all get used most nights. Cleaning up that childhood kitchen was easy. Now it takes me at least 30 minutes.
My mother's dinners didn't require much preparation or cleanup. The only spices I remember were salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. Potatoes got washed and thrown in the oven with the meat. Or boiled in pan. The vegetables were frozen most of the year. No sauces or gravies of any kind except at Thanksgiving.
Now our first house as the Abbotts had a kitchen no bigger than this one. The next two, much bigger. And when I look at remodels of those row houses in Philly, they have gone open concept to at least give the illusion of more space. The less we cook, the bigger our kitchens get.
Do you remember your childhood kitchen? Was it different from your kitchen today.
