Tuesday morning, grade 9/10 Home Economics class. Today the girls were allowed to cook a recipe of their own choosing so it was very busy and very hot in the kitchen. We have 8 groups of 3, so 8 different recipes were made today and they were all YUM! How do I know? The sweet loves all gave me a plate of their finished meal - mediterranean tuna pizza, cottage pie, aussie meat pie, tofu patties...and more!
(So much for the March diet....LOL!)
Before the class I cleaned out the Home Ec pantry and threw out a number of 'out of date' items. A whole shelf of spices needed to be discarded but instead of tossing the jars I emptied just the spices themselves into the trash, then brought the jars home to clean.
I'm slowly working my way through the house with an eye to bringing order into every area, and I had a number of spices sitting in open packets that looked messy and in the way on my own pantry shelves.
So, I cleaned and sterilised the jars...
...pulled my French General labels & stickers book off the shelf...
....chose some pretty labels and wrote spice names on them...
...emptied all the spice packs into the waiting jars, then gently chided the filled and dressed spices to stand still so I could take their photo for you.
They were so excited in their new jars that they were strutting up and down the kitchen bench as though they were super models! I clapped my hands and gave them praise on their new attire, before christening them - The Spice Girls!
So without further ado, here they are.
Recycling is fun!
What have you been recycling?
