Last night after the kids were in bed I ran a few errands. Let's just say I had to ask a grocery store manager when they were closing, because I was concerned I might be the last customer keeping them open. I had a list, some new recipes, and by the end a full cart. This morning I cleared out a whole shelf that's down low to dedicate to one purpose....
Then I cleaned the kitchen, including organizing some more cupboards--particularly the spice cupboard--and have a sparkling area just waiting to get messy..
...Because tomorrow the kids and I start our "pre-holiday" baking. Oh yeah. This is where we try out the new recipes and brush up on old ones of all the things we want to bake for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And this year it will be particularly sweet because for the first time I have my own kitchen that is big enough to accommodate all of us cooking together. Yay!
Recipes and Pictures coming soon....and if you live by me, let me know if you want some of the bounty cuz we do NOT need to eat it all.
