I’ve always enjoyed reading the In My Kitchen posts that Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial is kind enough to host every month but have never had a blog ready in time to post one of my own. But this month I was able to get my photos & post ready to join in – I hope you enjoy.
This is the week that I have to pack up everything in my kitchen cabinets for the demolition to begin next Monday. I’ve got four different piles of boxes:
1. Things I rarely use that will get stored in the attic
2. Things that really have always belonged in the basement but have made their way up to the kitchen
3. Usable things that others might want which will go to the shed at the dump
4. Critical things that I’ll need over the next month for cooking in the microwave or grill
Look what I found as I cleaned out my cabinets – this was from my mother’s house and is a pie tin from the Table Talk Pie company, started in Worcester, MA in the 1950’s. That was before everything was disposable so when you bought a pie you would pay the deposit. This is one of the originals with a 5 cent deposit. When you returned the pie tin you got your deposit back. Although this is a full size pie plate, they were known for their 4″ lunchbox size pies.
This stack of measuring cups were a gift from my very thoughtful daughter, Niki and are being carefully packed away until the kitchen is complete. I will have a glass front cabinet where this will be displayed.
