So now it's obvious why this is my "One Butt Kitchen". I dont' have a small backside, and there's not room for anyone else when mine is in here... now come with me as we take a little tour...
The new landing spot for the microwave. I couldn't use this corner counter anyway, except to stash JUNK (and my coffee pot... and my coffee cups, which are now nicely nestled IN THE CUPBOARD WHERE THEY BELONG!) Do you see a red towel? Yes, I refuse to accept the fact that my countertops are indeed ORANGE. I prefer red, and red gingham to be exact, but it's not my faul that the countertops refuse to cooperate.
A close inspection on top of the microwave (and strange cutting boards/sheets) reveals infiltrators! Argh! This is how my kitchen gets taken over - by kitchen pirates!! They snuck in during the night and were so surprised to see me that they fell over. I made them walk the plank.
Here's the shark tank where the pirates were eaten. Now that I think about it, these fish have a pretty interesting life. The get to see me all day out one side and the chickens out the other! I hope they never learn how to blog. We'd all be in trouble.
Ah, now you can see the eggs are still out - I have to make a trip OUTSIDE to take them to another fridge so I slacked off on that this morning. You can see the galvanized pots (thank you Ikea!) that I used to help control the FREAKISH PILE that was in this spot yesterday. And yes, that is an automatic soap dispenser... a must when your hands are covered in chicken whatever and you don't dare touch anything that you might use to prepare food someday.
So there you have it folks. Someday when my dream comes true I'll have a new kitchen with a costco sized pantry, new countertops, COMPLETELY different cupboards and a floor that hides bits of cereal from view. It will always have a big shiny sink, because that's where it all begins.
WAIT, WHAT IS THIS?!?! Dishes in the sink?? Oh yes, Mr Nice Guy was being NICE and brought me coconut cream pie late last night. Maybe that's what brought about the crazy blog... but either way just the fact that the plates made it into the sink (with water touching them!) brings a smile to my face... life is good.
Now send me those pictures!
