Old Mother Hubbard Has A Bare Cupboard
Our church, The Chapel East Valley moved into a new building. We recently attended our first potluck and when I packed my food to take I did so thinking our new kitchen was stocked with the basics. Wrong. The cupboards are totally bare. Nada, zip, empty! Good thing I had taken lots of plastic sliverware to leave in the kitchen but have you ever tried to serve homemade ice-cream with a tiny plastic spoon?
Well, being Thrifty Thursday you probably know where I am going with this post. The new but empty church kitchen has become my baby - my challenge to make into a fully stocked working kitchen. Being the queen of thrifting I am excited about having a legitimate wonderful reason to get to go thrift shopping. I even have Precious Husband's blessing on this. I am always seeing wonderful kitchen things for sale and at a good price so off I went this last Tuesday with my mental list in hand.
Unfortunately this week turned up nothing for the church kitchen BUT I found a wonderful vintage cake and pie carrier in mint condition. I have wanted one forever! Won't this be fun to take to the next potluck!
Also found 2 of my Anchor Hocking banana split dishes to add to my collection. Planning on making more homemade ice-cream for our Sunshine Acres get-together next week and thought I would use the dishes for banana splits.
Yes-siree, lots more thrifting will be happening in the future to get that kitchen in order but I really must concentrate on the church kitchen and not my own : )
