Does your pantry need a fluff and puff? Is your laundry soap jar, tired and dreary looking? Fear no more! Have I got the perfect thing for those Monday morning blahs.
On a recent pop in, to a local craft store, I found these really nifty chalkboard stickers. As you can guess, I am finding all sorts of uses for them. My need to make the pantry look inviting, orderly, saucy. Yes, I make my own laundry soap. Less nasty chemicals, less expensive, works really, really well. Gluten free flour in a jar, done! Himalayan salt in a jar with a sassy label, done! So cute, so functional. Just charming.
Here’s the thing about saying good-bye to gluten. You miss it. There, I said it. I miss a bowl full of piping hot spaghetti with home-made sauce and a black iron skillet full of sautéed mushrooms (sorry friend who hates the vile things) to toss liberally over the whole mountain of goodness. Enter Quinoa pasta. Really good flavor, I mean really good and you cook it just as you would any other pasta. Hello bowl of Sunday night spaghetti. I’ve missed you.
