So I cleaned out my cleaning and vase cupboard on Thursday. If I do nothing else, I won't be bothered as this was a major job that had to be done, as it's a bit like the freezer; things go in there never to be seen again!!!
All the things out of the cupboard:
Cupboard washed out and everything put back in:
Now if the amount of cleaning products is anything to go by, I should have the cleanest house around.......I wonder what has happened? Will say I was pleased to find two pairs of brand new rubber gloves which I didn't know about.
This week's Home of the Week is mine, if I ever had $5 million!!! It's not very often I actually love a house, but I love this one. I could move in without doing anything much to it, other than probably painting the little girls room some other colour than Barbie pink!! Will say I am surprised they didn't stick a swimming pool in the back yard, as that is something you would expect to have at that price range? Overall though, it's great, even down to the movie theatre in the basement; and I don't watch movies that often!!
Now the Condo of the Week, is a whole different ball game. It's not a bad condo, I have seen a lot worse, and the price is reasonable for downtown Toronto, it's just the location. I think sketchy would be a polite way of putting it, and I wouldn't want to wander around there after dark. However this article tells you about the good and the bad of the area and it's an interesting read. Back to the condo though, there is something missing for me, it feels too stark and urban, but then you're buying and living in an urban area, so that's what you get. Just not for me.
Maggie asked about freezing bananas yesterday. All I do is throw over ripe bananas in the freezer, skin on and use them in banana bread/muffins. Just pull them out of the freezer and let them defrost a bit and the skin comes right off, just like it does with frozen whole tomatoes.
Christine asked about the freezer list. It's an Excel Spreadsheet that I save on my computer. You could do it as easy in Word, just make a couple of tables and fill them in. I find Excel easier, although we have just updated our software to Microsoft 2010 and I am still finding my way around it.
Pat, I went and deleted your comment, sorry. You were asking about cream cheese, I agree it is not as good after it has been frozen, but when you're mixing it in with something else I don't find it an issue.
And finally, if anyone has any bright ideas what else to do with over ripe bananas other than banana bread, I am all ears!!!!
