Kitchen Makeovers- Inspired by Julia Child's Pegboard


An organized kitchen is an inviting kitchen, not only for the "chef" of the house but for anyone who ventures into one of the most used spaces in the home.
 
Julia Child, in all her graceful, culinary splendor, understood the importance of an organized kitchen.  Julia Child used pegboard to keep her kitchen accessible as well as efficient.  If it worked for the renowned and beloved Julia Child, then it would work for me.
 
I have installed Bullet Board metal pegboard in my pantry.  And now it is easier than ever to locate my favorite pots, pans, and cooking utensils. And since installing my Bullet Board metal pegboard, I find it much easier to locate items in my cabinets that I don't use as often since they are much less crowded.

 
Julia Child has inspired millions of people and she inspired me to fall in love with my kitchen, all over again.
 
Now I look forward to spending time in my kitchen preparing my favorite meals, such as my Sesame Noodle recipe, shown below.


 Sesame Noodles
12 ounces, fluid Thin Noodles, Cooked And Drained
¼ cups Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Sugar
4 cloves Garlic, Minced
2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
3 Tablespoons Pure Sesame Oil
1 teaspoons Hot Chili Oil (more if you like it hot)
2 Tablespoons Hot Water
4 whole Green Onions, Sliced Thin (chives would work, too)
(This recipe is a modified version of the Simple Sesame Noodles recipe by the Pioneer Women.)

 
Whisk all ingredients (except noodles and green onions) in a bowl.
Pour sauce over warm noodles and toss.
Sprinkle with green onions and toss.
Serve in a bowl with chopsticks.

  1. I love the idea or getting the pots and pans out of the cabinet. Mine are all stacked on top of each other and hard to get to. The noodles look wonderful, I plan to try them soon.
