You, me and the kitchen sink

Hold on to your hats, everyone, today we have a man's kitchen. This is Jordan's kitchen in Washington state, USA.

Jordan writes:

"My sister says I need to send you the pictures of my kitchen. It is very chicken and fun. This is a Man's Kitchen. My Kitchen is very small but taken care of.
I am a single 44 year old Cowboy who currently drives Semi for a living. I live in Washington state, USA. I, in my spare, time sew quilts and cowboy shirts. 
My sister is a big quilter and enjoys all the blogs and web sights. She, after seeing the others, knew I needed to send pics of mine. Truthfully we didn't even clean it up or anything that is just the way I keep it."

Thanks for taking part in this, Jordan. I was beginning to think there were no men cooking out there in their own kitchens. I really love your chicken rug.

Please don't forget to comment. A comment is like payment for the time taken to post, and in this case in sending in the photos.  Many of us were enthusiastic about this series, so make sure all the photos get a good number of comments.  I don't want any of the people sending in photos to regret joining in.  Thank you friends.

  5. Wow Jordan, you have very good taste.Your kitchen looks great. I have always enjoy a "chicken" theme in the kitchen. No matter how many you see they all seem to have their own personalities. Job well done!....Ann

  7. Jordan, you put me to shame - I can't sew worth a darn (it's on the list of things to learn!) Love your chicken-themed kitchen. It's nice to see a man's kitchen, and a tidy one at that. You must be a very multi-faceted man. Glad that you shared with us! Lyn

  12. Jordan, thanks for sharing your kitchen with us. Just love the 3 canisters behind your sink, and a corner sink at that. Love it. Did you have some of your bench scraps cut to fit over your sink to create more bench space. Makes a huge difference doesn't it!

  25. Hi Jordan, Thank you for sharing your kitchen with us. What a great space. I love the chicken theme also. Where did you get the chicken canisters? I would love to have some like that. When you get a chance, I am sure we would all love to see some of your quilts and shirts! Thanks again for sharing and for your hard work as a truck driver. Sometimes I wonder what we would have to do without if it weren't for the trucks and drivers hauling stuff across the country for us. Quin

  27. Thanks for sharing your kitchen. My husband can cook but this will just show him that men can cook and keep the kitchen clean as well! As a trucky it must be nice to return home to such an organised and welcoming place. Thanks again. Carol

  31. I like all things chicken!(I have chickens.) Great kitchen and much cleaner than mine!

  32. Jordan -- Anyone who can accurately describe his kitchen as "very chicken" is OK in my book!

    ReplyDelete
  33. And I thought that my kitchen was tiny! I love it though, the chickens are awesome :o)

  34. Nice corner sink! Reminds me of the year we lived in Los Angeles when I was a kid, and we had a corner sink. Our parakeet (budgerigar) used to run under the water on the sink divider, then fly up to the handle of the casement window to preen and dry in the sun.

    Jordan - just wondering - were the chickens your idea or your sister's?

  37. Hi Jordan..how blessed is it that a man sent in his kitchen,you would be a welcome visitor to our weekly quilting group the "Cackle CLub"here in Australia I think quilting and swapping stories with a semi driver with a tidy kitchen would be bliss and more perfect you like chickens!!

  45. Thankyou for sharring,you keep a very nice kitchen. And when I read that you were a quilter I just had to share with my son. He made a quilt a few years ago in 4-H. With all that is involved it's far from a womans activity.
    Sending warm wishes.

    This is Jordan, Yes I am single and just want to thank you all for the nice comments. With my home being so small I find you have to keep is very clean and organized. I will send in a couple more pictures of my shirts and quilts when I return from the road. The chicken thing. I dont remeber how it really got started but it kind of took off and everyone seemed to be adding to it. The rug was a Christmas present from Mom. The canisters and bowls I found in a shop on my journeys. It kind of just took over so I went with it. The entire rest of my place is in Cowboy from Bev Doolittle prints to Montana silver statues. Thanks again for all the comments and I will send Rhonda some pic's of some of my quilts and shirts.
