I'm doing another purge of my kitchen items. Going from two 9x13's to one, getting rid of a set of 4 baking dishes and lids I never use, a giant metal bowl I only use for pizza dough but that I can use my other bowls for, salad spinner, butter dish, flour sifter, brownie pan, and some odds and ends utensils. Trying to get down to the real bare minimums.
I got stuck deciding between my crockpot and my grandmother's old 12 qt steel pot with lid. Frankly, I rarely use either but in the last six months I have used the crockpot to make beans probably 4 times, and the steel pot to make chili once. I have grand visions of using one or the other to prepare big batches of things to freeze, but it's just not realistically how I cook. Although, once I get things pared down more, maybe I would? Thoughts?
I'm also getting rid of my 8 cookbooks. I have a file folder of printed out recipes I'm trying to decide if I should put them in a binder of recycle them and try to just use them off the computer now that I have a laptop again. I'd love to hear peoples recipe solutions.
