This is one of those 'As-Seen-on-TV' swivel spice racks and it really works great. I had to arrange it so that it sits in the center of the cabinet.
This way there is enough space for it to be pulled out and swiveled to the left or right.
I have also thrown out old spice bottles, washed out empty jars and refilled them from packages. I labeled them with the German and English name for each. The rack holds 20 bottles and I tried to choose only those spices that I use constantly and now they are arranged alphabetically. Let's see how long that will last. But it looks great and I feel great about it too.
For dinner I made a big pot of lentil soup, added some Louisiana HotLinks, a perfect meal for a cold day.
And today, Sunday started out great. After a nice long walk with the dogs, breathing in all that clear fresh cold air after a rainy day, I made myself a big breakfast and enjoyed a nice hot pot of coffee. Scrambled eggwhites, topped with sprinkles of cheese and chives. Cut up fruit of strawberries, kiwi and banana. Coffee beans were given to me by one of M's friends: Guatemala Antigua (cocoa and soft spice) from Starbucks, tastes pretty good.
And my task now? Sort through a big stack of magazines and see if there is a recipe that I can keep.
