Rose and Pearl both have a day to be in charge of the cooking. Rose has Wednesday and you can see here here at work making a coffee cake that actually ended up going to a potluck gathering that night. It is a great help for Brenda and I when the girls take over the cooking and they always seem to take it seriously and make something wonderful.
The big chopping block standing on its side is hard maple and plenty husky. It stays in place when you are chopping on it. It was a recent curb find. As you can see here we have a lot of cast iron skillets because I love the way they evenly distribute the heat and there classic look. There is a brush hanging up we use to paint on glazes for bread or scones. The bowl behind the chopping block covered with cloth is moistened oat meal we leave on the counter to ferment. The covered jar is fermented kombucha. The apple peelings went to the bunnies. The Doe is due to have her first litter next week.
We love our kitchen and use it off and on all day long. It is the heart of our house and the computer in the living room where I am writing this blog may be the brain.
