Two Crazy Kitchens
Our 2 week Quarantine Vacay has involved 2 rental homes. That means, the 6 of us have had to adjust to 2 kitchens. Not really a huge deal.
The 2 homes have been wonderful, but also a little quirky. The kitchens have tested our patience, just a bit.
We've been doing curbside pick up, to keep things as safe as possible. It was over an hour round trip, for the first house. I miss the days of running back to the store for the thing you forgot!
Then where do you put everything? The cabinets and drawers were stuffed. 4 can openers, 3 coffee pots, 10 different designs of eating utensils and about 20 shot glasses. We kept food on the counters, which pleased a tiny mouse who very much liked bagels!
But our focus was on being together. The variety of forks was just amusing. The scenery from the grill, was amazing.
And eating all together for the first time in 10 months, was incredible!
Now we're at the second house and we've been constantly amused by the dated kitchen. It took 3 of us to figure out the ancient convection oven.
There are no cookie sheets or casserole dishes. Oh my.
The trash compactor is comical. I thought it had exploded when Jamie turned it on. And the can opener needs to be thrown away. We made do with a Swiss Army Knife.
Grilling & Carryouts
But kitchen issues really aren't worth ranting over.
We gave ourselves a pizza delivery one night and picked up a seafood feast, another day.
Thanksgiving in August
And since the months ahead are uncertain, we had an August Thanksgiving meal. 6 at a table for 4 was extra cozy!
It's tricky finding things and cooking, in a strange kitchen. It's hard doing curbside shopping for more than 2. But oh how worth it!
I am so THANKFUL to be spending time with this gang!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
