Finish Cleaning The Remaining Top Cupboards
Day 9: Don’t Forget The Ceiling and Light Fixture Cover Too
Wow, you have been so busy these past days. Cleaning cupboards and cooking. This Pantry Challenge for Beginners has been EMPOWERING!
However, it is time to push through and finish cleaning any remaining top cupboards that you haven’t touched yet. Perhaps you’ve already been cleaning an extra one or two this past week. If so, congratulations. And if you are caught up on them, before moving on to cleaning the lower cabinets, don’t forget the ceiling.
I don’t know whether you’ve been wiping the ceiling as you’ve been cleaning those top cupboards. But if you haven’t been, you should. Hopefully they are a washable type surface. Our kitchen ceiling tiles at some point in the past were painted by a semi-gloss paint. So glad it was. This certainly helps to wipe the cooking greases off of it.
While up there on the step ladder, take a minute and remove the cover from the ceiling light. Use some Windex and paper towels and give it a quick shine too. Clean your kitchen from the ceiling, lights and on down, will make it shine.
For those of you have been more energetic this week and have already accomplished this top cupboard concluding assignment—pat yourself on the back, and relax. Grab that cup of coffee, and maybe make some Easy Vanilla Flavored Coffee Cream, sip and enjoy.
Now What Is For Dinner?
Well, if like me, you are still working on cleaning the top cupboards, ceiling and light fixture, dinner should be simple. Why not make it a treat too. Pancakes are something that almost everyone is willing to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But as one of the goals of the Pantry Challenge is to search the pantry and be creative. Look at this—Canadian Pioneer Style Cornmeal Pancakes!
Serve with your favorite topping and a side of bacon or sausages, and your children will be asking for them every night.
These are so simple to make, no wonder pancakes of this type have been around for hundreds of years. And so good too. Now depending on whether you are Canadian or American will determine the type of Cornmeal you may choose to use. It appears that Canadians prefer the bright and sunny yellow Cornmeal. However, it is reported that our American cousins prefer the white variety of Cornmeal. No matter. Whichever Cornmeal you have in your cupboard, will do.
So what are you making for dinner tonight? And, hey, you, the eager beaver who finished cleaning the upper cupboards yesterday, are you making something a little more creative? If so, we’d love to hear about it. But even if you are taking a well deserved rest today and going with an easier dinner recipe, we’d love to hear about that too. Join the conversation.
