Favorite Friday

Sydney and I were working on our favorite Friday breakfast (buckwheat pancakes with a mashed banana mixed in to cut through the buckwheat flavor!) when I realized what favorite I had to share with you today!
This rotating tray holds my most used kitchen essentials - extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper, italian seasoning, Montreal Steak seasoning (by McCormick) and the standard salt and pepper shakers. I actually got it for free, another reason why it's a favorite probably!
Last fall when we were at my in-laws house my MIL was cleaning her house and had a huge pile of stuff she was planning to donate. Of course, I dug through it and found this tray. It went with a set of serving dishes that fit on top. Not sure why I didn't nab those...maybe she was missing one of them. I can't remember. Anyway, I knew this would be a very useful treasure! And I was right. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't use it, and it has kept my spice cabinet neat and tidy since I no longer have to dig around in there for the items I use everyday.
Hope you all have a great weekend planned! We are experiencing (HOPEFULLY) our last cold streak around here, so we will be hanging low at home patiently waiting for spring.

We tried the buckwheat pancake mix and couldnt tolerate it. I would have never thought of mashed bananas. Thanks for the tip!

I have never tried that kind of pancake... love the lazy susan on the counter - great idea! I'm going to be looking for a small one now at yard sales and thrift shops!

my spice cupboard could use one of those. it's deadly right never know what is going to fall on your head when you are rummaging through. (I wish I were kidding!)

hopefully, HOPEFULLY this is the last cold snap. I am not-so-patiently waiting for spring.
