Should You Bring The Kitchen Sink?
CONTRIBUTED BY MEREDITH NOVARIO
Sorry about the title. I had to. Sue asked what to bring for the kitchen. I couldn’t pass it up. You understand.
In my experience off-base, less is better since space is such an issue. We have four of everything except mugs because Joe broke one of those this morning. And when things break around here, I inwardly cheer because that means prime real estate has just been made available. The waiting list for that mug’s sink-front cupboard property is long. I’m partial to bowl of sugar but Joe cast his vote for the ramekins which, although breakable AND within reach of the roaming toddler hands, are not in daily use. Seriously. When was the last time you used a ramekin? I’d duke it out with him but the boys are napping which means we huddle in our private corners to catch a breath and a sip of sanity.
Wait. This isn’t about me?
Fair enough. Talk to Sue.
My family and I will be moving to your island next February, however in the interim we will be nomads and our house is being packed in two weeks. I hope that I have a good grasp on what I should bring from the other rooms in my house thanks to this website, LOVE IT. The kitchen I am lacking though. I have heard everything from the military supplying your utensils and mixers to just go with plastic wear. So, what should I bring from my kitchen and/or what is available from the bases?
