Here's my stove and microwave. My oven crapped out awhile back, and I went a couple months without using an oven. But Paul, who is so not mechanically inclined, actually fixed it! That little gnome sitting on the stovetop is my Crunk Gnome. He has a gold chain and a gold tooth, and he's basically the patron saint of my kitchen.
I plan out my meals by the week using this magnetic meal planner on my microwave. As you can see, today I had fried rice for lunch and dinner. No shame.
On the left side of my stove, I have a candy jar, rainbow bowls and mugs, a cookbook holder, a carrot peeler, and my utensil jar. I've been making my own green cleaners today, so my favorite new zine — Make Your Place — is on the cookbook holder.
That candy jar was a gift from my friend Stephanie. She made it! It says "Vegan As Fuck." I keep my suckers in there.
I keep my Uni-Corn holders and my unicorn wine opener in the bowls because they match.
On the right side of the stove, I have my flour jar, my Turkish coffee jar (I keep the regular coffee in a cabinet and the cardamom-spiced Turkish stuff in this small mushroom jar), a really cool plate with a recipe for Pizza Bianca (a gift from my parents), my squirrel salt and pepper shakers, my nooch jar, and my Turkish coffee cups.
Here's a close-up of my nooch jar! I ordered it from Jeanette Zeis' Etsy shop. It's one of my most prized possessions. You can order one here. Her new ones actually say "Nooch" instead of "Nutritional Yeast."
Here's my fridge. It's stainless steel, so you can't stick magnets on it, and that drives me crazy. I can only put them on the side. :-( Tacked to the wall there is the Vegan Mofo prompt list.
On the other side of the kitchen, I have my Breville Juice Fountain, my whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, and green tea canisters, my food processor, our retro cracker tin where we keep medicine, and my Vitamix. God, I LOVE my Vitamix. I use it nearly every day.
And to the right of my sink is my Hello Kitty toaster (it actually burns an image of Hello Kitty onto the toast!), my tea maker, and my KitchenAid stand mixer.
And here's my breakfast nook, right off the kitchen. This is where I usually eat my meals since I typically eat alone. Paul eats in the living room in front of the TV, but I like to read while I eat. I have a bigger dining table, but I save that for special occasions. My pantry is opposite the breakfast table. I'd show you inside my pantry, but it's a mess right now.
And finally, a tour of my kitchen wouldn't be complete without introducing you to my kitchen cat, Seymour. He actually lives above my kitchen cabinets. He never comes down. He eats there. He sleeps there. He even poops up there. When I realized he wasn't coming down anymore, I had to give him a litter box. It sounds gross, but with only one cat using the box, it doesn't smell too bad. And I scoop daily. The rest of my cats live all over the house, like normal cats. But Seymour is a weirdo. He's super shy and skittish, and he hates the dogs, the other cats, and most people (except for me and Paul).
