Yes. But now the kitchen is in a reasonable facsimile of organization and I can see the bottom of my tote. As I've mentioned before, when sewing, the cooking generally slides and vice versa. So it goes with re-organizing and blogging. I've been replacing mismatched chipped china with mismatched non-chipped pottery. The old hippie self is re-emerging, evident in lots of earthenware scoured from junk shops. Yesterday, I found a magnificent almost black charger for back of the oven - a few weeks earlier it was the chocolate and taffy crimp-edged piece from Nova Scotia. Organizing the baking drawer has been harder. How many tube pans does Decadent Housewife need? Really.
What about the times a recipe needs to be split or doubled or quadrupled?...or I try a new recipe and the regular pans don't work?...those odd shaped or extra bundt pans picked up at the junk shops have worked...sometimes baking an old favourite in a different pan breathes new life into the recipe...look what happened with this year's Christmas cake - different recipe - these pans came to the rescue...what if I decide to make fudge again?
So, I confess, I simply piled it all back into the drawer.
Bad housewife. Bad blogger.
