So it's the start of half-term and any sane teacher would be lying on the sofa revelling in the thought that tomorrow they can have a lie in; they'd be having a glass of wine with their lunch (even tho' it's Sunday!!!!) and accepting invitations to go to the cinema. What am I doing? Sorting my kitchen cupboards! This is all part of my 'plan' to get things more streamlined and easier to find what I'm looking for when I'm cooking. For instance, when I cleared out one of the cupboards I found no less than five partially used packets of sesame seed! I mean....!!! It was a messy job - flour, golden syrup (not a good combination), seeds, I even found a packet of pasta lurking at the back that had a sell-by date of Aug 2008. Anyone fancy coming for supper? So here are some before and after pics and for those of you wondering where I got my stuff to help me organise.. I got all my bits from Lakeland Plastics .
This is my favourite. Sad but true. Before, all my spices were on one level and 4 or 5 deep so I had to pull out everything to find the one I wanted. Now they are at graduated levels and grouped similarly ie curry spices together, herbs together and so on.
Aaaahh.... so now maybe I can go and sit on that sofa and relax in the knowledge that my kitchen cupboards are tidy and clean and look forward to my lie-in tomorrow..
