Cluttering up my kitchen

This morning I decided to reorganize my kitchen.
I spend so many hours in there, that I thought it would be nice to have my “tools” where I need them, rather than neatly tucked away in cabinets and drawers. Normally I’m all for decluttering, but this time I actually did the opposite.

I have this huge old dining table in the middle of the room, which serves as the main work area. And since it is really huge, I decided that I could use some of that space for the tools I use on a regular basis. It may sound as a poor decision, but in reality I don’t use that many different tools, so it really wasn’t that much space I needed. I thought about it and ended up with a couple of wooden spoons, my favorite knifes, a bundle of measuring spoons​​​​​​​​​, a scissor, a small strainer, a mortar and pestle, 2 different peelers, a can opener and a few more items.

No more running around opening cabinets with fingers smudged in tomato sauce, trying to get that one bowl out without getting tomato sauce on everything.

In order to try my new setup, I made a sourdough bread from rye and wholegrain spelt, tried my hands on some Almond milk, which is going to be in my morning smoothie tomorrow, and finally for dinner, spiced mashed potatoes with celeriac and pickled beetroot.

And I’m happy to report that my new cluttered kitchen works perfectly.
