Most mornings, Bart and I have a fruit smoothie for breakfast (vanilla soy milk, strawberry yogurt, frozen bananas, and frozen strawberries). Today, I stopped by the store to pick up some soy milk since we have been without for the last two days.
Tonight, while I was cleaning up the kitchen, I began anticipating making the shakes tomorrow morning and pictured myself taking the blender and the blender stand out of the cupboard where they are stored along with my other appliances.
This reminded me of my mom's visit this summer. When I went to make some toast, she said "Don't tell me you are one of those people who puts their toaster away every time!" Unfortunately, I am.
For my mom, who loves bread and has toast almost daily, it would indeed be an inconvenience. For me, who has toast approximately never and who uses the toaster only about three times a month, it makes perfect sense. Also, I have about six inches of counter space which I certainly am not going to be bestowing upon my little-used toaster. (Ironically, we received four toasters for our wedding).
So? Appliances on the counter or tucked away where nobody sees?
NaBloPoMo, you have reduced me to asking about you kitchen appliances.
