My Pantry

I'm not going to arrange my pantry like a crazy. I'm not going to lie to you and make things fancy for the photos! This is the condition of my pantry, and I bet yours is pretty damn close.

I thought I’d make one of these, because I think it’s super important that you have a properly stocked pantry. If you’re new to cooking or think you dislike it, this will make it easier, and fun! Or something!

and in the interest of awesomeosity, I’m going to look for the best stock photos ever.

Super Simple White Sangria

OH ho ho ho.

 

I’m baaaaack!

 

Sorry for the long time away, I had rent and a damage deposit for a new place come out on the same cheque, so I’ve been a little tight on cash. Which generally means I’m eating beans n’ rice. But all is well and I can have my sangria and drink it tooo!

Can you guess what day it was?

What a gorgeous day for a $4.75 beer! $4.25? I don't remember, doesn't matter!

We headed down to Belgian Fries today!

Gin and Lavender

Gin and Lavender

I’ve had this idea for quite some time. I find that the Lavender flavour of Dry Soda, tastes similar to tonic. So I thought it’d go great with Gin.

Jalapeno Vodka pt3?

 

Look how green it's gotten!

 

 

Remember that jalapeno vodka we made a while back?

 

 

Part 1 and Part 2.

 

 

 

We never actually finished it. We also never took the jalapenos out and have left it in the fridge since. We wanted to try it one last time.

Jalapeno Infused Vodka pt1

I think I see something in there..

I was inspired today. Have I ever mentioned the problem with being a foodie that works for a gourmet food/equipment store? The endless, expensive, inspiration.

 

Today I was putting some beautiful glass bottles into the system.

My Jello Americans – Thanks for the mail!

Loving Spoonfulls!

I read a lot of food blogs. And I mean a LOT. I love food. I love reading about it. There are a few blogs I really like, and one of them is My Jello Americans.

 

They have some great ideas and some really weird jello shots.  Fun to look at and inspiring. One day they had a post to join their mailing list to receive random stuff. Loving random things, I decided to send my address and see what happened. I didn’t expect anything from it, I think I even forgot about it.

 

Until Michael called me saying I got some mail. He said I received a donkey. “Yeah, a donkey, a salt and pepper shaker.”

My immediate reaction was “wtf?” but I soon found out that it had come from the lovely ladies at My Jello Americans.  So in return, here’s my homage to My Jello Americans, or.. “My Jello Canadians”.

 

Asian spoon jello shot, easy delivery! And my donkey friend, recently named Hernanez.

Goodie Goodie Gum drops.

And my favourite, the "F*** it lets just eat it with a spoon."
