Wanted: Traveling Maid

This is what my kitchen looked like every day during the trek from Oregon to Massachusetts.  On the days I made breakfast, this happened twice.  Cooking for four people is not hard, but I found myself using almost every dish, cooking vessel, and utensil in the place.  And washing dishes is the worst part.  
I stack everything like my grandmother and aunts used to do.  It's really cookware, bakeware, cutlery, and barware Jenga.  I strategically place things on top of one another so they have optimum air flow and dry quicker.  Ed is not allowed to touch this pile while it's drying.

This pile is from the last night we all dined together.  Everyone left early and I was able to catch the last showing of Tyrant, my new favorite show.  Even Bassam Al-Fayeed (the incredibly handsome main character) is staring at that pile with a look on his face that says, "What the hell happened here??"

Of course, as a character whose family runs an entire country, he's probably never even seen a pile of dishes.

I need an empire.
