Eyes of the beholder


Devoted food bloggers would rather be behind the lens than in front of it and I am no exception. Was fooling around with the camera this weekend (I'm a real social butterfly like that!) and took this picture (see above).

Yes I have a mirror in my kitchen! Its great entertainment :-D The apartments I've lived in have had such interesting kitchens! Back in Bombay, everything was custom-made. The apartments in grad school were old war horses - scarred by our collective culinary adventures. I cannot count the number of times I got carried away chatting with S and suddenly there was cloud of black soot wafting into the room. Lets just say I'm the burnt-smell consultant. Call me if you need me!

The current apartment is charming and I have gotten much advice about how to arrange the kitchen, most of which I have cheerfully ignored! In my apartment hunting days, I even came across a condo with no dishwasher in the kitchen but a mirror above the kitchen sink!!

I'd like to share this one with Ilva for the kitchen roundup!

Thanks Krithika!

Sandeepa - well said!!

BB - To be honest, I think the apartment manager person just wanted a washable surface behind the sink. The tenants got creative and decided it was a good opportunity for some me-time! My mirror story is longer and will save it for another time :-)
