Carmi's theme this week over at WrittenInc is Kitchen.
This kitchen is always waterfront. You have to be creative though because you're working with two very unpredictable burners, a toaster oven and a grill. And one outlet. I almost caught the curtains on fire one night, standing out looking at the stars. Boat+fire? Not good! But really, how much brains does it take to know to move the oven AWAY from the window??? We've also had the wind pick the meat up off the grill!
This second photograph shows the hardest part of my kitchen to keep clean: the front and sides of the refrigerator, where I am constantly putting up photographs of people I love and quote magnets. I never get tired of looking at either.
I've been in the kitchen most of the day today. I sent some food to my brother who is taking care of his in-laws while his wife and daughter are with his son-in-law in the hospital, and to my dad who is still trying to pick up some speed after a recent surgery. I also found some good collard greens and tomatoes at the garden store so the kitchen has that collard green smell. Most people don't like it but to me it smells like something good to eat! And so, off to dinner. From my kitchen. Where we're always casual and laid back. Nice.
