This is how some of us process the anxiety of watching the President of the United States incite insurgency and sedition…we organize our spice cabinet.
Because of how and where we store spices (a pull out shelf in our pantry) we have to pull out spice after spice looking for the one we want. (First world problems, am I right?) I’ve tried to buy spices with the labels on the lid, but the ones I’ve found are expensive and we can’t find all the spices we use regularly. Jeffrey found a do-it-yourself spice jar kit on line so we purchased a set of 25 spice jars and labels and it was delivered two days ago. Today, I transferred all of our spices into the new jars. The kit comes with a pretty big assortment of spice label stickers for the lids, but it doesn’t have everything. Fortunately, it also comes with blank labels and a white marker so we can create our own labels. (Note the “Everything Bagel” and “White Pepper” spice jars.). It will be so great to be able to see what spice is what by looking at the lid.
I love this so much, I’ve already ordered another set of jars so all our spices will match (can you say anal retentive?) and we’ll have extras for when we inevitably buy different spices.
Now, if only I could learn to cook.
