Triple-S food project #1

Trivets made, sent, and waiting to be received!  Next project: SPRING CLEANING!

I don't know about everyone else, but in my cupboards/fridge/freezer/random places around the kitchen, there are foods that I have hoarded, but NEVER use.  For example: jello, tuna, dried cannelloni, salt cod, and dried beans, just to name a few. You know what I'm talking about...the foods that you shove aside to get to the Israeli couscous, the pint of Ben and Jerry's, the canned corn (is this strange?  I love canned corn. Don't tell me if it's strange. I'm not going to change.).

Anyways, I propose that we do a group kitchen spring clean and get rid of these long forgotten goodies. Since I suspect that spring will hit in full force in a couple of weeks, let's try and get some pictures and recipes of spring-cleaned food on here. I'm going to set myself a goal of 2 of these foods out of my life in the next week, and I challenge everyone to do the same!

Happy Spring cleaning!


  1. I want to see you come up with a recipe that uses both the jello and the dried beans. I feel that you are up to the challenge.

  2. Thanks, Jess. Our living room light is perfect for photos mid-day.

    Maria - I'm surprised you didn't want salt cod in that too!!

  3. @ Maria:

    Okay, so this is a BIT of a stretch, but:

    No agar? Just use jello! ;-)

  4. (+) salt cod on the side? The possibilities are endless!

  5. Hmmm, that's a pretty traditional chinese dessert! Not sure I've ever tried it with strawberry jello though.

  6. Haha--well, I posted it as more of a joke, but now I'm intrigued... I suspect the taste may not be affected as much as the texture though.
