LaPiS: Step Into My Kitchen

The theme for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sundays is My Kitchen. This is mine. It’s an old and cramped kitchen but it works for us. We spend a lot of our time in front of that stove cooking up the dishes you see here. We’re hoping to one day re-do the kitchen but we still have the rest of the house to do first. In the meantime, we make do with what we have and try to work around some of the quirks that came with it.

For instance, do you see the uneven cabinets above the stove? That’s because right next to the stove was supposed to be the place for the refrigerator. Who puts the refrigerator right next to the stove? So after the old refrigerator that was there finally died, we put the new one on the opposite wall away from the stove. Now the stove can breath and the refrigerator does not heat up every time we turn the stove on.

When the old gas range that came with the house died, we finally switched to our preferred gas range with one super hot eye. Now I can stir fry again without ending up with a soupy concoction. One improvement at a time…. maybe I’ll have my dream kitchen eventually. πŸ˜‰

    you have a good looking kitchen. and yeah, why out a ref beside the stove? isn’t that dangerous?:D i’m a bit paranoid with gas stoves that i cook outside…i have a small dirty kitchen.

    dream kitchen, indeed!
