  1. Maybe I’m just dense, but I don’t understand the theme of this meme.

    Are you trying to say that in these kitchens you’re able to do these things? For example, the second one. Does that mean you’re able to cook a family dinner in mom’s or LittleSis’ kitchen as well as your own?

    I agree, it’s a little confusing what’s going on in this post. But I’m guessing you’re trying to describe your own comfort level with all of the different kitchens you’ve listed.

    I’m surprised you’re so lost in FameThrowa’s kitchen. Is that because it’s a new kitchen??

    I once went to a vegetarian restaurant run by monks and you could actually hear the chanting in the kitchen.

    Mmmm …. Swiss Chalet. If we do our July trip as planned, only six months to go until I get some magic SC dipping sauce.

  3. ok, i want o know where this monk vegetarian restaurant is. i would totally be into that.

    i tend to make myself comfortable in anyone’s kitchen and will help myself to water, tea, food, etc after the first visit and i have had the chance to scope out where everything is.

  4. Hm…smokingtoaster lives in San Francisco so I assume that this is not the place she had in mind. I’m up for a field trip but I am wary of vegetarian restaurants – in the past it just hasn’t been my thing. How do you feel about pubs?

      You’re right. It was a restaurant somewhere in Sydney (Australia). I couldn’t think of the right word when I was posting, so I said “monks”, but I meant “Hari Krishna’s”. No offense intended. The restaurant in the link definitely looks like it has the same vibe, though.

      Pub, eh? I wouldn’t have pegged you for a pub girl, Lynn. On my next trip to Ottawa, I expect a pub crawl!
