My Wish List

My Wish List

I've outgrown the campus apartment that my husband and I share.  More specifically, I've outgrown the kitchen.  It's a nice size kitchen... if your diet only consists of cereal and mac and cheese.  Since I'm a professional chef, I need room to roam and I need these few things:

1.  Dishwasher.  A basic necessity.  Someone (thing) to wash my dishes.  A wise friend once said "Dishwashers save marriages".  So, yes, we need a dishwasher.

2.  Garbage Disposal.  There are somethings that I just don't want to throw in the trash.  I shouldn't be punished for that!

3.  Herb Garden.  Now that I think about it, I've never been fully responsible for the growth of any plant.  This one might be a challenge.  But, again, I have a need.  The need for fresh herbs. 

4.  Outdoor Grill.  I have to admit that I'm a major control freak in the kitchen.  My poor husband wants to help with dinner every once in a while, but I get nervous when he steps over the line from the living room to the kitchen.  He's not a bad cook or anything, I'm just a control freak.  So a grill would be the perfect solution to the problem.  Open fire scares me.  I can just sit back and let him do his thing. 

5.  Patio.  Obviously, we need a home for the grill. 

6.  Deep Freezer.  I love freezing stuff.  We eat a lot of frozen meals (gasp!) on days that I work late.  I also like to freeze leftovers.  And I need lots of room for ice cream.

So there it is, my wish list.  I'm now taking cash or check donations.


  1. I totally agree with the dishwasher the garbage disposal. Josh has gone without those two things for most of his live but I couldn't live without them!

  2. This made me laugh!! I have soooo been there! Its nice to have these things- and most people take them for granted.
