My kitchen

What's the most popular room in your house?
 

Without a shadow of doubt, that will have to be the kitchen for us!

 
Our kitchen is where we start the day with juice and toast, and on Sundays my favorite bowls steaming hot with café con leche on the table, French bread and mermelada de naranja or strawberry preserves.
 

In our house we love our bread... what would we do without it? No bread means no morning delight. No bread means no French toast. No bread means no breaded anything. Bread is the foundation for blessed goodness like turkey stuffing, eggs Benedict and meatloaf. If it's true that man can’t live on bread alone, also true is that the house in the roses cannot live without it!

Our kitchen is a Magic place, where yummy food adds joy to life, and it is also the place where we catch up with each other and talk about the occurrences of our day while making dinner...


 
Sometimes, it is also a playground for my fantasies whenever I'm alone... a place for dress-up plays and royal princess parties with a touch of Victorian elegance...

 
It’s also the place where everyone gravitates during parties and get-togethers. We head to the kitchen when we’re hungry, not just for food, but for friends and family.....

 
...and it is the place where we unwind at night with a cup of tea.

 
...or indulge in something out of the oven yummy, like this Salvadorian Quesadilla we made late last night while watching a movie...
 

 
When I'm old and gray, I want to have a house surrounded by a beautiful garden in the outskirt of the woods. And write. With a lot of wonderful friends, good books, music and bird songs around, and a gorgeous cottage kitchen to cook and live in.



What about you? What’s the most popular room in your house?
