You, me and the kitchen sink

We have Rachael's kitchen in Waco Texas today.  It looks to me like another cook's kitchen where a family might gather.


Rachael writes:
"We moved into this house, in Waco, Texas, 7.5 months ago, from Southern California. In So Cal, I had a small kitchen in a one bedroom, 700 sq ft, apartment. Now, we have our own house and I have kitchen that I really enjoy cooking in! Its very simple, so I took pictures while it was in use to make it more interesting; I was making peanut butter cookies. From where the picture was taken in the entryway to the living room and rest of the house. Behind me (the picture taker) is the dining room. There is a good sized pantry just beyond the refrigerator and I hope to fill it with lots of canned goods next summer and fall, but those plants are little bitty seedlings still, so its all hopes still."

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.

  8. Peanut butter is my favorite! I loved that you took your picture while in use. It looks like the kind of place you could wander into and find something yummy to eat and someone to chat with all at the same time. The best kind of kitchen!

    All the best from Utah, Jayne
