First off, I bought an Oxo mixing bowl in white, metal, and with a black rubber base from TJ Maxx. They had three sizes, but I don't like the small ones much; they were too small. My bowls definitely need replacing; they're 4 years old and white plastic. I'm sure they're toxic by this point.
I also went for a blue Rubbermaid rubber spatula from Tuesday Morning.
Remember when I brought home 50+ baby food jars from work? I bought this baby food jar holder for $7 at Tuesday Morning. I had seen the holder before but didn't have baby food jars for it. The holder's cavities are larger than the teeny jars I own, which means you can have slightly larger jars if necessary.
Too bad it only holds 12 jars - not enough for all my spices but maybe a little too much for just my baking spices. I decided to go make this white one hold my baking spices:
- pumpkin pie spice
- pink Himalayan sea salt
- threads of saffron
- poppy seeds
- cream of tartar? I remember using this for a baking project, but it's not a popular one
- anise seeds, which I need to purchase
I'm going to buy another holder. I don't know if I want another white one or a blue one (blue like the spatula). I'll ask my roommate for his opinion later, but that will consist of cooking spices:
- garlic powder
- chipotle chili powder
- curry powder
After buying the first baby food jar holder, I cleaned out 12 baby food jars. Garden vegetable looks puke green by the way.
Now I just need a way to label them. I thought about getting stickers, putting them on, and spraying the jars to make them frosted before removing the stickers. My roommate thinks labels may make the jars easier to read. I think he's right. Now to find labels, or make my own.
