If there were only a way for me to always be the Chef, creating and stirring and whipping up something really tasty without also having to be the scullery maid afterwards, I sure would enjoy being in the kitchen more.
In this new eating world of Paleo, there are many recipes I’d love to try. However, in my 80’s era kitchen with narrow counter tops and a double sink I’d love to rip out for one lovely deep basin, the thought of cooking becomes less than appealing. I will say, the new stove and fridge have boosted my desire to be in the kitchen a bit, but the rest of it?…. phooey!
And then I think… I should be grateful I have a kitchen. I have a place to cook nutritious foods. I have a way to store them. I have utensils and gadgets and electricity and running water. I should be thankful. I am. I am very thankful I have all these things. But in the words of Queen, “I want it all, and I want it NOW!”
Now that I’ve been in my new home for 1.5 years, I’m ready to upgrade the kitchen. I don’t really see that I’ll be doing this unless I also upgrade/convert the basement wet bar/kitchen as well. I know… I know… first world problems….let me wallow. I’ll vacillate back to being thankful soon enough.
