So next, I tackle the other disappearing cabinet - the one above the oven. Sad to say, I have 4 crockpots. Don't know how I managed that. Found several items that immediately went into my garage sale pile, including a blender and a Krups expresso maker - if you need one, I'll sell it to you for $10. And I finally made space for my pasta pot. My humongous, wonderful pasta pot, that makes all pasta easy, because it has holes in the lid and the handles clamp down, so you just pick it up from the stove and take it over to the sink and turn the pot upside down, and all the pastaey water comes out the holes - no need for a separate drainer. Absolutely lovely. Though I am in a dilemma over it - I would eventually like to get rid of my Teflon non-stick pots and pans - you know - all the research about the fumes and killing birds and stuff - but I turn on the vent whenever I use it, which will just have to do, because I'm not giving up my pasta pot.
So the rest of my pots and pans are in the dishwasher - waiting for me to decide where they are going to go in my pots and pans drawer - waiting for me to give them a home with my scotch tape, permanent marker labeling technique.
