A Kitchen Meme

In the kitchen with...Jenny (someone's in the kitchen with Jenn-nee, someone's in the kitchen I know oh oh, someone's in the kitchen with Jenn-nee, strummin' on the old banjo...") Sorry, Sarah Louise made me do it...

Variety is the spice of life.
In my cupboard, I have this many spices: Wow, thirty. ish.
Rack or no rack? I have a rack for like eight of them.
Alphabetize? Sorry, no.
Which spice do you use most often? Pepper. Exotic, eh?
Which recipe? Currently? BLT Dip.

It's like the pot calling the kettle black.
Coffee or tea? Neither. Unless it's iced tea.
Do you make coffee at home? No, the husband does but he says I make it too strong.
If you make tea, loose or in bags? Instant. Iced.
How many kinds of tea do you have? Two and one is yucky.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
I use my stovetop: as a counter. (It's gas and it so totally IS a fire hazard.) I've only set one paper plate on fire so far. I have a yankee candle on there too. Actually I don't keep too much stuff on there...the dog can reach any food I might put on the back burner.
I use my oven: All fall and winter. Much less in the spring and basically not at all in the summer. This too is a fire hazard. In our first apartment we had little cabinet space and I kept the wooden cutting board in the oven. Brilliant idea, no? No. I preheated the oven and sometime later smoke was pouring out of the kitchen and my husband opened the oven door to find a red, blistering (literally), about to combust cutting board. Oops.

Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?
Soy or cow? Cow, have never even tried soy.
Skim or whole? Skim.
How many gallons a week? The whole family? Um, threeish.

Three items in my freezer (right now):
  1. Frozen Waffles
  2. Chicken Thighs
  3. Tortellini

Three things in my fridge (right now):
  1. Milk
  2. Easter Eggs
  3. Pastrami

Item I am most chagrined about: Just how empty or filled with almost empty containers my fridge is. Food shopping with the kids during school vacation? Ugh.

Item I bet no one else has: Muffalata spread. Or some expired Ceflex (my doctor's don't regularly prescribe anitbiotics so I'm hoarding what they did give us.)

Mmmmmm pastrami ....

Amy said...

muffalata spread?! What in the world is that?! Um..I've never tried pastrami...I suddenly feel like such an outcast.

Jennifer said...

I have maybe 4 spices.. if that!

Sarah Louise said...

Although I have tried pastrami, I have no clue what muffalata spread is...

thanks for playing...
