camp kitchen

I snapped a few pictures of my camp kitchen so you can get an idea of where we are storing and preparing our food while the new kitchen is being built. Our dining room is about 8 feet by 10 feet. We took the dining room table and chairs out, and moved the refrigerator and a couple of small tables in. We moved my computer in, also, because it lived in the kitchen. It will have to find a new home (not the kitchen and not the dining room) when the reno is finished.

This is where we cook. We have a microwave and a toaster oven on a little table. Behind it is my cookbook shelf. The vitamins are on that shelf, wedged in between the books for now.
Here's some of our food, and our coffee maker and toaster oven, on what was once Andy's computer desk. The platforms for the monitor and printer come in handy for appliances and food containers.

Our dishes and foods are in rubbermaid tubs on the floor. We wash our dishes in the laundry tub in the basement. We are getting along pretty well so far, mostly because we are creative, and have good senses of humour, and it has been just a few days so far.

The good news is that the electrician came this evening and did all the work that needs to be done before the wallboard can start going up. This wonderful wiring will not show, but it will give us beautiful under-cupboard LED lights to illuminate our counters. It will also make it so we don't flip a circuit breaker every time we accidentally use the microwave and the coffee maker at the same time. TA DAH!

question: where is the weirdest place you have put a microwave oven?
