My kitchen island that is!
I love my kitchen...
Well I love it when its clean.
The rest of the time it is my nemesis. The one room (along with the laundry room) that no matter how hard I try, no matter how many times I swear it will stay clean...it just doesn't...ever.
I have an oversize island in the middle of the kitchen. It is where I do all my baking and all the cooking. It is also seems to be a catchall...
I would never ever let my lovely island get this cluttered...not me!
Of course I am not the only one that uses the island...its not all my fault!
This is not me...I am neither that young or that lovely. No this is my oldest son's sweet friend Jo. She is frying up bacon to go into clam chowder. She and son went clam digging and come home with a HUGE amount of clams.
Notice...she is reading the recipe off of her I-Phone! That makes her at least 100% cooler than I ever hope to be!
Notice...the microwave oven says 9:17. That is pm! They are making clam chowder at 9:17 at night.
Notice...I am a vegan, my kitchen is frying bacon and cooking clams. Ughhh it will never smell the same! I actually had to make cinnamon rolls and lentil stew the next day to get out the smell!
My son the chef...under the close supervision of my handsome hubby. Who cannot believe that they are making clam chowder at that hour of the evening!
Then again he can't believe that I use the island as a paint booth...
Or a potting shed...which I of course would not do. Those things are not what kitchen islands are intended for!
And while I may complain loudly at times about the view of the island. I cannot complain about the view from the island!
