Beating a dead horse

Just so you don't think we keep our kitchen uncluttered, here's the reality. Once the appliances were back in place, we repopulated the space with our stuff. Lots of utensils, pans, and other things hanging from the racks. It's a jungle in there. And yes, we use it all.

The reality of the kitchen. I have plans to re-do it all. Later.

I'm very happy, so far, with the new dishwasher. It is quieter and, because it's new, it looks a lot cleaner. The interior configuration is different, so we're working on figuring out the best way to load it. We should all have such problems, n'est-ce pas ?

UPDATE: By the way, this is proof that Ken and I don't coordinate with each other before we blog. I took this photo and wrote this post on Friday afternoon, then scheduled it to publish this morning. When I looked at Ken's blog this morning, I noticed that he wrote the same post, albeit with more than one photo. But his first one is pretty much the same as this one.


  1. Abondance de biens ne nuit pas!

  2. But it’s such a beautiful dead horse.

  3. The longer you are together the more you think alike.

  4. Your kitchen is pristine compared to mine!!!

  5. Haaaa! I thought I had just re-clicked the link to Ken's post, when I arrived at yours.
    Still-- wonderful view of the kitchen. See my comment on Ken's post :)

  6. As I commented on Ken’s blog, please don’t replace your kitchen floor, I’ve always loved it!

  7. Actually, I really like the way your kitchen looks. I love all the pans and utensils hanging on the wall. It looks like a well-used, 'gezellige' kitchen (gezellig being one of those allegedly untranslatable words, basically ' cosy'). A kitchen that you come home to and where you hang around, maybe enjoying a drink, while cooking, talking about the day's events.

  8. GMTA as they say in internet world: Great Minds Think Alike.
    I, too, like that kitchen floor, and the entire space.

  9. chm, Americans are always saying that you CAN have too much of a good thing. Must be their puritanical roots. ;)

    mitch, hmmmm...

    joanna, hehe! True.

    sillygirl, well, we just cleaned everything. Wait a month. ;)

    judy, I know!

    bettyann, we like it too. No plans to change it.

    elgee, we do spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

    emm, :)

  10. A place for everything and everything in its place - and easily to hand. Looks like a pretty efficient set-up all round!

  11. Your kitchen puts my sloppy one to shame.


Tell me what you think!
