In Other News. . .
And I am pleased to announce my new regime in the kitchen is working as planned. My lovely counter was always full of dirty dishes, crumbs, jelly blobs, half drunk orange juice glasses, and dried on plates of unfinished midnight meals. Then it dawned on me to, um, ...I want to say this in the nicest way possible---ban Dave from cooking in MY KITCHEN. Mmwa-ha-ha!
He balked and complained but I won the argument and it has worked for two weeks. I allow him to cook during the night, as long as he does it surreptitiously, not leaving me any clues that he was there. His worst habit, besides leaving drawers and doors open, was dumping food in the wrong side of the sink, not where the disposal is. So to fix that, I put a plastic dishpan in that sink and now he dumps his scraps into the right side of the sink. Yay!!
Why didn't I think of this sooner? This has instituted some changes in my routine too, emptying the dishwasher first thing in the morning, so breakfast dishes have some place to go.
And we have soooo many peppers. What a great end to the summer!
