For the past (almost) 14 months, I have loved every single thing about writing this blog. The recipes (even the ‘not-a-keepers’), sharing the results with you, your suggestions and feedback…everything! Ok, well not everything. The overflowing sink filled with dirty dishes on a regular basis is one thing I could do with out!
There are some days (usually Sundays when I do my big cooking) when I look at the sink and surrounding counter and kinda, sorta wanna cry…a little. I really don’t like washing dishes. At all.
Luckily, I have a dishwasher. And, believe me, I usually pack that sucker up with so many dishes that I wonder if the little water-spinning-thing will actually be able to spin! But somehow, some way, all the dishes come out amazingly clean.
While I love my dishwasher, I never put my pots and pans or knives in there. I’m weird like that. And, you can imagine how many pots and pans I use testing out all of the recipes that I’ve been posting! So, I’m left to wash all of them. By hand. Ugh.
To make the best of it, I put on my favorite playlist and get to scrubbing. The one good thing is I always feel a big sense of accomplishment when the mountain of grimy dishes (and my kitchen counters) are squeaky clean.
Ok….enough procrastinating. Time to get back to the dishes. UGH!
