Assignment: Restock Ingredients
Let's reflect: your refrigerator and freezer have no moldy food and both are completely clean, right? Are your cupboards and drawers organized and grime-free? No more rancid oils, spoiled condiments, extra wooden spoons, useless uni-tasker gadgets and never-used appliances? Good. Then you're ready to move on.
This assignment involves ingredients. Some people have a budget and are doing this Cure so that they cook more, so this assignment includes a shopping trip. These are folks who might not even have a canister of flour or a bottle of olive oil. Others were faced with a cupboard full of expired spices and baking ingredients and want to replenish. Or, maybe you don't want to spend any money—that's ok. There are other ways to work with your ingredients.
