This is a classic hoarding habit of mine. Every day I try to find some thing to leave our house. I pulled these two pots out of a kitchen cupboard.
I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT I USED THEM FOR. BUT I WANT TO KEEP THEM!
When our boys were little, I went through a gourmet cooking stage to express my creativity while keeping them alive. I would save up and go to Sur La Table, back in the day when there was just the original shop at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. I do remember these pans were not cheap. They are plated in beautiful tin, made in France and have charming handles.
So I sent this picture to my friend bj, a long time foodie, asking what are these pans? She knew right away that they were Charlotte molds, used for a dessert with lady fingers around the edges and filled with goodness.
Even though I am not itching to make any Charlottes in the near future, I am going to hold onto these pans and use them some how. Maybe to organize something.
I’m okay with this de-cluttering backslide. I’ve learned there’s not a whole lot of logic involved in holding onto certain things. But I’m ready to open another cupboard, and see what can move on to a new home.
