It's the second day of Hari Raya. Yay!!! So. I am pottering in the house doing some much needed spring cleaning. Lately, due to me spending my Saturdays at work, my housekeeping took a backseat. And I am not happy.
It was chaos in the pantry. All my things here, there and everywhere. I hate that. I cannot stand disorder. It drives me mad but I have been living with it for many months. So let's take a look at what I found while rummaging through the mess.
Cookies! No, I don't eat these. It was for a cheesecake base but that cheesecake has not seen the light of day. Tsk!
These dried cherries and cranberries are leftovers from Chinese New Year. They are still good. I guess I should bake some cookies to use them up.
Hershey's chocolate chips. Still unopened. I bought these before Chinese New Year with the intention of baking loads of choc chip cookies. But no, nothing happened here.
Ah! Perfect for those depressing days. Actually I bought this for making Tiramisu.
Eh, I still have this.
Expired! No Tiramisu then. Tsk!!
Found some contraband. hee...hee...hee....
Oh dear. What are these for?
Look at the expiry dates. This is really bad.
My spices. Threw out a packet of fenugreek that expired in December 2015.
And oh, let me show you my stash of cupcake liners.
I'm a sucker for these. I buy them just because they are pretty. Have you seen me baking cupcakes or muffins lately? Noh........
And how about these? Cookie canisters. Again a purchase just before Chinese New Year when I thought I would be baking loads of cookies.
I wanted to bake buns. No motivation. Tsk!
Lunch. Leftovers from yesterday's dinner with added vegetables. Eaten straight from the pot. Less washing up.
Now that everything is in order, I feel good. It's time to sit back and relax.
