Even with most of the counters covered with Misc that I am sorting out homes for, there was space for me to make two quiche cases, one actual quiche (the other case went in the HUGE FREEZER), and some salad.

It was a tiny bit cramped but not in any way that was actually a problem and I have subsequently cleared something like... 2-3 times the amount of counter space I had available when I started cooking? And there is Going To Be More? And that's with all the gadgets out in actually useful places?

Plus: the layout of the open-plan kitchen/living room, right, means that when one of us is cooking the other can be sprawled on the corner of the ridiculous sofa being company including, like, eye contact and things. (Or even doing other useful stuff in the kitchen BECAUSE THERE IS SPACE.)

-- and of course it's doing even slightly involved cooking, and having the kitchen sorted out, that makes me settle in. There's a lot left to be done -- most of the living room and a significant chunk of the bedroom is still boxes -- but I am buoyant and optimistic and happy. And I'm tired and I hurt, but -- I am happy.

So glad it's working out! I love my kitchen, but it would be nice if it was open to the living room. My mom when I was growing up always wanted company when she was cooking, so I've always thought of kitchens as social spaces.

Yay! I hope I can make it there someday and spend an afternoon cooking you some of my Polish recipes...I gather they're similar enough to your family's stuff to be familiar.

(I feel bad I didn't manage more cooking when I visited you, but that visit was kind of overbooked with "Seeing London for the First Time" and things...)

Oh good.

Reading this makes me believe there's light at the end of the tunnel of my own kitchen problems: ours is too small and weirdly laid out, and we probably need to get a rolling cart to reduce that problem. Somehow, even though there's an ocean between us, this is feeling like "yes, kitchens can work even in rental housing, remember?" rather than "why don't I get one this good?" ("Remember" because the previous two places, with much better kitchens, were also rentals.)

Ooooh, yay for having actual kitchen space and a floorplan that allows for socializing while kitchening.
