One morning, faced with the task of planning my weekly menu, I had a bout of exasperation at the state of my kitchen cupboards…disorganization, and way too much stuff…lots of things I don’t use but bought for one particular recipe (that I ended up never making!) Good example…curry paste. I’ve had curry paste in my baking cupboard for a good 3 years. Me and curry paste parted amicably..at last. What started with a bottle of curry paste, ended with cleaned, straightened, organized, SIMPLICITY.
I love the results. It’s so much easier to cook and plan GOOD meals, and I like that the kids eat more of the meals, and less snack and junk food…since we are down to the bare minimum. We packed up a box of food for the local food pantry, and I told the kids, that except for necessities like milk and bread, we are going to use what we have till it’s gone.
