Ilva from Lucullian delights came up with a wonderful idea for a post, which happened to inspire us, so we’ve decided to show you guys where it all goes down… here are a few pictures of our kitchen area. Lovely isn’t it?
The itsy bitsy oven…circa 1950A: well here it is. this is where all the magic happens for WWE…. not particularly exciting, eh? but hey, we’re in our twenties and living two blocks from the pacific ocean!
T: yes it’s certainly wonderful when you consider the living conditions of so many people in the world. We’re doing aaaallright.
A: giggity giggity. definately true. as my dad would say, “folks have done a lot worse than this”. while this kitchen could be improved upon, what couldn’t?
T: it’s true. we always bitch about how small that oven is… how it’s the size of a large microwave..
A: which it is…
T: how it is too small to fit even your pizza stone in it… how… it’s ugly. How about the stove? 2 functional burners, 2 disfunctional burners.
A: yeah… not optimal, but we seem to make it work. we’ve even cooked holiday meals in this microwave sized oven and two burner stove…and just so you know, it’s the two small right burners that actually work. I would give anything for a large burner! or for a gas stove!… well… maybe not anything!
T: well it’s a good thing you caught yourself there, because I was thinking of all kinds of things that you could offer me in exchange for a new range.
A: heheh like what? i’m still open to suggestions!
T: let’s talk about it after the blog is over, k sweetie?
A: you’re one dirty dog, pepita. One other thing i would also change about our kitchen if given a chance would be the lack of dishwasher. i haven’t really lived with a dishwasher (other than, you, Tyler) since i moved out of my parents house when i was 18.
T: dishwashers are nice. People who have never had them tend to be naysayers, but once you’ve had one… it’s easy to become adjusted. Hmmm… what would you rate our kitchen?
A: always a rating! i dunno, i guess i would give our kitchen a… hmmm…. a 2.5/5. Oooooh it’s half way there..ooooh oooh living on a prayeeer….
T: I wish I knew the next line to sing along, but that’s all I know. God I love Bon Jovi. I give our kitchen a 2.1. It does the job, but it’s tiny and the range doesn’t work too well. And the damn oven is too small for your pizza stone which I got you for your damn birthday.
A: two years in a row! it’s a shame we forgot to pack the one you gave me in louisiana, which is now sitting in your dad’s garage. the one thing i do like about our kitchen is the counter space. even though it’s not particularly deep, we’ve got lots of it. and generally when cooking, i use almost all of it! woo hoo… go kitchen with counter space.
T: our next kitchen will have: an island, a double oven, a gas stove, a mondo fridge, lots of natural light, a dishwasher, and a doggy at your feet.
A: our next kitchen?!?! i guess it’s good to think big! gotta keep those positive vibes flowing in, you know. i will be happy if our next kitchen has a dishwasher, a full sized oven, and all four burners on the stove working. all the rest is lagniappe.
