A Brief History of My Bench Top

DSC_2688

Crazy days.  Kids on vacation.  Cows moving and shaking and calving.  Next batch of chickens looking good.  TAXES! So here is my bench.  From left to right:

  • glass of cheap ass white wine … from a box … but it’s French!
  • pancake bowl for morning pancakes … then afternoon pancakes
  • crazy panda mug, a gift to Daddy, from Lucy
  • cool pepper grinder recommended from my friend Erin as the best way to grind your pepper
  • pyrex jug for morning egg scramble, I don’t eat pancakes, but i make them with love
  • hanging fancy pan waiting for this evening’s hot chocolate
  • jar of duck fat
  • large cheap ass pan given to me by some whacky Aussie.  It serves as the pan to heat cow formula for “milk dud” our bottle calf.
  • tongs resting on top of the lid to shitty pan used to cook our test pork
  • Ikea towel resting on super expensive copper pan ( number blah when we bought expensive copper pans for each year we continued to stay married ) …. ( now we save money with a giggle and a hug and continue to stay married )
  • super expensive pot made leftover surprise with pork I carved off … like in the movie Alive … though with pig … not human ass…
  • our stand-in coffee pot because our loving espresso machine has had another fight with our water.  f-you calcaire!!
  • red pot heating milk for lesser coffee regime

    Your espresso machine hates your water too? I am endlessly having trouble with this! Am using a plunger for a rest from the wrestle.. Love your bench – I would show you mine but I am not sure where it is and I want to make cookies this afternoon!

    It looks chaotic but welcoming. I’d be over for pancakes and coffee at 9a.m., but live too far away.

        Maybe I should renew my passport…
