Thank You Mr. Wonderful
In our American Homestead, we cook ~ a lot.
And when we cook we like to spice it up. When
we travel we find dishes we like and then buy
spices in the local markets so we can recreate
the dishes at home. All of this is great, except
where do you put everything? We had a "spice
cabinet" that had a few lazy susans but it would
take so long to find everything it was not efficient.
I made a little sketch of a simple spice rack
that would fit perfectly on an unused wall
of my kitchen and my Wonderful built it for
me. Then it sat empty for over a year while
I searched for the right containers. I could
have gone with tins but didn't like the look
of them, jars needed to have a large enough
opening to fit a tablespoon measure inside.
Finally I found just what I wanted and then
the label problem came up. I wanted to be
able to make my own and they had to be
coated so they could be wiped off...
I'm happy to report that problem was solved
and I have been filling up spice jars in the
evenings as I watch tv. And now it is done!
The jars are in alphabetical order, I can easily
see when I'm out of something. If you look
above, I need to get some chili powder.
There is another thing to scratch off the "to
do" list ~ yeah! Looking at it makes me happy.
Now to cook...
