Welcome to the Kitchen

Hi everyone.  I’ve poked my head in here a few times as a guest contributor, but now I’m being promoted to series regular!  There were a lot of worthy applicants for this position, but I used my romantic involvement with the boss to make sure I was chosen.  Some might call this unscrupulous, but I say you do what you have to do to get ahead in this business.  Anyway, I envision that my role here will be to try some new recipes and see how they work out, then type up the recipe along with some amusing anecdotes about my experience with it.  It will be almost as fun as watching a DVD with the commentary turned on!


Unfortunately, due to the fact that we were away for awhile, I haven’t had time to try out any new recipes.  Yes, I know we’ve been back for four days already and I don’t technically have a “real job”, but I have things to do.  DON’T JUDGE ME, INTERNET!!  In lieu of posting a recipe today, I thought I’d take you on a little tour of the kitchen so you can see “where the magic happens”.  As an added bonus, you won’t have to call in to some crappy radio station or do anything untoward with a security guard to get this backstage pass.  You’re welcome.


So here is a picture of our kitchen.  You can tell that I cleaned up for your arrival because there aren’t any dishes haphazardly scattered about, and most of the stains have been wiped off the countertops.  Mmm, sanitation!

Here you will notice the dishwasher.  We are often not on speaking terms due to its proclivity to leave a film of food particles on our glasses.  This brings me back to my earlier point about sanitation.

Here are our cabinets.  We store many important and interesting things in here, but you can’t see them.

Things are starting to get a bit spicy.  We should probably move on before this becomes NSFW.

Here is our refrigerator.  As you can see, it is well stocked.  I think there’s a tumbleweed rolling around in the crisper drawer.  Also, that milk in the back?  It’s been there for almost two weeks, and I think it’s getting a little ornery.

And lastly, the pantry.  A marvel of organization!  A place for everything, and everything in its place!  So orderly and well laid out!  But I won’t let Beth reorganize it because then I wouldn’t be able to find anything anymore.

So there you have it.  I hope this brief tour has been educational and entertaining.  At least now you know what our kitchen looks like.  And knowing is half the battle.
