while writing about the food related parts of the kitchen in that post, i decided to go through my recipes to see if i could get two tins of recipes combined into one. yay! i don't know why i didn't think of this before. i was just saying that i never pick the right box first when looking for a recipe. :) i don't actually use these recipes very often, so i don't need a ton of them. i don't really need measurements for a lot of recipes... often i'm just looking for inspiration. i have a little moleskine notebook that i was able to combine much of this content into. some recipes were discarded, because they don't fit the way i cook presently. simple, fresh, zero-waste and of course, healthy are my priorities. pinterest holds some recipes/inspiration now too. one of the best parts of working on this project was being reminded of some old favorites...and finding a few recipes i'd like to test. i was able to fit all the of the remaining recipes into one box, and should probably sort them again in time.
a second project i tackled this week was going through my kitchen towels and washcloths. i found a couple of each to add to the rag pile. the towels were cut in half and hemmed (i've not hemmed in the past and would rather not deal with the fraying edge in the future). the washcloths were marked with a bit of ribbon, so that it is clear which are rags ( i really don't want to wash dishes with a rag that has cleaned, well, certain parts of other rooms, ahem). :) i'm going to see how i feel about getting by with the towels that are left. i may keep my eye out for a new towel by an independent designer...fun.
what projects are you tackling in this fresh new year?
