Nothing makes me happier than neat & organized spaces (just ask my poor fiance, who puts up with my
very psychotic OCD). Since a large portion of my free time this week has been dedicated to organizing our kitchen, here are some of my kitchen happinesses (and yes, a lot of them have to do with organizing!).
A bowl of limes brighten up our counter top
I have been looking for baskets like these forever (to hold things like potatoes & onions) but everywhere I found them they cost $30..a piece! No thank you! So imagine my happiness in finding them at a dollar store at the much more reasonable price of $6 (I’m still puzzled by things in a dollar store always costing more than a dollar….anyone else with me on this?!)
Nicoise salad (lettuce,tuna,hard-boiled eggs, tomatoes, green beans, steamed potatoes & Dijon vinaigrette) for a late night simple yet delicious supper
Wine bottles & stoppers recycled to display our most frequently used vinegars and oils
A little green (fresh basil) to brighten up the concrete jungle we live in
Our china cabinet-turned-bar has safely made its 3rd move and is all set up and ready for cocktails & company.
