What is CVS, if I may ask?

happy ... Great idea! I need to look at the Sunday paper ads again to see if there is anything that we will be needing. I glanced quickly once and didn't see too much. But, before I toss the ads out this morning, I better check again.

It is not even 6AM and it is a Sunday. I wake up make coffee, turn on the computer and it looks like I missed breakfast and that lunch and dinner plans are being made.

Good morning Princess......and a good morning to all of our kitchen gang. I'll be awake as soon as I have my first cup of coffee.

Vietnamese Cinnamon is more powerful than the cinnamon that you normally buy and can be substituted for cinnamon in anything that you want a cinnamon flavour - ie cinnamon rolls. (Too many "cinnamon"s in one sentence. LOL)

Espresso powder is used to enhanse chocolate flavour. Any chocolate recipe, try adding half teaspoon or a full teaspoon (depending upon the amount of batter) to begin with until you know how much you prefer.

Clear Jel is a thickening agent - often used in pies where you don't want a flour flavour nor the runny problem associated with corn starch.

Does that help at all?

OK gals ... I'm going to go ahead and open the new room so that it will be in place. We only have about 8 posts to go and this room will be closed. We can continue here for the remaining posts and then we will need to relocate to the new "Kindle Kitchen" thread.

ETA: The new thread has been posted ... :-)

At this rate, I'll need a refrigerator for KA products......I can see how that conversation will Anyone want to come help me explain this one???

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 27, 2013 5:45:43 AM PST
I'm thinking spreadsheet with dates opened/ordered, location,etc so I know when to toss if not used up. A spreadsheet, I can carry with me on the phone so I know what I have at the grocery store, etc. as well as when I'm placing a KA order. But I WILL have to have the discipline to keep it updated. I'm not good on that part.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 27, 2013 5:44:50 AM PST
happy ... Yes, I have been reading the bottle information closely after opening some of the flavorings and some say that they must be refrigerated after opening.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 27, 2013 5:43:36 AM PST
happy ... I just looked in the drawer where I have put the Clear Jel, Vietnamese Cinnamon, etc., and standing looking at it and wondering what recipe I ordered these for, and I even have a jar of Espresso power and bottles of extract flavorings, too. What do we do?

Well darn it...I didn't realize that the flavorings needed refrigeration too.......

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 27, 2013 5:41:06 AM PST
Vickie ... I'm thinking spreadsheets, too. I didn't want to mention this at first, because some people don't like to mess with spread sheets. But, I'm beginning to think that this might be our answer for right now. And, now that you have brought up spices ... another thing that I've got to get organized, too. I don't know how many spices that I have, but I can tell you that right now I have a decorator wooden rack on the wall over my stove, 3 shelves in one kitchen cupboard, and now starting putting some in a drawer.

Another problem I can see coming soon is the bottle of flavorings like the Fiori Di Sicilia, Lemon Oil, etc., that need to be refrigerated after opening. And, I keep my KA yeast and container in the fridge, too. So, now need to figure out a way to keep these KA items together and organized in the refrigerator.

Girls...I think we may need an intervention! I have a KA order coming tomorrow, an ammy order coming Tues. and like princess, I have ingredients everywhere!
I'm going to think about this too. Example: I ordered Clear Jel, I know I saw a recipe that called for it, I have no clue what that recipe is now. The stuff will be arriving tomorrow and I'll put it someplace until I come across the recipe that needs it. Then, I will have no clue where I put the clear jel. There has to be a better way. I hope to have some time on my hands while hubby is away to spend on this very problem.
I think I'm in way over my head!

Thanks Princess and HappyKindler. I'm glad that I'm not the only one that feels totally disorganized. The only thing that I can think of is a spread sheet, like I do with my spices. (I found out that I have over 60 different spices!!) If anyone comes up with a better method, I'm listening.

happy and Vickie ... Well, not a good way at this ole' house. And, as each KA order arrives, I get more confused. But, I did sit yesterday and think that I had to come up with a madness on keeping track of the recipes and the things that I've ordered for what. Now, that you have brought this issue up, I'm going to give this some serious thought as to a madness to keep track of what and for what. Right now, I've been good at getting containers and labeling, but very poor at remembering what I've got and where I've placed them. Some things in the kitchen, some in drawers, some in the pantry ... oh, there must be a way!

And, my next KA order will arrive on the 29th. Oh, my what does one do?

A similar thing is beginning here with the different bags and rolls for our FoodSaver. I'm needing to make space for this, too. I did get the hanger I told you about for rolls, but now have 4 boxes of zipper bags, and the 2 boxes of the liquid block seal bags coming on Tuesday. Also, the vacuum containers and the adaptor and hoses. Geez ... this is beginning to make my head spin this morning.

ETA: Oh, and soon the Wraptastics (2 of them) will be arriving and will be needing a resting place.

Thanks Princess. I'm checking them out now. I can see more reading material coming. :)

princess...sounds like your weather today will be mine tomorrow..after Jeff leaves this afternoon I will be making a grocery run to pick up a few things as I doubt seriously I will venture out in our expected ice storm tomorrow.

I actually prefer sauce the next day..same with chili, stew and the like. I think your dinner for this evening sounds very good. I have no idea what I'll be having.

Posted on Jan 27, 2013 5:02:10 AM PST
I'm getting confused with all these special flours and flavourings, etc that I'm getting from KA and other sources. I'm thinking of setting up a spreadsheet so I know what I have on hand. Does anyone have any other suggestions to keep track of the different flours, etc?

I'll have to mark that Greek bread on my to do list. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure your spaghetti sauce will taste better sitting the extra time so it'll be better tonight.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 27, 2013 4:43:59 AM PST
happy ... Thanks for checking. Now, I know that it wasn't just me having problems.

Posted on Jan 27, 2013 4:42:37 AM PST
I just took Mollie out and it has started to rain and freeze. We are supposed to have ice this morning and again later tonight. Not looking forward to the dreary day. Since I baked the Greek bread yesterday, I doubt if I will be baking again today. The Greek bread was very good. Nice crust and very moist with a beautiful texture. I will definitely make again. Right now, I will be keeping an eye out to watch for the time to post the new "Kitchen" thread when we reach 10,000.

Later today, I will try to begin setting up my rotary cutting mats, pressing fabrics and begin cutting. Once I start, this could take several hours to make all the cuts required. I have 12 different fabrics that I will be working with, so lots of cutting to be done.

I made my spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage yesterday, but when evening came, I decided to have for dinner tonight. I got tired and wasn't very hungry last night. Glad that this is done and I have my dinner for tonight already fixed for tonight.
