Variety is the Spice of Life!
YouCopia 18-Bottle Original SpiceStack, Silver Spice Organizer/Rack looks really useful, and it would solve my problems spice wise, but I haven't got the spare spondulicks at the moment, so I needed a similar solution for the total cost of nothing.
Enter a plastic set of drawers I had used for card and sticker storage in the past. With a little pattern making, alphabetising and an investment in some new spices (ground spices lose their pungency after a while and some of my spices were getting on), my spice drawers are ready and waiting for me to make..... sausage paella using cumin and turmeric, a good-sounding apple cake with allspice, pasta sauces a plenty with Italian herbs and many, many more dishes enhanced with a sprinkle of crushed chillies or smooth, smoked sweet paprika. It's right there, next to the cooker and prep surface. Convenient and easy!
Can't wait!! (it's a shame we're having Sainsbury's pizza for tea tonight; eh well, there's always tomorrow!)
