Cast your vote and it is a contest!



So, fireman thinks you are my pretend friends, and we know that is the best kind right? Well dear blogfriend knitters, I've been thinking. Since the kitchen will be completed just DAYS before Christmas, and since I am hosting Christmas brunch........I think there should be no cooking in the kitchen until Christmas. After all, it will never be cleaner . Why clean twice?

Cast your vote: Cook before Christmas or Wait until Christmas.

Your vote does not influence your eligibility for prize yarn. I swear.

Contest ends 12/23.


I talk more in the comments!

WAIT till Christmas to cook! Then it'll be clean AND it'll be a gift to cook in the new kitchen AND a gift to eat the first meal prepared in the new kitchen!

Wait until Christmas but run the oven before just in case it has the never been used yucky smell....

Cheryl said...

Excellent idea to leave it clean for Christmas! You've survived this long without the kitchen - what's a few more days??

(I agree though with the comment about turning the oven on before - they do often have that yucky first run smell)

Karen said...

No doubt in my mind - DO NOT COOK UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!!! Seriously. Enjoy that pristine kitchen on Christmas day. :)

Wait until Christmas!!!

I myself would wait until Christmas. Love the kitchen

Isn't eating raw the new big health craze? Tell Fireman you're giving it a try and see what he says. He'll probably want to eat out every night until Christmas!

PS - tell him I'm not pretend, since we've met in person!

Karen said...

Wait until Christmas! I do agree with lighting the oven ahead of time though.

definetly do not cook - in fact never cook again. go out, get take out, order in, whatever it takes.

p.s. i never cook

Don't wait until Christmas- you want to make sure everything in the kitchen works before it is important!

Patt said...

I say WAIT, but test it all out, too. Make sure everything works right. Does that make sense? Wait, but don't?!

Wait till Christmas!

Katherine said...

Love it! I've never heard a better reason not to cook. I vote to wait but maybe check to make sure the stove, microwave, dishwasher etc. all work. Discovering that they don't would sure put a crimp in Christmas brunch.

Marguerite said...

Wait but be sure to test everything out ahead of time. Not sure how you do all that testing without cooking, so maybe I'm saying you should actually cook something.

You are stronger than me. When we finally got to use our new kitchen, which was supposed to be ready by Thanksgiving and wasn't, I couldn't wait to cook.

We always have Christmas dinner at our house and after missing Thanksgiving I was ready for the smell of fresh baked rolls, pies, cakes, cookies, etc.

Cook! Your kitchen is beautiful! I would love to work in there if it was my kitchen :-)

You also might be able to try some new recipes for the Christmas brunch

Absolutely - wait till Christmas - no sense in cleaning twice - cuts into knitting time!!!LOL

Betsy said...

I vote for you to wait until Christmas but I think you should test things out first just to make sure they all work and you're not surprised.

Grace said...

definitely wait until Christmas to cook but just test everythng to make sure it works!!!

What is a couple more days of no cooking

Its looking really good!

Sue said...

Wait!!!

me said...

Wait and cook on christmas, perhaps with a bottle of bubbly to "chrisen" it, like a ship in England - give the kitchen a proper entrance and celebration before cooking can officially begin..perhaps even a ribbon cutting! (plus you can knit while you're not cooking this week!!!)
