Per usual, I only have a half baked idea of what I want. And, since it's the kitchen, the idea's really half baked. Probably burnt on one side and is likely missing a few ingredients. Sigh. Poor kitchen.
For those that don't know me, the max time I spend in my kitchen is about 5 minutes: 1 minute to put my leftovers from [restaurant] in the fridge and the other 4 minutes doing things like ironing, refilling my water cup and grabbing some treats for Miss Ruby.
Needless to say, when it comes to the kitchen, I'm clueless. Thankfully, I've been able to grab some small clues from my culinary student boyfriend, Jim, on what constitutes a functional kitchen. And since my idea of a dream kitchen is one that's housed in a restaurant, I'm hoping to cram together a plan that begs the question, "what would Jim want in his kitchen".
Or maybe I should just scrap the kitchen all together and build in a delivery unit instead. Wish me luck tonight people - I'll definitely be needing it.
