Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Along the lines of the "broken window" theory, I think that a dirty dish sitting out, on the counter or in the sink, is an invitation for a bigger mess.

I'm with you. When I'm prepping the meal, I don't like others in the kitchen or trying to help. I find they get in the way even though we have a good size kitchen. Also hate dirty stuff sitting out. I clean as I go.

When I was cohabiting, I felt the same way. I sometimes clean some as I go, but many times I empty whats left in one side of the sink (I have a double) the next morning, while the French press coffee is brewing.

About to start a slow-braise lamb shank stew. The prep and cooking areas are ship shape.

So true. I have my poor family terrorized. Everyone expects obsessive, arbitrary, and dictatorial policies and procedures on a boat, not so much in your house.

My across-the-hall neighbor in Brooklyn also liked to do a fair amount of cooking. He was of the belief that a kitchen should be as clean, or cleaner, after finishing cooking a meal. I'm pretty much the same, though I'll let a pan or two soak while eating and then clean them afterwards.

Ha. Along those lines, one of my goals this year is to spend enough time that I have a similar familiarity, workflow, and persnickety approach in the woodworking shop.

Mrs. GeneJockey seems to think that putting a dish in the sink and running water into it means she's done her bit. "It's soaking!", even if it didn't even really need rinsing before putting in the dishwasher. And that belief has infected The Boys. And that leads to the dirty dish/broken window, and the next thin you know, the counter is piled high with dirty dishes.

The result of this is that whoever's supposed to make dinner looks at the kitchen and despairs instead of making dinner.
