First, the backstory. I’ve lived outside of the US now for about 25 years, but will be hanging up my chopsticks and moving back some time in the next 1-6 months. I need to get my kids into school in the US. All this time, I’ve lived in generally pretty small apartments and my stuff has been minimal. Now, we’re looking at a house, yard, garage, etc and a couple decades of deferred consumption. I’m looking to the Dope to help me identify some things I MUST get. Being that it’s Xmas and people have some wish lists, it’s probably a good time to pad out my list.
For example, I NEED
[li]a good espresso maker. Maybe the Racillo Silvia that Qagtop picked up recently[/li][li]coffee roaster for the home[/li][li]BBQ - and I think I need a Big Green Egg or something similar[/li][li]Kitchenaid Mixer - I know there’s a multipage thread on Kitchenaid accessories that are *not *needed. [/li][li]I’ll start up home brewing beer again, which means I need a home keg system[/li][li]what else do you think I MUST have[/li][/ul]
