Letting it all hang out

I never claimed to be neat.

I never claimed to be tidy.

And I never claimed to be a neat and tidy cook!

Actually, I am a very, very messy cook.  Always have been, always will be.

We are hosting a Christmas Open House with some friends tomorrow night.  Thank GOODNES the open house is not at MY house!  It is a mess.  Not just the kitchen.  The whole house is a mess.  But that will change – it always does.  By nature I am actually a very tidy person.  But when there is a lot going on, I let things slide, knowing we will bring it all back around sooner, rather than later.

I’m not so sure about this kitchen, though.  See for yourself.

You don’t think that is too bad?  How about this?

You see a bottle of rum you say?  Why yes you do! 

Some of the recipes I am making are Spinach Phylo Rollups, Crab Rangoon, Bacon Wrapped Chestnuts, Bacon Bundles, Bourbon Weiners, a Vegetable Tray with Anchovy Dip,  Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, Smoked Turkey Canapes, and some sort of candy – can’t remember the name.

Dang!  I’m ready for some of that rum!

Party pictures to follow.  Maybe.

After making Spinach Phylo Rollups, Crab Rangoon, Bacon Wrapped Chestnuts, Bacon Bundles, Bourbon Weiners, a Vegetable Tray with Anchovy Dip, Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, Smoked Turkey Canapes, and some sort of candy I would think your kitchen would be REALLY messy!

Goodness.. all that stuff sounds so yummy!

That looks like a very busy kitchen.

Funny in my mind said...

That meat looks like the half rabbit I found today that the dog ate part of.....
Yea to the rum!
My kitchen looked like that for 3 days before and 2 days after Thanksgiving!
Have a beautiful and hopefully 40 degree (sad that 40 sounds warm)
Thanks for the hair compliment!
I plan to have fun in NY too!

What matters is that you enjoy the cooking, enjoy the party, and clean the mess up later! ;)


You should see the mess in the kitchen after my Mam's been cooking... Actually, maybe you shouldn't! ;)

I am sooooo hungry now Punkn!! I hope you have fun at your party. You look like a busy busy bee, this time of year my house definately looks out of whack just from Christmas boxes and paper and all the good stuff to go with it until I can get everything like I want it.

It doesn't matter how messy of a cook you are or how messy your kitchen looks when you're in the process of making or baking...what matters is how wonderful everything you cook tastes when it's done. It sounds very tasty to me. :)

Have a great time at the open house. *hugs*

I should take pictures of my house right now and pretend this is how we keep it all the time! We had to totally clean and declutter for showings to sell our house. It was such a pain!
