I got a new kitchen a few months back, HA put it in - but am finding it has a lot less storage space.
Thats annoying, though a new kitchen on the HA (health authority?) is great! My extra space comes from having a four burner hob and oven, not a 5 burner, plus having the chimney knocked out and a pair of steels put in the ceiling to hold the house up :mrgreen: Plus a proper kitchen cupboard, not a vertical CD rack :lol: to hold my tins.
Going to eat down the stash this summer then fill up again before 31st Oct and the BBBBB word that I won't type cos am sick of it :mrgreen:
It's unbearable, isn't it! This week, I've been trying out the frozen foods that I defrosted and dehydrated - some seem to be fine, but others weren't dehydrated enough, and there's a little clump of mould, so I threw the whole (half litre box) out. Good lesson on what to do for the future. Plus I've just checked the sizing of my new sink, and its as I thought - big enough to take my dehydrator shelves, a quick soak and a quick wash, and they're done - finding something big enough to soak them in had been a bit of an issue :shock:

Better finding mould now rather than when the shops are shut.
HA=Housing Association. We get the choice of colours and finishes and handles and also get floor vinyl and splashbacks so it's worth a slight reduction in cupboard space. Our HA is very good.

Actually it could prove a useful deterrent should the hoards come knocking... ;-)

:lol:

Take it you have the older ionisation alarms fitted they are very sensitive and prone to false alarms when cooking... (Easy to check open and look for the radiation symbol on the little black sensor

There a Verity if newer units that are a bit more complex and monitor air temperature and smoke particles far less susceptible to cooking smoke..

Gave a dutch oven another reproofing after a wee overnighter last weekend, had to give it a bit of a scrape to shift some ingrained 'crud' so thought I'd play it safe. Other than that, been pretty quiet, a bit of dehydrating, a bit of organising gear, nothing too rock n roll.
