We talked a bit about our space yesterday in the workshop.
Kitchen space that is.
I thought I would share some highlights of my space.
First, let me say, I am very fortunate and grateful to
be able to do my thing in this kitchen.
I have lived in many apartments with rickety appliances
and below average counter space.
So, in this season of my life, I am happy
to say I have a wonderful kitchen in which
to nourish family and friends.
It was completely gut renovated about 9 years ago.
Enjoy the tour..
Shelving space in the island provides a home for cookbooks.
Incidentally, I am just bringing them back out of hiding since this used to happen...
Why yes, that is a "bikini" onsie she's wearing.
I forgot all about that outfit.
I try to keep as many items in the pantry in glass jars.
Some things stay in their original packaging as long
as they can stand on their own.
I hate having bags of things piled up and hard to find.
I recently added that under shelf storage for
potatoes, onions, garlic, and ginger.
It. is. priceless.
You may also notice the little white board on the door.
I use it to make my grocery lists.
As soon as I run out of something it goes on the board.
When I don't have time to transfer the list onto
paper I just snap a pic with my phone and,
whammo, instant list.
This is the message center.
You can read about that here.
It's not usually this clean.
But in a perfect world it would look like
this all the time.
Oh, how you've provided sweet sweet cabinet
space for more kitchen gadgetry.
More about how this came to be here.
I like to keep the mixer out because I'm more
compelled to use it if it's in front of me.
Even the filtered water has a little space of it's own.
Here's a wide shot of the whole room.
You can see the corner of the skylight which provides
amazing natural light.
So that's our kitchen.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
And, just for fun, here was yesterday's lunch
A wrap crafted from all the little leftover
produce scraps that were
hanging around my fridge.
Shredded red cabbage, a handful of spinach,
half an avocado, micro greens,
a few slices of apple
( a delightful addition I might add),
and a couple of sliced cherry tomatoes.
