We finally got to showing you our kitchen, and as soon as that post went live, our dishwasher stared getting fussy. Really fussy. It’s working, but who knows how well and for how long. We hopped over to Target to get our hands on a Rubbermaid dish rack because we were not prepared for the hand-washing dishes party to start just quite yet. Also, we just won a really amazing mug that needs special care.
It fit nicely next to our sink, above the dishwasher and wasn’t an eye sore at all. It actually matches our kitchen, which is bonus. So bonus. I decided to do a little “dishwashing inventory” as I allowed my tougher dishes and pots battle with our unruly dishwasher, I carefully cared for my more precious pieces and washed them by hand and lovingly drained them on a proper rack instead of just plopping them on a dish-towel or baby bottle grass-y drain like we had been doing before.
I had recently won a pretty amazing pour over and mug and have been staring at it’s amazingness and treating it like a puppy that could suffer from broken bones if the wind blew too hard. It’s my mug. It holds my coffee (aka “mommy milk”), and it’s painfully cute. I don’t want it to get ruined. It’s the object below with the eyes on it. You think it’s cool too. I know you do.
Anyway, I thought I would only use the rack for my precious mug until we got a fix on the dishwasher, but in my little experiment I learned I have a lot more kitchenware that needed extra love than I thought. The bunny bento for Atlas which is made of steal and would be so sad if his face rubbed off, so we wash it by hand. My cutting boards, hand carved ladles, raw porcelain measuring spoons, pottery from the Smoky Mountains, and baby food maker all are pieces I care about and treat like little treasures.
