Sneak into my Kitchen

I haven’t participated in a blog event in a very very long time. I intend to participate and a make a note about all the events I come across in a little diary, but hmm.. how do I say this.. I guess I never go back to check my notes and hence miss the event deadlines. My new resolution for the last quarter of the year (Can you believe we are almost at the end of ANOTHER year) is to make as many new dishes as I can and participate in as many blog events as I can. That reminds me of the large quantity of yeast that I have to consume before it expires, I better get baking..

Well this event doesn’t involve any cooking but I thought it is a good way to get back on blogging track. Nupur wants us to show our kitchens and if you want to show your kitchen head to her site and check out the details. So here’s a look into my kitchen: When we were looking for a house, our requirement was a kitchen with lots of storage and good counter space. One of the reasons we liked and bought this house was the kitchen, it had the storage we were looking for and the counter space we needed.

Our kitchen is a square with 2 “L” shaped counters on four sides. One “L” has the fridge, stove, sink and the dish washer. I keep a GB (garbage bowl—Rachel Ray’s lingo), oils, cutting boards and dish drainer (a tiny drainer for my little one’s stuff) on this counter.

The other “L” counter houses the breadbox, Ultra grind, corner shelf for snacks, potato & tomato bowls & the newest addition of my husband’s Coffee maker. This side of the kitchen is more for storage and less for active cooking.

I have quite a lot of pots and pans (I own 4 pressure cookers of different sizes); we used to have a pot rack in our previous apartment, but since I don’t have a place to hang, I stow them all in the pull out drawers. The drawers are quite wide and deep to hold lots of stuff.
My favorite spot however is this pull out corner cabinet where I put all my baking ingredients and extra spices.

I can be a little more organized and once in a while I get this urge to clean and I go on a cleaning spree. But I know where I keep my things and I think there’s a method to the madness and I totally love my kitchen. Thanks Nupur for hosting this no-cook event.
