A Woman's Work Is Never Done

Since you saw what Ed does most of the time in yesterday's photo, today I will show you the result of some of my work - the dinner dishes.
I've always enjoyed the cooking part much more than the cleaning up part. I'm like a cyclone in the kitchen - everything comes out, the countertops are a wreck, all the burners are going at once - and then I have to clean it up. I've had friends ask me to cook for them and my answer is always, "Sure, if you clean up."

I don't have a lot of space to cook in the truck, and I only have a single basin sink. And of course, I don't have a dishwasher. Well, unless Ed takes pity on me. So usually, my counter looks like this when I'm done. I use a drying mat that I bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond and I pile dishes, glasses, pots, pans and utensils like a Jenga game.

I may have a sink full of dirty dishes, but I have a belly full of deeelicious food! Oh, yeah!

As you can tell, trucking and travel stories are a little light this weekend, but hopefully the coming week will provide something interesting to post about.

Jenga and Tetris have help so much improving our "organization" techniques... my sister is incapable of putting more than two (small) suitcases in the trunk of the car while I can do wonders ;)

Catalina: Some people just have "it"! Personally, I think it's an underrated skill! :)

We have a rule in our house... if she cooks I clean (when i'm home) yet when the kitchen is clean from the night before and I have to clean up again its like "what piece of cookware and dishes did you NOT use to make this meal!" Don't feel bad.. your not the only one thats a cyclone in the kitchen!

I'm glad I'm not alone in my cyclonic episodes. I often look at the kitchen myself and think, "Is it possible I needed to use EVERY dish in the place??" Thanks for the comment!
