Balancing food and family
This is one wall in my kitchen. It is symbolic to me because it has a mix of everything. There are three different shelves with food on them, cook book shelves, food culture books, arts and craft stuff everywhere, and in some of the white baskets I have various gluten free flours. The organization of staple foods for us keep me sane. Is my jar of nutritional food yeast is 1/2 full or 1/2 empty?
This represents my life.
Kids and cooking. How to blend them all? Mix them all around. Dinner time will always be busy, and meal planning, grocery shopping, and cooking will always be mixed around our schedule and children's activities.
I like my wall. I think it looks very pretty. I have my Grandmother's tea cups displayed on some of the shelves. The kids like to drink out of them when they are sick. I have candles that we sometimes put on the table, and the kids take turns blowing them out. (They came in handy a couple nights ago when we lost our power.)
