|see above the cabinets...those are my new fancy storage jars.|
Every time I need a bean or grain this is what I had to deal with...
Lots and lots of little bags, nothing really labeled, and it's
possible likely, they've spilled before. I finally decided enough was enough and went out and bought some Ball Jars and Black Board paint. I had a plan!!
First we taped rectangle paint areas off. This was a totally worthless step! The paint went under the tape in spots and so I wound up just using my foam brush to get the edges. I didn't want/need/have-the-patience to try and get a perfect rectangle anyway so free-handing it wound up working for me.
Next we put 3 layers of paint on the jars.
They had to dry 4 hours in between each coat!!! Crazy but effective.
|Ok - if you have a "helper" the tape is useful. :)|
Then it was just a matter of filling them up and adding a label.
Yep, I'm now the picture of organization! :D
As for my meals yesterday...
Breakfast was a quick apple and almond butter & a BIG bowl of watermelon. Not much of a breakfast but I just wasn't very hungry and we were running late. Tomorrow I'll do better. :)
Lunch was a large salad of: Spinach, cooked Millet, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Sunflower Seeds & Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Dinner was roasted veggies, grilled cheese & "ice cream"...
|On the way back from MI last weekend we stopped and bought some cheese. :)|
|I like toppings on my Grilled cheese so I sauteed some onion, mushrooms & kale.|
|The Hub's was just basic bread & cheese - he's been sick the last 2 days and this was the first he's had something other than bananas or toast.|
Kai and I had 'Ezekiel 4:9 Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Sesame Bread', cheese, tomato & the saute topping.
|Roasted eggplant, zucchini & green beans with salt & apple cider vinegar.|
|My plate. :)|
|Dessert: Frozen banana, strawberries, spinach, cinnamon & chia seeds.|
