Goodbye, last English muffin (which was really a crumpet, if we’re being honest, except that I ate it like an English muffin). I had less than half a block of tofu left over from making vegan mac’n'cheese, so I had a good ol’ fashioned tofu-and-green-veg… thing. I just make it; I don’t name it.
Anyway, a while back, I decided I was going to do a video tour of my house, just as soon as the entire house was cleaned. This was in January, and I’d like to say that I have cleaned my entire house in that time (oh, I’m sure I have), but more often than not, there’s one ‘problem’ room. The guest room, usually. So I decided to do the tour one room/area at a time, which is probably a good thing, as I managed to blab on about the kitchen for almost eleven minutes.
Things I meant to mention in the video and didn’t:
– I’ve been progressing nicely in sounding more Minnesotan/Canadian. Also, it bugs me when I talk about the spices I use most ‘offen’, as I almost always pronounce the t.
– Notice the fancy tile edging by the microwave/bookshelf. And when I say ‘fancy tile edging’, what I really mean is ‘complete lack of tile edging’. Who was in charge of that project? Previous home owners are baffling.
– I actually got the hutch for my NINTH grade graduation, which was when we went from junior high to senior high, in my district.
– There’s a ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ poster inside the garbage closet. I ordered that a few years ago, back when they were JUST starting to get trendy (there was really only one on-line seller of the reproductions), and it came to me all banged up. I hung it in there last year, I think, and then got that little one in the corner. I think it’s funny that there are two.
– The piece of paper covering half the calendar on the fridge is a list of the food in the fridge/freezer/cupboards. I made it when I was trying to use up all the fake meats and breads and things, so I could base meals off what I had. Mainly I just like crossing things off when they’re gone.
– There’s a thing on the cooking/spices cupboard door. It’s a strip of corkboard tile that I covered in fabric and stuck on with double-sided sticky squares. I use it to pin up printed-out recipes.
