Hi FitFeat friends!
It’s been a busy week so far for me – how about you? I noted on my Facebook page today that it’s been a LOOOONG time since I’ve had to write out homework papers! 8 pages took me forever! Needless to say all that writing, plus recipe adapting (and creating and testing) this week has taken priority over my blogging schedule!
However, one of the recipes I adapted turned out so well that I’ll definitely have something to share with you on that soon! (Let’s see what kind of grade I get on it from school first, LOL!). It’s Indian-inspired and tastes like heaven. I even impressed myself with this one.
In FitFeat Kitchen news….
I have a new place to start storing all of my spices now and had to show you! How about that “S”? For SHARI? For SPICE? (For SILLY???)
If you are familiar with the most recent “Food Network Star” Aarti, she was a food blogger before she was a TV personality. And in one of her posts, she shows a great spice wall that her husband and uncle made for her birthday. That wall inspired us to do something similar only not quite as large.
We’ve had this empty wall next to our refrigerator with a spot where a wall-mount telephone can be installed (which we don’t need) so we’ve just had a painted cover on it.
We figured that would be a perfect spot to hang some stainless steel for our own spice wall. MSP is so handy.
And the best thing about the little jars we found at the outlet store (beside a price that was 50% less than Bed Bath and Beyond, and beside the cool see-through lid) is the fact that I still have the ability to sprinkle! (A feature I thought I would lose!)
And even pour!
Now I just need to get busy getting them filled. I’m waiting until I know what I want to put in them (and for when have time to make some pretty labels. Maybe this weekend…) There is a lovely spice shop called Savory Spice that has 4 locations, one of which is right around the corner from my school (and we even get a culinary student discount there – BONUS!). I haven’t gone in just yet, out of fear of wanting to take home the whole store. When I need ONE specific spice, I’ll go then. With CASH only. Preferably a $5 bill. Wallet with credit/debit cards must stay in the car…
