As I am now on summer holidays until September, I have a looooong lists of 'jobs' to get done. Unfortunately the glorious weather and the very urgent need to get out in it, eg walking Alfie, pottering at the allotment, any other excuse, has taken priority and those jobs seem to be being put off whilst the list gets longer. Yesterday was cooler, so I decided to tackle the pantry. As I don't have a proper kitchen yet, things tend to get dumped in there and I was losing track of what stores I have amongst the 'stuff'. Time for action! So I got stuck in and eventually got in done. Despite an accident with an open bottle of soy sauce being knocked off the top shelf, it wasn't as bad as I thought. Everything is still in date (not that I take much notice of best before dates) and I have discovered lots of goodies that I had forgotten about. Here are the before and after pictures. I actually have another four shelves of cookbooks elsewhere (can you see a theme around me and my books?) and kitchen equipment is stored in the cupboard under the stairs at the moment.
