Between silly_lilly moving back to Trinidad and me moving into reveilles' house, reveilles and I spent most of the weekend lugging boxes around between various houses, the Post Office, and the Salvation Army. Although I'm not moving in to reveilles' house until August 14th, it is nice to have made a dent in moving my things over.

Since reveilles is housesitting, most of the kitchen cabinets were filled with things owned by the house owner. She told us that we could move anything out of the kitchen that we wanted to. So, on Sunday, reveilles and I went through almost every cabinet in the kitchen. There were at least 5 packages of confectioners' sugar (all opened, each in a different cabinet), 3 packages of saran wrap, and 5 packages of aluminum foil. There was a cabinet that had at least 30 pint-sized plastic containers and 3 lids. Of course, we managed to find room for my 12+ cookie tins (which I manage to fill up at Christmas with homemade cookies).

We made pizza for dinner last night. We topped it with sautéed mushrooms, shrimp, scallops, and cheddar cheese. We used a pizza stone my mother gave us to cook it on and the crust came up wonderfully crisp.

No tin is not aluminum. Tin is tin. :) Sn on the periodic table. Aluminium is the British variation on aluminum.

The pizza WAS excellent!

And while you did buy the confectioner's sugar for making truffles (which you make very well), I don't feel so bad about tossing yours accidentally because I don't think you're going to make any between now and 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Of course, you might surprise us...

That makes me feel a little better, but still doesn't explain the 30+ pint-sized plastic containers with 3 lids. What did you think of the book?

I feel like I've finally moved into the kitchen. Now I know what is in 90% of the storage space in there!

It used to be dusty boxes, old gadgets and doo-dads. I actually found this little tiny jar (with the lid, it stands about two inches high), which was SEALED with a little plastic bit of airtight saran wrap under the cap. I thought, "Ooh! Maybe some fascinating little trinket!" and when I picked it up it was full of...quarters.

Why would someone want to store quarters in a tiny airtight container?

We kept finding quarters secreted in the strangest places.

And these ancient braided rugs...none of which are terribly attractive-looking. They're everywhere. We even found a really small useless-sized one hidden underneath a bed.

You need to store quarters in airtight containers because the quarter gnomes who steal loose change when you aren't looking can't open sealed containers. The quarter gnomes are related to the sock gnomes who steal socks out of the dryer.
