Kitchen issues

 

There are several kitchen issues I have been grappling with for years and I have never admitted to them. They are annoying and sometimes inexplicable.

The one is the baked on, seemingly grease based material found on top of the toaster. It gets baked on and you literally have to scrub it off. I don’t get it, we don’t put bread in the toaster with jam and butter already on it. I could understand, perhaps, if we still had that raisin bread with the icing on the top, that was deadly!

The other is the cleaning of crumbs off the countertop, table, and even the floor. How is it that you carefully go about the task, only to find out that when you are done, that you missed something?

Still another is that you are sure you have all the ingredients for something, then at the last minute you don’t have the item you needed most.

Often, I shall be in the kitchen and find out, after a major spill, that the paper towels are out.

Then there is my personal mental block about how many pints in a quart, how many quarts in a gallon…why can’t we just convert to the metric system?

Such is life. There are several kitchen issues I have been grappling with for years and I have never admitted to them. They are annoying and sometimes inexplicable.
