It’s surely not the visually appealing glamorous and tasty side having to clean up the kitchen. You often have a kitchen mess to clean up, whether you have guests over for dinner or not. And someone has to clean it all up. If you don’t have an automatic dishwasher to help out then you have to do it all by hand which does take some time. Fortunate for me I have a bit of patience to do it by hand, I’ve been doing it since I was a kid.
Sometimes a friend coming over excited to try you cooking, feels a bit guilty leaving you with a mess to clean up all the dishes, pots and pans. The thing for me is, it’s much easier If I clean it up after, as much as I may enjoy them helping out. Despite it all, I still enjoy cleaning up my kitchen mess after making a meal vs going out for dinner. More than often I just turn on one of my many interesting Podcasts and listen away while I mindlessly wash the dishes.
