When my mom comes to visit, it never fails that she’ll remark about just how many dishes I use to make a meal. (Probably partly because when she’s here, she usually ends up doing the dishes for me!)
It’s true – I do use a lot of dishes when I cook. Even though I don’t use a bunch of gadgets, I still somehow end up with a plethora of dirty mixing bowls, pans, and knives every time I cook. And I used to go to bed most nights with dirty dishes in the sink.
