The Consequence of Kitchen Snobbery

When it comes to kitchens, I am very particular about what I like. 
I have learned I am not a fan of the L kitchen. 

The corridor plan drives me absolutely bonkers!

I think the perfect kitchen layout is the U.

You can be nice and cozy with everything around you, easy to see.  It makes cooking happier, and I think it makes for a brighter kitchen.  All the kitchens I have had in any other layout have been dark and dreary!

The kitchen I have currently is an L.  Annoying.  As I cleaned last night, I was irked with how little counter space I had.  I decided to do something about it.  Earlier that evening Jeffrey had joked about the microwave being used only for a clock.  It was funny because it was true.  Thinking back on that conversation, I decided to toss out the microwave.

Before you call me crazy, we are in a trial run right now.  We basically only used it to heat up water for hot cocoa, but a tea pot works better for that.  I am currently rejoicing in the amount of counter space I now have for cooking.  I think the kitchen looks a lot brighter and airier (see yesterday's photos).

We did have leftovers for dinner tonight, but it was so easy to toss them into a frying pan and heat them up on the stove.  I just stirred a lot, and it really wasn't a big deal.  I think I may be sold. 

Other happiness was the fact that it didn't get above 75* in my house all day today, and it wasn't even above 70* until around 4:00 P.M.  Talk about the perfect weather.  We spent a good chunk of the day in the coolness of the shade tree watching the afternoon lazily stretch into evening.  Books, sunshine, cool breezes and a perfectly blue sky are ingredients for the most lovely afternoon ever had.
