Here's one that should be easy for all of you. For most of us, the kitchen is the hub of our activities. So show me what's in your kitchen that's important to you.

This could be your refrigerator or something in it. It might be a special knife set, a favorite cooking implement. Or the result of a recipe that you and your family
especially enjoy. Maybe the kitchen is where your kids sit while they do their homework . Or perhaps you have a favorite kitchen drawer that holds recipes, coupons
or notes you've already forgotten. The kitchen possibilities are limitless.

Post it, and get extra credit for the stories that go along with the photo.

This challenge is limited to 3 entries per photographer. The deadline will be early in the morning EST October 15th.

So get to work! :D

August was the end of peach season for us. This summer, Wally and I enjoyed Peach Cobbler, fresh peaches for breakfast, and most of all, this peach
pie because it marked the end of the season.

Image

Our refrigerator, just like my handbags, expands to the maximum space allowed by its size. (It's one of those Murphy Laws!) :shock:

Wow, that is one clean refrigerator and no leftovers!! :lol:

A king size Hershey bar, Edy's ice cream ( cookies & cream?) and what appears to be a pilsner in the veggie drawer...looks eerily familiar. :roll:

It's a jungle out there ...

The Orange "tree" spends the summer outdoors but comes in for the winter. Today was the day my wife brought it in. It's beginning to outgrow it's favourite corner of the kitchen ...

Apologies for the offensive language featured in this post (it has a fun story behind it which is why I put it in pride of place) but let me know if it needs taking down.

This is our fridge, with a healthy collection of magnets obtained from our travels around the world.

If you click the photo it will take you through to my Flickr stream where you can read what each magnet is by hovering over them:

Thanks, Paul. I like the cute little knitted bird and pillow, and the plant seem to do very well in that spot!

Timmy, LOL! So cute...and they even LINK!

Thunder...and everyone else, this is an easy challenge. You don't even need to go outdoors! Just look around your kitchen, post a shot....and tell me about it. Thanks for your participation!

Welcome back, Lazarus! As long as you can charge that battery in less than 5 days, you'll be in plenty of time! :lol:

I actually found it quite depressing as a sign of how little I've used my camera lately that both batteries in the D300 have had time to go dead,

I picked the knives on my kitchen counter, basically because they are one of the first things I ever bought when I moved out. I've got better knives in the drawers but these ones still have the position on the counter. Had them for years now which isn't bad for a $12 knife set.
Plus with black kitchen counters, they worked well for a photo (although I did wet the benches first to give them the glossy look)

At the bottom of the garden we have an apple tree (Bramley's Seedlings). In the front garden we have another apple tree that we get lovely sweet eating apples from, but the back garden apples are purely for cooking. This is the only tree that we got apples from this year. We had continual rain throughout summer and so much less insects flying around. No insects = no pollination and as such the Uk has had a poor harvest this time round (I understand it's a similar story elsewhere in the world). I think the Bramley's blossom slightly earlier than normal, so we managed to get some apples although no where near as many as usual. These are now in a bag in my Kitchen:

The good thing about apples is we don't really need to do anything with them. They just grow and we go and pick them, then we give them away to family, friends and neighbours. My Mum came over this week to pick up a big bagful (she's going to make a load of chutneys to sell for her church) and whilst she was here, put her skills to use and made us a pie:

Image
Mum's Apple Pie by Tim.Garlick, on Flickr

She also cooked dinner and made a big vat of vegetable soup for us to freeze and use over winter. We also gave some apples to friends of ours who enjoy baking. I was recently given a butter-nut squash and apple cake (made with the same apples) in return and have been promised another apple pie or perhaps a crumble when they get round to more baking. I'm really very fond of my apple trees :)

Oh nearly forgot; my mum also brought us some flowers for the kitchen table whilst she was here:

Aren't Mum's great?

Edit: Oops. just realised that takes me over the 3 entries allowed. Oh well, I was never really one to abide by the rules anyway..

This wine opener stand has been on the kitchen counter since 1982 and I can honestly say it has never failed!

The morning sun drowns the counter in sunlight for a good morning cup of coffee? Nah it's an illusion, I don't drink coffee it is tea and it's a 45 watt flood not the sun.

Winner Light Cafe

Paul, thanks for getting this challenge started. I enjoyed seeing the bright corner of your kitchen, and the plant obviously likes the sunshine, too!

Lazarus, when I saw the knives I immediately thought of The Eagles' Hotel California and the steely knives that "…just won't kill the beast" They are in excellent shape and look new!

Timmy. loved your apples, flowers and refrigerator magnets. Nice job with them all.

Phil, thanks for showing us the really cool wine opener. Obviously made to last through many, many bottles of wine. Also, the non-natural light and tea pot instead of coffee. You could have fooled me. The turkey looks delicious. You need to tell the friends/relatives to bring an additional onethis year!

And the winner is...
TIMMY FOR HIS MAGNETS!
They held my attention the longest, and each told its own story.

Runner-up is...:
Lazarus, and his pointy steely knives

Thanks to all who participated in the kitchen challenge.

Tim, the next contest is on you!

Oh wow look at that! I didn't expect to win this one (I really liked Laz's knives).

Good entries everyone and excellent subject for a challenge Patrish!

Ok, I'll post a new challenge tomorrow. I have a couple of ideas, just need to decide which one to go with.

Thanks all!
