My brilliant kitchen has only been here for a couple of years, and so is still pretty shiny and new to me.
Given that this is the case, you'd think that there was a limited amount of stuff that I'd built up, but every now and again I find a cake tin that hasn't seen action since the kitchen was installed; and the number of times I move the dust covered pasta maker to one side to reach something else...
I coupled the thought that I ought to to have a sort out with the idea of going through the cookery books I'd accumulated, and then what about the jars and packets that might be out of date; and before I knew it I had a Challenge on my hands!
Taking everything out of each cupboard in turn, I separated the contents into 'keep' and 'chuck'; wiped the cupboard down, inside and out, and put all the 'keeps' back in.
I learned some interesting facts about sell by dates - I can understand herbs and spices loosing there potency over time, but really, rice with a sell by date?
There's a pile of recipe books and (the more presentable) tins for the charity shop, and a clean, neat and tidy kitchen that I can be proud of once again!
So that's my week 23 Challenge: done!
