Been in a baking mood of late. Made a really awesome flourless chocolate cake yesterday for my husband's birthday. One of the few times that a last minute Internet search for a recipe really paid off. :)And today I am baking bread.
The downside is of course the massive pile of dishes accumulating next to my sink. So thankful I have a working dishwasher. :)
I drive people crazy when I cook because I pretty much throw them out of the kitchen. I need paths to the sink, fridge, pantry, prep surfaces, storage surfaces, and stovetop, and have no qualms about telling people to move if they're in any of those paths.
But at that point it's, "Prep the ingredient, put it in a prep bowl, clean up, repeat."
The kitchen is inevitably cleaner after I've cooked than before I started... but I *do* drive people crazy in the process.
I'm with you on the wanting people to stay out of the kitchen when I'm cooking. I move quickly and get annoyed when I keep having to ask someone to move away from the sink/fridge/shelf where I keep the pans. Inevitably they stand in front of one of the three. But I am a clean in one big burst at the end of the day kind of person. So I have a large pile of neatly stacked dishes next to the sink. Drives my husband nuts. He can't understand why I don't clean as I go. I can't understand why he thinks I can focus on more than one task at once. I have ADHD. One task is already a big deal. :P
