I spent the entire week cleaning the kitchen--taking my cue from my daughter-in-love Kris, I worked on throwing out or giving away the items we rarely or never use.  Now I have room for the stuff we do use.  It is so nice to have a clean kitchen.  I wonder how long it will stay that way?

I think the part I most enjoyed was throwing out the rusty pans and cookie sheets we do use and buying new ones!  It is much more fun to cook with shiny non-stick cookie sheets.
