The eating nook

This is the spot. I usually have at least two of my 4 meals here (2 breakfasts, lunch, and dinner – what?).

This is me eating in my spot.

The gods created this spot for me. It’s perfect. I have the sink to my right for easy disposal, the stove to the left for refill access – and a view of any shenanigans happening at the table or in the family room. The only thing that would make this better is a kitchen TV. But that’s just nuts. Or is it?

That’s my boy and his pal after a sleepover enjoying their pancakes. These are my boys leftovers. If you have kids you aren’t disgusted. You know that sometimes whole meals consist of what’s left on the kid’s plate. Another bonus to eating leftovers while standing up? Those calories somehow don’t count. Truth.

Do you have an eating nook? Or do you always eat nicely at the table with a folded napkin with your pinky up?

    Okay…totally “creepy” is the only way to describe the parallel lives that you and I are leading. At the risk of really scaring you…I may have to do an actual post on my kitchen, just for you, so that you can see what I mean….

    Oh yeah….I totally HAVE that teal/multi-color plate AND a corner TV in the kitchen. Just sayin’

    I have a kitchen TV. I love it. I’m confused at to why everyone does not have one. I actually watch TV standing in the kitchen…weird.
    I agree with you about the calories. I always tell people that unless a meal is consumed at a table while enjoying the company of those, the calories don’t count. (This covers food consumed at a desk or in your vehicle!)
