#3 of #365 – A (Nearly) Organised Herb Drawer makes for Happy Cooks
January 21, 2011 2 Comments
Today’s job completed. One herbs n spices drawer cleaned and tidied: all jars wiped, relabeled, refilled where necessary, rinsed and reused where necessary.
The OXO tin got a clean. I think (hangs head in shame) it has never been cleaned before. It’s older than any of my children. It felt – furry. No – like suede. So that had a soak and a scrub.
Plus I know I said I relabeled / labeled everything and I can hear you, there in the back, muttering What about that one, huh? That cork top with no label, top left-hand corner? THAT hasn’t got a label!
Well, that’s because that jar is older than any of my children, except Daughter. 24 years of oil from hands = no surface adhesion for labels.
And I finished just in time for Youngest to make Thai Red Curry with Salmon. Made the sauce from fresh, skinned the salmon fillets, made coconut rice. Yummy – that child has come a long way from the Oh, just open a can of beans!
