Blog Break

I feel like taking a bit of a break from the blog world. I'm sure I'll be back, maybe in a few days or maybe not for weeks. No reason why really. I just got instagram though (yes I'm so behind on those social networking things) so you can add me on there if you want (my username is eatmedelicious).

Hope you all had a hoppy Easter!! :)

Oh also I've been on a bit of an organizational spree. I'm slowly working my way through our place and cleaning things up, decluttering, etc. I was going to save these photos until I'd done more but I'll just share them now. This is our pantry. It could probably be a bit better organized but I'm really happy with it and super happy to have everything off the floor. I still need some more containers. I finally found a big enough container for my all purpose flour (not pictured).

My next kitchen organizational tasks are my spice rack, to get more shelving for my cupboards, and more shelving for the pantry (on an unpictured wall).

Before



After




I like keeping things in these containers which I can easily pull out to find things. Top right has legumes and grains, top left has canned/bottled goods, next shelf is dried fruit and nuts and grains, below that are oils and vinegars.




Check out the cute apron my mom made me! Top shelf is snack food, then crackers and pasta, then baking stuff & plastic wrap, then flours/sugars in containers.

First of all boo to you not blogging ;) I have to admit, it's nice to take a break from editing photos and thinking of something to write from time to time.
Secondly, wow! You're much more organized the I am. I really need to get myself some more containers.
Lastly, I nominated you for a versatile blogger award, which you can read about here: http://cookbookaficionado.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/newfoundland-toutons/.
Enjoy your time off!

Nice pantry cleanup--those tupperware faux-drawers are a great idea. Have a good blog break!

Aww I'll miss you lady, but sometimes we need a breather every once in a while. Your organizational skills far surpass mine. If you ever want to come declutter my apartment...I mean..."come visit"...you are SO welcome to!

I'll wait patiently for your blog return... no rush! I just bought 40 spice jars from Bulk Barn... on sale, so they were only $13. Score!! :) Moving forces me to do that decluttering and reorganization thing... yucko! :P

Yes, I'll miss you too!
Your pantry is amazing - don't you love it? We have sort of a bedroom closet across from our kitchen we use as a pantry, I don't know what we would do without it!
And GREAT work on the organizing!! You deserve at least a 30 minute back rub for that effort.

Wahhh, I'll miss you too!

Pantry looks awesome though. I need to get some of those nice containers for flour etc, are they from Ikea?

Jealous of the pantry! It looks great; amazing how kitchens can get so disorganized, so fast.

Enjoy your break!

How will I survive without Abby photos??
But I completely understand, take your well-earned break and return when in the proper mood to.
I'll patiently wait :)
Thanks for all the wonderful posts up to now!

Just stopping by to let you know you're missed. I look forward to your return whenever that is. Enjoy!
