"I wanted something fresh and colorful and food related for the kitchen."
Hello, Cure-takers! After a flood of emails and photos in the first few weeks, things have been a little quiet. Nary a peep from you in a few days, so we're sending up a hallo and a flare to see how things are going for you. (Maybe you're so busy scrubbing your kitchens and sharpening your knives you haven't had a moment to check in!) Where are you at in the Cure, and are you feeling good about your progress so far? There are 831 of you signed up — we'd love to hear from you all right here!
Another shot of jkdmb03's new picture: We usually hang seasonal stuff in this spot over the table but this is a good year-round picture that really brightens the space nicely. It's pretty much the first thing you see now when you walk in the door too.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sent photos and stories from their Kitchen Cure so far. Your sharing really makes this an inspirational event! Please continue to send us reports and photos as the Cure progresses; we are looking forward to sharing them here.
And if you are struggling to follow along, no worries! The Kitchen Cure is to help YOU get YOUR kitchen in a more pleasant state. We all have dark corners and challenges in our kitchens, and these six weeks are designed to help you get some of those cleared away and also to give you inspiration to start fresh in your cooking for spring. Take what you need and leave the rest. But we'd love to hear from you and see how it's going!
