3 Things that Work in the Kitchen – new dishwasher coming!

Shares 1

1. We bought a dishwasher!

After almost 11 months of washing dishes by hand, we’re getting a new dishwasher.  Last summer we figured out that the slow leak we couldn’t seem to fix or solve had ruined the cabinet next to the dishwasher.  That happened right before Jim had a bad bike accident, the upstairs air conditioning unit went out and we traveled to Paris.

We decided spending money on the dishwasher could wait.

It hasn’t been bad washing by hand.

But I’m glad to get a new one!  It will be a week or so before it gets installed.  And fingers crossed that it doesn’t leak!

2. Figuring out where to put the things being stored in the dishwasher “hole”

The spot where the dishwasher goes made a perfect storage place for water jugs, the Instant Pot and the bread machine.  I’ve got some decluttering to do in the dining room cabinets to find places for these things!

3. Check the time before trying a new recipe

On Sunday I decided to make one of the freezer meals I’d made on Facebook live last Wednesday.  I chose Grandma’s Spaghetti Sauce.  I thawed it out and put it in the pressure cooker, along with some meatballs.

I also decided to set up the bread machine with a recipe from the booklet that came with the machine – Parmesan Peppercorn French Bread.  Unfortunately I didn’t check how long it would take, so it wasn’t done when we were ready to eat.

We tried it after lunch and really liked it, but next time I’ll check the bake time and hopefully be able to serve the bread with the meal.

What’s working in your kitchen this week?
