Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
It’s a 1974 three-bedroom Suburban, EB, with four maple trees and two bathrooms. The kitchen is a galley that extends across the back of the house between the dining room and the back door, with only enough room for one person to work efficiently; if two people try to work together in there, bad things can happen. It’s what my aunt the architect called a one-bum kitchen.

Mind you, rather a lot of money ago it was much worse, with a dangerous lack of ventilation, horrible cabinets and a leak in the ceiling from the bathroom sink upstairs. It’s now about as good a kitchen as it can be, but there’s not much we can do about its essential galley-ness.

So Himself makes breakfast and does the baking, and I make dinners and plan the menus. Even division of labour, and we don’t spill boiling water on each other.
