I was over at Sally's house this morning, packing up her perishables and non-perishables. Moving to another country means not taking any food stores so guess what I have now? Four boxes of corn starch, three boxes of baking soda, three different types of vanilla, three tins of baking cacao, three bags of unsweetened, flaked coconut, four tins of bread crumbs, I-don't-know-how-many boxes of gelatin, a cupboard FULL of an assortment of rice and lentils, new flavoured oils and vinegars I am anxious and curious to try, and I have barely scratched the surface. It did give me an opportunity to clean out "that" cupboard. You know the one - bags of bulk store flours, sugars, dried pulses, various and assorted boxes of mixes that went out of date five years ago - enough to fill one trash bag. Unfortunately, she held on to her bottle of gin. She may need it more than me by the end of today!
