Where Did All the Flours Go?

(and other things we say to ourselves when we move and everything we once owned and used has disappeared)

We have all been there- you move into a new home and cannot seem to find anything you swear you once owned. Here is are a few commonly lost (or purposely left) items.

Bacon Bin (threw out the old can, grease and all)

Baking/Roasting Mat (where in this mess, can it be?)

Birthday Candles (I’m sure someone’s birthday is soon.)

Bottle Opener (it’s with the wine cork)

Box Grater (probably thrown out since it was rusty & bent!)

Candles (a new scent will make our new house ours)

Cereal Bowls (Ugh! The kids want something to eat now)

Chopsticks (if I find them, it’s Chinese or Souci for dinner)

Cocktail Shaker (need one NOW!)

Coffee Scoop (I’ll need my coffee tomorrow morning!)

Corkscrew (I thank the spirits because it’s somewhere closeby)

Cutting Board (our old one is split, discolored & gross)

Dish Drying Mat (left the tattered old one behind)

Dish Towels (now that the dishes are washed, where is something to dry them?)

Party Picks (for the housewarming/birthday party)

Peeler (probably got thrown out with the carrot peels)
