I thought I would show you some of the shelves in my pantry.
My spices are alphabetized. Yes that sounds nuts but I have too many and cannot find them otherwise!
I have a bazillion oils and vinegars and sauces.
It is out of control. LOL.
Yes. I regularly clear them out!!! I love fresh spices and herbs but sometimes dried is the only option.
I grow rosemary, 3 kinds of basil, oregano, cilantro, spring onions, and thyme in my herb garden each year. My rosemary has survived so far this winter!
