I spent a day last week giving my kitchen a good, deep cleaning. You know the kind that involves moving things that remind you how long it's been since you moved them last? As much as I don't like to see the gunk and grime, I absolutely love the way the kitchen smells and feels after I'm finished.
I took all the pretties down from the shelves on high and gave them a nice warm, sudsy bath.
I love to mix things up a bit as I put stuff back from a clean sweep and just rearranging chickens and bird houses and pitchers has a way of making a room feel fresh and new.
The only problem is that I find myself not wanting to use the stove to cook with because I know it's only a matter of time before the grease splatters and bubbling yummies will find their way into the air and I'll be right back where I started from.
But of course life (and cooking) must go on. Today I am on a quest to perfect my pie crust making abilities. I've only made a few from scratch because the refrigerator ones are pretty good, but I would really love to be able to whip one up anytime I want to.
I'll let you know how it goes. Any crust making secrets you'd care to share?
