The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home

So it seems, anyway. If you spend as much time as I do in there, it is certainly where 'everything' seems to happen! In the past month we've had two different girls from school come and sleep over. One remarked "You do a lot of cooking!", to which I replied "My family do a lot of eating!".

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm also a real sticky beak and I loooovvvveeee getting a little glimpse of what other people's homes look like. While I am very reluctant to share photos of my family or much of our home, for security reasons, I think kitchens are very similar the world over. They have ovens, stoves, many have microwaves, a fridge, a sink etc. So I'm taking a step out of my 'norm' and share a photo of my kitchen.

I wanted to say 'Welcome' to all you 'new' ladies who have commented in the last couple of days. I get a lot of joy from just knowing you're there and I appreciate your comments.

Kamailesfood ~ I didn't take your comment yesterday as rude, at all. I was thinking to myself "oh I feel your pain!". I don't enjoy summer heat. And trying to cook in it...well, that is my little version of a nightmare! You're so right ~ I wouldn't attempt soup in the heat of summer either!

Your kitchen is exactly like my kitchen, except for the microwave over the stove. Isn't that funny that we live a hemisphere apart and yet move around the same kitchens. I feel like I spend half my day in mine. You'd think it would be cleaner ...

You have a lovely kitchen, I love the timber.
