I really like being in the kitchen. Especially if there isn’t a three year old trying to pull my trousers down or negotiate his way up into the treat cupboard. Likewise for my husband – not for trying to pull my trousers down but for peering over my shoulder to see what’s cooking.
I like my hour in the kitchen from 6-7pm with a recipe book when husband is home early enough to do the bath, book and bed routine. I profess this on regular occasions which husband takes to mean that he needn’t ever cook. I suppose I’ve only got myself to blame for that.
We bought the house on the condition that we could knock the kitchen wall through to the lounge/dining room to make it open plan. We took a huge section out giving a big hatch and breakfast bar space, meaning I can cook and still chat to friends at the dinner table, see bear playing or curse at the mess in the remainder of the house whilst I stir the dinner.
This is my entry for The Gallery. I’ve had an awful attendance rate recently, so it’s good to be back. Do go and nosey at other people’s culinary spaces.
