In most Cubans households there is a drawer in the kitchen were random items are placed. This drawer is called "la gaveta." If you can't find something after looking everywhere else, you look in "la gaveta." La gaveta accepts anything, everything and is often a life saver. It is non discriminatory and you may be surprised of what ends up in there.
Likewise, the following pieces are not random, but rather do not belong in any of the other categories of this book, therefore they get their very own GAVETA.
