Do you have a dishwasher? I don't. Some days this can be very frustrating as the dishes start to really pile up. I love cooking, and I do find washing dishes to be semi relaxing. When the get this piled up though, it just becomes overwhelming.
That's right! I'm showing the real, almost every day look of my kitchen sink! You know what is crazy though, I just did all the dishes yesterday afternoon, to end up with this halfway through today. We made cookies, chicken cordon bleu, and had cereal for breakfast.
So how do we stop this nonsense? Today's tip comes from my mom. Before you start cooking, fill your sink with hot water and soap. Than as you cook, toss each dirty dish into the prepared sink. The get a soak while you finish the cooking. Now a lot of foods require some "wait time" where you have nothing to do. Start on those dishes!
I really need to put this advice into effect over here. It would make such a huge difference in the feel of our home.
