My Kitchen Stadium

*This is entry #40 for Lasang Pinoy, Sundays (La.Pi.S.).*

This week’s theme for La.Pi.S. is “My Kitchen”.  It’s a good thing I have photos of what I consider to be my very own “kitchen stadium” even if I am not what you might call an iron chef.  Hee.  These photos were taken on October 23 at after 1am.  Oh I remember that night.  Late as it was, I had this itch to give the kitchen some cleaning.

This is as clean and clear as it gets.  With the amount of cooking, baking and just recently, cake decorating,  that I do, it is not unusual to see a a pack of sugar or flour on the counter.

This area with the kitchen sink is my “prep station”.  That corner is reserved for the Kitchen Aid stand mixer that I will own…someday.  Hahaha!  For now, there’s a handmixer on that spot and a big tub of cookie cutters which I have yet to put away.

This area where the stove and microwave are is my cooking station.  All our kitchen appliances are white.  That was not something we planned.  It just so happened that when we moved, we received a white rice cooker and toaster.  So we found ourselves buying white kitchen appliances.  :)

My dream kitchen looks a lot different.  Just thinking about it puts a smile to my face.  No Discount Blinds allowed.  Haha!  As my Mom would say, it’s free to dream.  ;)

Have a great weekend, y’all!

    I was actually thinking of posting my dream kitchen instead of my small, cramped and messy kitchen. lol! Pwede kaya?

    Also, how come I never get the ‘itch’ to clean? Ang ganda ng kitchen mo, Weng. I love that you have a spot reserved for your kitchen aid already!

    Hi JMom! Wala namang magagawa si Ces if you post photos of your dream kitchen. Hahaha! My kitchen doesn’t always look like this. That’s why when I cleaned it that late October night, I had to take a picture. I do love my kitchen. It’s just the right size for the three of us. But my dream kitchen is twice as big. With an island that has its own sink! ;) I reserved that corner for my future stand mixer as part of my visualization process. Hahaha! Kitchen Aid stand mixer, come to Munchkin Mommy! :)

    Have a great weekend, JMom! :)

    Hi Mimi! How do I do it? Hahaha! Good question! I will myself to do it because I am more comfortable when I have room to move and room for all the ingredients, bowls, chopping board, etc. :) Cleaning, clearing and dishwashing are my least favorite kitchen chores, of course, specially after a baking adventure. :D

    at least your appliances are color coordinated. :) i have a tendency to buy stuff from garage sales so none of my treasured mini appliances match in color. and i, too, have formica top–in green (i don’t like green). but at least it is not avocado green… our refrigerator was avocado green (very 70s I was told) matching my avocado green sink! :):) thanks for sharing your kitchen….

    Hi Raquel! It was a clean start for us when we moved so except for a few appliances which we received as gifts, all our other kitchen utensils and appliances (except for the stove, microwave, fridge and dishwasher) are new. When we are blessed with our own home, I’ll probably keep the white motif going, or maybe black and white, as far as the appliances are concerned. :) And then maybe I can have one key appliance in a loud color, like red. Oh, I don’t know. :D

    If that isn’t the dream kitchen yet, I wonder how one would look like…
    That is definitely good enough for me :-)

    Hi Iska! My dream kitchen will look so much different from the one I have right now. Nevertheless, I’m thankful for my current kitchen. It works for a family our size. Whenever I see photos of beautiful kitchens on magazines or actual model kitchens in Ikea, I always tell myself it’s such a waste if those kitchen are for display only…I mean if no one actually cooks in them! Since I became a SAHM two years ago, I think I’ve already earned the right to a beautiful kitchen. Hahaha! :D

  8. You have a lovely kitchen Weng! It’s nice to see where you create all those yummy dishes you share on your blog. My hubby also wants to have his own Kitchen Aid mixer.

    Hi Rach! Thank you and welcome to my kitchen! :) This kitchen has been witness to a lot of kitchen triumphs and disasters as well. If only kitchens could talk! I’m glad they can’t. haha! :D

    Hi Miriam! I actually bought myself a Kitchen Aid mixer last December. I returned it after a week, unopened. :) I thought I got a good deal when I bought it but I was wrong. Anyway, the next one will be the real deal. No return, no exchange! :D
