As a person who doesn't have a "real" kitchen (It's a corner of my glorified efficiency/garret), this meme will make me look like the opposite of Martha Stewart. Folks like Kiki, Blackbird, and Babelbabe will look like queens.
In the kitchen with...Sarah Louise (humming "I'll be working on the railroad" is an important part of this meme, you know, "in the kitchen with Dinah...")
Variety is the spice of life.
In my cupboard, I have this many spices: Six.
Rack or no rack? You're kidding, right?
Alphabetize? Have you met me?
Which spice do you use most often? Dry mustard.
Which recipe? (to be posted at the bottom of meme) Sarah Louise's Strata. It's a spin-off from a recipe in The kitchen survival guide by Lora Brody.
It's like the pot calling the kettle black.
Coffee or tea? Tea
Do you make coffee at home? Um, I have coffee in tea-like bags circa 1995. They are waaay in the back. I think I should throw them out...
If you make tea, loose or in bags? Tea bags.
How many kinds of tea do you have? At least three. Raspberry, Regular, and Lady Grey.
If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
I use my stovetop: as a counter. (It's electric, so it's not really a fire hazard.)
I use my oven: once every couple of months, to make SL's Strata.
Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?
Soy or cow? Cow. I tried soy and eeuu, gross!
Skim or whole? Skim.
How many gallons a week? One half.
There's nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself. (James Lee Burke)
Three items in my freezer (right now):
- Ice pack.
- Hot Pockets.
- Baking soda.
Three things in my fridge (right now):
- 2 containers with 1 serving soup each.
- leftovers from Lilly's Easter with her fam.
- Noxcema (for sunburn)
Item I am most chagrined about: expired milk (1 half gallon, 1 gallon.)
Item I bet noone else has: Autocrat Coffee Syrup (it's a Rhode Island thing--you put it in your milk. Coffee milk, yum!) (But mine is really old, so if anyone has a Rhode Island connection, email me!!)
It's a wrap! I hope Blackbird likes my new meme, and yinz also! Feel free to change the quotes.
I'm not much of a cook, but my take-out skills are top-notch (Kathy Shaksan): a link to the recipe for Sarah Louise's Strata.
My humble humble kitchen. Note how my microwave matches my cabinets. And yes, that's all the cabinets I have.
