Today was spice cupboard sort and clean day. Woot! I tell ya, the fun never ends here. Actually, I like doing this. It's a job that appeals to the categorizing mania side of me. You know what I mean - all you people who photograph and catalogue your entire stash on Ravelry. You know who you are.
Out come all those grubby, half full jars for a wipe down and a refill. Torn labels get repaired. Inventory gets taken. Then the cupboard get a thorough scrub down before everything goes back. Nice and shiny. Very satisfying. Tomorrow, I'm off to the bulk store to fill my shopping list.
One advantage to having a grasp on the spice cupboard is that it made it easier to prepare this evening's dinner: Lobhia aur khumbi or Black-eyed Beans with Mushrooms from Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cookery. It's served with yoghurt cucumber relish. Mmm...sublime.
