I have slowly been changing things around in my kitchen because I love it and want to spend all my time in there and once took a day off of work to make chili.
These things are absolutely essential to my kitchen-related happiness:
- Mason jars of various sizes for dry goods, nuts, etc.
I’ve also used a half-pint mason jar to make a shaker for this delicious popcorn seasoning recipe I took from the Seventh Day Adventist Church (http://lads.t1005.com/popcorn.asp). Just take a screwdriver (or knife) and a hammer and violently poke holes in the lid of the jar.
- A lazy susan reserved for hot sauce.
- A sweet spice rack, preferably an imperfect one that you’ve made yourself.
Or you can just buy a magnetic spice rack. I had fun making one, but the difference in cost is negligible.
- A good collection of rarely-used cookbooks, making sure to have a few funny ones
- A stuffed animal of unknown origin sitting on a shelf reserved for alcohol
I’m sure there’s more but I’ll stop there for now.
Love love love this post.More details on the magnetic spice board construction? Supplier of your raw materials?
-Sheet metal from home depot (I forgot what gauge)-4 oz Square Metal Tins w/ Clear View Tops from SKS (http://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/SearchIndexMetal.html)-I hot glued ProMAG 3/4" Round Magnets (from Amazon) to the back of the tins, but I would suggest getting larger and/or stronger magnets. I had to glue two magnets to some of the tins because they kept sliding down-R.S.V.P. 96-Piece Spice Label Set (from Amazon)
final question…was it all Prime?
Usually it’s Prime or nothing for me, but the magnets weren’t available through Prime at the time (they are now). Labels were Prime.
