Before you try and play 'spot the difference' too much I must point out that things have been added from the boxes that used to lurk in the conservatory after our move and the cupboards have been tidied. I will try and keep the cupboards as they are for future photo comparisons, but I do seem to move things around a lot, and I am also trying to minimise the amount of cupboards we have that are actually used for food storage. So as soon as a space becomes available in this one I seem to fill it from somewhere else ... does anyone else do this or am I alone in this sad habit of 'food Tetris'?
I've noticed the food in the cupboards seems to be going down so slowly, not that this is something I should worry about but it does highlight that -
1. I have huge stocks of some things
2. I eat quite simply most days
3. I really don't need to replace some things as some of them to have been bought 'on a whim' and then never used up or indeed used at all.
I'm really moving towards a simple and more natural way of eating with just having large stocks of dried goods,. rice, pasta, cous cous etc that can be eaten with sauces and homegrown veggies and fruits.
I am finding that I watch television food adverts with amazement these days as they try to push us towards eating cakes for breakfast (muffins), eating biscuits for breakfast (biscuit bars), instant foods for lunch (just pour on hot water and it's ready) and I am quite sorrowful, yes really sorrowful, that we seem unable to want to spend more than twenty minutes in the kitchen to make a meal for ourselves or our families.
I think what it is, is that I am falling out with 'fast food', I've decided I like my food slow sometimes and as the world gets faster and faster I am calling time and jumping off the bandwagon..
