|We have two pots and two pans, and four hooks. Perfect!|
|This is where we keep all our non-produce food (spices, coffee, grains, oil, cups plates, appliances.|
|Our cooking tools|
|The sink. I've since made a curtain to cover the doors, as they're very very old, so there's no easy fix to make them look nice.|
|Our deep freeze and fridge. The fridge is in what used to be a space for a coal stove (there's a chimney behind it in the living room). A cool nook, if underused right now.|
Blender (used a lot for smoothies and soups)
Coffee Grinder (most people don't need this one)
[meat/yoghurt thermometer- very useful for making marscapone, steak, yoghurt]
Appliances we're doing without for the first time:
Of these, the only appliance that would be really nice to have is a slow cooker/crockpot.
Stuff to cook with:
We have just 5 hooks, and on them 5 cooking/baking utensils
Whole wheat and white bread flour
(occasionally arborio rice)
flaxseed (called linseed in SA)
Coffee (instant and beans)
Black pepper and other spices
What we need is always shifting, but so far sanity has been keeping things to a minimum, since we don't really have cupboards. What do you consider essential?
Jo - I have a girlfriend in Baltimore who hung a chain link gate on her kitchen wall and, using S-hooks, hung pots and pans and ladles and anything with a loop or handle on it. Inspired, we once borrowed the idea and used a piece of cut-to-size chainlink fencing. It's an AWESOME - and attractively hippy chic, I think - way to get things out of your way and on the wall. It works very well on dry wall. We're still trying to figure out how to adapt it to plaster. Le sigh.
that sounds like an awesome idea! We love hanging stuff and having things as in-sight as possible.
