Please believe me when I tell you I spent several hours yesterday cleaning my kitchen. It was clean and sparkling. Here it is today (and this is after I cleaned up some):
Yes, I did use 8 knives, the kitchen shears, and a mandoline to prepare a pork loin, scalloped potatoes, and a chopped salad. I have a very bad habit of using a knife and tossing it in the sink. Then, I realize I need it again, but I don't want to grab a dirty knife out of the sink. Before long, my knife block is empty.
Why do I even try?
