Whats in your cupboard?

Whats in your kitchen cupboard?

So day one was arriving very soon and my menu for the week ahead was all set. So off to the kitchen cupboard I went. Ok, so first impression’s were not good. Sugar and lots of varieties, well when you bake you have to have at least 20 different types as you never know what you will need and I do like to have all bases covered. So operation ‘move out’ had started.

I had my rice shelf, my pasta shelf, all had to go, well be moved to another cupboard that was not in eye line, couldn’t bear to throw food out, however if you think that you will need to really start from scratch, I am sure there are plenty of your friends you could give your food to. Then to my phone to make my new updated shopping list. You could spend a fortune on all the fancy foods you think you might need. My suggestion would be to work out as I did your menu for the week ahead and gauge your shopping list on this.

My kitchen cupboard now has a lot less in it, but all the essential ingredients to make or contribute to meals. See my basics below.
