nori seaweed sheets for sushi
lots of really cute cookie cutters
Now I will not be using those ingredients/tools for one dish. I just don't want you waiting for an update on the seaweed saffron anise cookies!
I know that it is a bit OCD to take pictures of one's pantry! I know, I know. I was just very pleased with myself!
** By the way, do you see my neat little stash of Skyline chili stacked on the bottom shelf next to the tuna??? Mmmmm...can't wait for cold weather! Been saving it since a little fairy put it in my trunk during our Cincinnati visit this summer!
Oh yeah, my spice rack...you may not be able to tell from this picture, but yes...all the herbs and spices are alphabetized. I will never forget a couple of girls sneaking into my pantry during a Drunko, I mean Bunco, get together. They were in there for only a few seconds, but they totally screwed up my whole system! Julie! Cindy! You know who you are! All you could hear from behind the door was squealing and giggling! They knew that they had pushed my button!! During today's job, I threw out lots of outdated spices. I really wish that the manufacturer would put an "use by" date on the label. I did find a few that did have that. (the chili powder that said use by 9/00---I'm assuming that it was Sept. 2000. I tossed it!)
This is obviously my baking section. Do you see the huge collection of colored sugars, sprinkles and decorations that is on the second shelf, far right? It will be cookie time before we know it! Can't wait to do this with Anna Jane and my Mom.
And what pantry or closet is complete without a bit of wall art? The plaque, from our friend, Amanda, says,
"We will drink no wine before it's time. It's time."
Hope you enjoyed the tour! It satisfied my need to show my work!
Stay tuned for next week: cleaning out the sock and underwear drawer
