As soon as I saw this months random recipes challenge, I knew I had to take part. Set by Dom over at the fabulous Belleau Kitchen, we had to photograph our cupboards and ‘dare to bare’ the horrors within. I’ve risen to the challenge and below, are pictures of my two main ‘ingredients’ cupboards. These are supposedly for spices, seasoning and baking bits but there are also other things which have sneaked in over time.. tins of beans, marmite, rice.. these should strictly be elsewhere!
Dom asked us to tell you what our favourite ingredients are. For me, as you can see, I have lots of spices and herbs as we love curries and warming stews and casseroles in our house, really anything big and bold in flavour. I think currently my favourite item is my pot of Harissa mix. I’ve used it in sauces, as a rub and even as a marinade for chicken. Its got endless uses and the flavours are so evocative of somewhere warmer and sunnier than damp Leicestershire. Mine is from Spicentice – a local company to me who produce a lot of different spice mixes. I love their stuff and have quite a few in my cupboards!
Finally, as its a Sunday and grim outside, I was inspired to give my cupboards a good clean out. Look at them now!! Place your bets on how long this will last….
I will only show you one, the other was just TOO bad!
So, thanks Dom for inspiring me to look into those cupboards and have a good clean out! A job well done.
Over and Out!
