Step Into My Office...
Sometimes, it's nice to see where a person works. Here's where I do my best work:
My Army-issued kitchen. One of the nicer ones I've had so far in life.
Badly organized pantry. This is how it usually looks. You didn't catch me on a bad day. I just don't keep it organized.
The doors of my fridge & freezer
The inside of my fridge. Note the frugal items: half-consumed glass of milk, margarine tub that holds shredded cheese, monster jar of pickles.
My beloved Cutco knives. You can tell I use them a lot since half of them aren't in place! Bananas: ripest one on top so it's grabbed first. In the front: a bowl of fresh picked produce from the garden.
Dinner tonight: A test-run of some Buitoni Riserva pasta I'm serving at a FoodBuzz dinner party soon.
Where I spend most of my kitchen time. The dishwasher gets used twice a day. This is my favorite "station". Salad being prepped for dinner. Brita pitcher filtering nasty tap water.
Extra storage for all of my contraptions: one of my slow cookers, a deep fryer, waffle iron, rotisserie, mini prep, quesadilla maker, iron, cherry pitter, tortilla press, blender, air popper, and popsicle maker. Not all of my kitchen toys are here.
My two favorite kitchen appliances, hands down.
Lest you think my kitchen is so pretty and perfect, here is my cabinet.
My downstairs is all Americana decor. Lots of red white and blue everywhere.
So there you have it. That's where I do all my cooking...for now, at least. Until the Army moves us into another home with another kitchen and its own set of limitations and benefits. For now, I have to get going. My sister is visiting and I need to lay the smackdown on her in Scrabble.
