~A kitchen day checklist~

In trying to reclaim my household from the chaos that has taken over these past few months, I have decided to assign each day of the week its own tasks.  Since Tuesday seems to be a calmer day for me, it will be my kitchen day.  Here is a glimpse at Tuesday’s kitchen day. ~

I made a rub for the ribs using salt, brown sugar, seasoning salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, thyme, oregano, and dried mustard.  We coated them with bar-b-que sauce as they were cooking.

The chicken is being marinated in a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing dry mix and olive oil.

~Clean out one drawer and one cabinet.  Clean out another drawer and cabinet next time.  It’s not so overwhelming that way.~

  2. Great mind think alike. I tackled the dreaded "Tupperware" cabinet last night. (Not that there's any real Tubberware in there...)

  3. I really like this idea. I have tried doing a room a week but I get discouraged and drop the whole thing. But a room a day would keep me motivated I think. Thanks for sharing, I need something to get me going. Like Amanda, I am in a rut!

  5. I don't typically like to work in the kitchen but I did enjoy this day. One thing, I really like to make bread. Don't ask me to make cookies because that's just not my thing! :) But bread...awww, I love it! The work that I did on this day really helped us to not eat out this week. I hope to do another one this coming week but I've got a super busy day next Tuesday so we shall see! :)
