My other Kitchen

Some time ago i got the idea for a summer Kitchen while glancing at the real estate pictures and captions touting summer kitchen in large beautiful mansions.  Come to find out their summer kitchens were every bit as large as my whole house.

To keep up with the neighborhood, we added a screened in porch with sliding glass doors by our bedroom and one thing led to another and before we knew it, we had ourselves a summer kitchen.

We didn't have to go through the house to make coffee:  we could make it in our summer kitchen and have our breakfast out on the screened in porch, watch the sun come up over our garden and shed,  We often linger for long stretches in our summer kitchen.

We got all the makings of a kitchen:  fridge, micro, TV, coffee maker, and a toaster.  We picked up an inexpensive cabinet from a big box store. What else do you need?

Needless to say, we enjoy our other kitchen:  we read the newspaper and an occasional book out there; we watch the red Cardinals flying about; and observe the squirrels chasing each other.

Thank you for visiting my blog.


  1. What a great idea of a summer kitchen. You have all the benefits of a kitchen and the lovely porch to enjoy the outdoors.

  2. Thank you for visiting. A summer kitchen is neat to have but we have not had breakfast there yet--the weather is not cooperating.
