The joys of a small kitchen

On Memorial Day I spent several hours cleaning and rearranging my kitchen. I was so proud of myself for all the success I had. We threw out stuff we didn't need and consolidated things so I have an entire counter with nothing on it. This is a huge accomplishment for us!

However, this means that I put everything else on the other counter (microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, knives, kitchen utensils). These are all in the space between our wall and our stove (about 3 feet, if that?) Well, I was jazzed about it, until this morning.

I was making my usual eggs, toast, juice, coffee and water and failed to notice that the cord from the coffee maker was in the toaster slot... i was only toasting one piece...

As I was cooking my omelet (I've perfected these now)! Something went "Pop!" and "Spark!"... I was sooo lucky that we didn't start a fire.

So, no more working coffee maker, we will go back to using our 4 cup pot (a good thing probably), but we have a bunch of cone filters if anyone needs them...

No more working fuses in the kitchen, Matt didn't have time to fix it before leaving...

But, our $10 microwave survived! Yeah! Oh yeah, and I still got to enjoy my omelet and made Matt's waffles in the oven. Delish!

I love rearranging the Kitchen! We too have a small kitchen, and have all the appliances along one part of the counter. Seriously, the organizational part of me gets a thrill when I find a spot for something extra!
