Happy Pi Day everyone! I wish I had motivation and time to actually bake a pie. Instead, I’m making homemade pizza tonight. Some people call it ‘pizza pie.’ So, close enough for me!
I’m just made at myself for not planning a special meal into the weekly menu plan. I also didn’t plan a St. Patrick’s Day meal, either! I might have to switch some things around.
This post is post number 14 out of 31 days of my post a day blogging challenge. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I don’t feel like my life is interesting enough to share something new and awesome everyday. That’s why I asked for topics.
Seriously, you can still get your request in. Do you have a question for me, something you’ve always wondered or wanted to know? Do you want to see a photo of something? Ask and you may receive!
Kelli from The Domestically Impaired Guide to the Retro Kitchen Arts asked for a photo of my pantry and spice rack/cabinet/drawer. That’s a pretty easy request, so I snapped a few photos.
Yeah. Those PastaRoni boxes have been in there for a long time. I don’t remember the last time I even used one. I should probably check the expiration dates soon!
Also, the inside of the pantry and the coat closet in the foyer are both this weird bright green color. When I was painting Trinity’s room, we discovered that it was once entirely painted with the same weird green but was painted over with white. It adds to the mystery of the previous owners. They must have been really odd people.
I guess I shouldn’t judge since I painted every room a different bright color. My downstairs bathroom is even bright green! Of course, I like to believe it’s a better shade of green, but I know not everyone would agree.
Anyway… I’ll get to the spice rack and cabinets now. Besides the refrigerator/freezer and pantry, I keep food in three other spots. First is my spice rack. It’s part of a set I purchased from Ikea because I had NO cabinet space. I found a spot for them in the kitchen here, too. I love Ikea so much!
That is located on the wall behind my island. It’s not as handy as it was in the apartment, where it was right by the stove. Oh well. It works.
I also use the two tall, skinny cabinets that surround my range hood for spices and such. They used to be a lot fuller, but I got sick of digging through things. So, I moved a bunch of stuff that I didn’t use regularly to the pantry. Now they’re pretty empty. I need to organize them a bit more. I hate trying to find stuff in the spice chaos.
Apparently I horde spices. I used to have cute little containers for them, and I kept them in alphabetical order. It turns out the containers weren’t air tight, and all the spices ended up caking. That sucked.
Hopefully these photos have quenched your curiosity, Kelli! The rest of you should make sure you check out her blog because she’s awesome.
