Many moons ago when I packed my 1980's Ford Meteor and officially moved out of home, I was gifted with many plastic fantastic of the food storage variety. Tupperware of all different shapes and sizes to see me through cheap university lunches and dinners, into work life when I expanded my cooking repertoire and then into early parenthood when the baby food was made in bulk and frozen in all sorts of said tupperware. Slowly as the years have progressed lids were lost, the plastic cracked or lost it's shape. Many an invite to the dreaded "tupperware" party have been turned down in an attempt not to replace plastic with more plastic. Instead, I've been drawn to glass. All different shapes and sizes. Recycling jars for further use, or searching in discount stores or kitchen ware departments. A lazy afternoon crafting some labels. Enjoying the sounds of the glass lids chinking, the earthy colours of whole foods that I love cooking for my family. The aesthetic appeal of the beauty of glass bringing a small smile each time I open up the doors. Packets discarded, filling the pantry with simplicity.
How do you organise your pantry?
Oh - I almost forgot...The Weetbix Giveaway winner has been announced (sorry for my tardiness in getting around that one!)
