I do, I gave this toaster to a friend and bought a new white one.

So yesterday, the first thing in the morning I did, I went to a household appliances store and fortunately found the right toaster immediately !



This was the old one of which Mr. G. has to get rid of, presented by cat Pookie who doesn't care abut toast and toasters.



and the new one which works perfectly, I tried it out for lunch and my toasts were perfect ! Tonight we can toast on my new toaster ! Mr. G. doesn't like toasts he pretends they crack in his head when he eats them, he loves soft bread. His head is very sensible (apparently).

My favourite colour is green! We have a toaster which we rarely ever use although we do love toasted bread. Reason? Because we're too lazy! LOL.

I knew it! I knew I lived in a deprived country and now you have confirmed it. I have NEVER seen a dark green toaster with pink roses, it sounds so pretty I want one. I do like your red and white toaster. My toaster is boring white and only toasts 2 thin slices of bread.

I must be neighbors with L & R above me, I have only seen black, metallic or white toasters! nice new one, it matches your kitchen so beautifully!

It sure matches your red and white kitchen. When Bill first saw Toast being eaten in Australia he wondered why people liked to eat burnt bread. Now he enjoys toast too especially toasted ham and cheese sandwiches (sangers in oz speak).

Red is my favourite colour so I love your kitchen colour scheme, I bet you are delighted you found a toaster with red accents.

I love your kitchen! Growing up, my mom's kitchen was red and white. That is a cool toaster, I like that you can toast French bread in it. Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday. xo,

Remember the good toasts Mélissa and me we ate at your table for the brunch! Mélissa was at the cinema tonight and Pierre and we planned a brunch with duck paste, cheese and melon I bought a bread with poppy seeds! I need energy for tomorrow at school!

Very smart toaster! They just don't last, do they?

Judie said...

That is certainly a snappy-looking toaster with it's red accents!

My mother used to do the same thing to me. Frustrating, isn't it?

I love green too but I can see your point lol
Toast doesn't always have to crunch although this is what I like most about it lol.You could put it at the very minimum and it just dries a little and gets gooey with butter lol

Love your white and red toaster. It looks so nice in your kitchen. Pretty and functional!

SandyCarlson said...

What a gorgeous toaster. I think your cat would not turn his back on my old metal thing but would run away in disgust!

(I did talk too much for a wordless day. Sorry for breaking the rules!)

Teresa said...

I just love your kitchen! It's amazing you found such a perfect toaster to go with the kitchen.

Mum knows not to get me anything with pink. It would end up going to someone else.

I don't even know if our toaster is plugged in. I think it has the most recent mail on top of it. Would not be a good idea to toast anything in there at the moment!

Francisca said...

Oh, what a cheerful kitchen, and it's Terrific how your new white and red toaster fits in, Gattina!

Your kitchen is so fab! Any toaster would be happy to live there! :)

Birgit said...

Lovely toaster! So -- when can I come over for a slice of toast?! :)

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

PS: See my T post here! :)

Jenny said...

Oh Gattina! Your kitchen is so happy and bright! I think your white toaster is brilliant! And there is nothing better than crispy toast with a bit of jam or cheese or a light meal!

Thanks for sharing this terrifically cute post!

I enjoyed visiting you this week.
