Are you obsessive?

Sometimes I feel that I’m possessed by obsession. And more often than not, IT follows me to the kitchen. Each time I finish a part of the menu I am cooking up, I do the dishes, wipe them, clear the place, put everything back, wipe the counters…& then begin the next bit. My knives have to be in the right place, the right knife has to be used for the right thing. I will not slice tomatoes till I find my serrated slicer, I worship my microplaner, my santuko is the only thing that slices my grilled chicken … & I’m the mistress of the kitchen. So much so, that when I chop, each piece should be the same size. The saving grace is that I’m pretty quick with the cutting, chopping and clearing up, otherwise we would have a ‘singing for the supper’ happening every night!

Things are slowly changing, & now I have company. The daughter is growing up, & she’s the regular teen with her head in the clouds. My knives are misplaced; my favourite non-stick is where I can’t find it, the ketchup is out & the cupboard is open … SIGH!! Sometimes I wish I was more chilled out, but it's not happening yet!

Wonder if I'm alone in this obsession; are you in there with me?

OMG, when I was like your daughter and before marrying, I was like her :P Didn't care. I did what I wanted and cooked how and what I wanted.

After marrying A, I end up cleaning obsessively after him. He thinks he can clean it all once he finishes for the WHOLE day. Can you believe that? And the cupboard door being open - GETS TO ME!!

I totally understand where you're coming from as I am the same as you. I can't cook if my kitchen is not tidy, clean and organized. Everything has its place. I have TWO daughters whose heads are in the clouds! I am hoping this is a phase!!

Thanks for the flying the same flag ladies...makes me feel relieved. Gives me hope that open cupboards might shut, & that maybe the clouds will clear one day!! LOL!

I'm not clean or anything, but I'm obsessive over ingredients! I always go crazy thinking about changing up one ingredient to see what will happen.
