Oh! and while I'm thinking about it, see this post for a fun, edible Thanksgiving centerpiece tradition.
Before you don your aprons this Thanksgiving weekend and prepare to put even June Cleaver to shame, you might want to take just a few minutes and assemble a baking bin.
I got the idea from "Confessions of an Organized Homemaker". I keep this bin in a cabinet right under the spot on the kitchen counter where I use the stand mixer.
It has all the odds and ends in it (except for cookie cutters - they have their own bin) that I use for baking and mixing. It doesn't always look this tidy, because my toddler likes to 'bake' too. The bin is a dishpan that cost $1.50 at Wal-meh - there are some great things about that place, if you can overlook all the 'Made in China' tags.
In my pantry, I also have a baking shelf.
It is stocked with flour, sugars, oats, vanilla, baking soda, and just above it are the chocolate chips. Are you wondering why I keep those just out of reach of the littles?
