Kitchen Tour


Over at Kelly's, she is having a "Kitchen Tour." I thought I would participate because I wanted to share and encourage all the mommy's way younger than me and as they begin their families. The Lord has blessed us with 13 children and our kitchen is very much "used." Its a place where we share meals, laugh, prepare and do canning from our acre garden, its a place where one of my daughters pasteurizes milk for her goat kids, a place where we grind wheat and make bread and do our school work, our kitchen may be a little out of date but it is filled with fun, joy and alot of beautiful noise!!

These are "my" tools," a wheat grinder, a Bosch mixer, a Kitchen Aid Food processor
and a Viking mixer......

We have two 8' tables and a beautiful computer desk that we are blessed with!!!

Since we have two sets of twin boys, why not two coffeee pots and two friges....we really need these for our family size...we actually have a 3rd refrig. outside!!!! Lots of food around here!!!!

Someone gave us the black oven but how thankful I am.....we use it up!!!!

Now looking on into the living room area, between those two brown chairs, that can get a little crowded with so many people checking out the computer.....

Thanks for stopping by and know that And by knowledge shall all the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches......Prov.24:4 We are "rich!!!"

The blue is really fun! I love blue. Check out my turquoise obsession :-)

That is a very blue countertop. What I really like about your kitchen is it reminds me of a kitchen that takes care of lots of people. While my childhood kitchen did not look like yours it takes me back to my childhood. Man, I would love some lemonade!

Thank you, Cindy! Your kitchen is great! I realized that people wouldn't be able to see the wood ceiling over the table so I posted another picture that shows it better. Hope you are having a wonderful Friday!!!

I really liked your kitchen as soon as I saw the pictures but after I read your post it made me LOVE your kitchen.

You have some wonderful kitchen tools, Cindy!

Thanks for your compliments on my kitchen! I really enjoy seeing yours too because I am in total awe in admiration of a mother of 13!! I had your family in my prayer journal for quite awhile during your loss of your precious son and hope that time (and the Lord) is slowly starting to heal the pain of your loss. I can't imagine how hard it must have been. Blessings to your beautiful family!

My husband is the oldest of 12 (no goats there though)- so I know how busy your kitchen is! My mother in law too is a big fan of her wheat grinder and Bosch...she raised her boys on lots of delicious homemade wheat bread!!
