Crockpot Concerns?
Happy First Day of Fall!

Wednesday in the Kitchen


First of all I want to thank everyone for the many thoughtful comments left in yesterday's crockpot post. I appreciate your input very much! I will be reading through the advice and checking out the links over the next couple of days ... and I also warned Bill we might be buying a new slowcooker this weekend!

The picture above I took yesterday in preparation for a planner post I'm working on, but I figured it would be fun to post a kitchen shot this morning. According to my daily routine, Wednesday is my kitchen cleaning day. Weekly kitchen chores include:

Sweeping and spot cleaning the kitchen floor.

Wiping down appliances.

Washing countertops.

Scrubbing in and around the sink.

Shaking baking soda down the disposal, letting it sit, then running with boiling water.

Going through the refrigerator and freezer - tossing/composting old food.

Going through the cabinets - tossing old food.

Starting a menu plan/marketing list for next week.

(I will also pull out all my spices and miscellaneous baking supplies today and make a list of what needs to be replenished this Fall.)

By the way, I keep a set of index cards at my work area (one color for each day of the week) that outline routine household tasks. Wednesday's card happens to be yellow. :)

Oh, and one last thing, on tonight's dinner menu: homemade whole wheat pizzas, tossed salad and leftover apple crisp. A homey, humble Autumn meal.

 So that's a peek into my kitchen today ... how are things in your neck of the woods?
