This morning I want to take a break from food and fitness talk, and instead discuss something that I have to deal with every single day – the dishes.
Every morning when I wake up (after chugging water, peeing, and letting Niko out,) if I didn’t do all the dishes the night before, I’ll put my coffee on and finish up what’s left in the sink. We have a dishwasher, which washes most of our dishes, but honestly I don’t even mind washing the other dishes by hand. Washing the dishes can be therapeutic!
It’s putting the dishes away where the problem lies. Actually, let me clarify that. I only mind putting away certain dishes. Plates, bowls, and cups I don’t mind at all:
Heck, I don’t even mind putting Tupperware away now that we threw out a bunch and got a system down.
The problem lies in the cabinets underneath. The cabinets for pots, pans, and “other” cookware.
This morning as I was shoving a cutting board under a cooling rack, my wok starting bulging out on the other side. As I finally slammed the cabinet door shut in haste, I thought, man…I always show off my organized cabinets/counters/kitchen on the blog. I need to admit that not everything is sunshine in roses in the casa de RAN. And it’s not:
*insert scary horror film music*
And the cabinet across – for, uhh, for casserole dishes, glass bake ware, the george foremans (why do we need two?) and other.
It seems no matter how much we try, we just can’t get these two problem cabinets under control. We’ve even taken most of the stuff we only use occasionally – the rice cooker (good for nothing,) slow cooker, juicer, etc. down to the basement!
Regardless, there’s got to be some refuge in organizing the pots/pans/miscellaneous cabinets…right? Where does one go when they need to know about
That’s right. Pinterest.
On this morning’s agenda was going to be a 3 mile run + a Niko walk, but I think my cardio might be in the form of cabinet organization today
OK, ok. This is a food and fitness blog, so how about a little ab burner to round things out this morning? I knew I felt a little fire in my belly as a wok fell on my foot within 10 minutes of waking this morning!
Have a great day! I’m thinking a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond may be in my future, haha.
Do you have a “problem cabinet/area” in your kitchen?
I guess you could also count a couple of our drawers…but who doesn’t have a junk drawer
