laundry basket drawers... [Nov. 26th, 2010|08:50 pm]

 The installation of some 2x2s' in the kid's closet works well for holding standard laundry baskets as drawers for the kids. I'll need to get more baskets at some point, but they are fairly cheap. Kiyan was getting in the way so I'm taking a break before installing the other side. It did occur to me that if I left one laundry basket on the floor that I needed two fewer brackets on either side, which I did but left enough room to add them if I want to move the baskets a few inches off the floor later. 

This will move most of the clothing into the closet, which is nearly empty due to being former storage space and emptied as the kids used it as a climbing course. I don't know what we'll do with the current dressers, but if it means less of a mess i'm good.

On a culinary note, the steak is good. I'm learning how to cook the 1/2 inch steaks the right amount on a hot skillet on our stove. I'm used to very thin breakfast steaks. 

Marz found a 14 lb turkey thawed and ready for purchase at fifty cents a pound. It's now in our fridge waiting for me to make a brine tonight, and it will be cooked up on Sunday. I found some good information on brine here, which explained why my brine made the chicken salty but was good for the turkey (you brine chicken for a shorter time because they are smaller).
