I have a corner office (kitchen) with a view.
The bulk of my work is done at my desk (kitchen island).
Most of my work consists of
ART (AllRecipes Tweaking) renditions. Business in the office can be quite slow during the week, however, on the weekends it can be rather brisk (feeding a table of ten). My office assistant
(sous chef Grace - my avatar) enjoys working part time at the office. Just a short distance from my desk is a conference table (dining table) where memories are spoken and we say grace and we say ma'am. There are certificates of accomplishment on the wall
(apple crate labels and a rooster) along with an office motto.

The office decor is quite simple (mainly roosters, chickens and Fiesta Ware).
My office supply room (pantry) is well stocked with items (food staples) along with other items such as a paper cutter (meat slicer), a paper shredder (food processor) and a pencil sharpener (Chef's Choice knife
sharpener). My copy machine (wireless printer for copying AR recipes) works overtime. The ink pens (knives) - often used to sign (carve) signature (dishes) - and the pencil holder (Fiesta Ware canister to hold spoons and spatulas) sit close to my desk. The
bulletin board (refrigerator) is used for notes and appointments. My reference book (laptop computer) is kept nearby for quick references (AllRecipes).
The office cleaning service utilizes a Hoover vacuum (4 pound Chihuahua) by immediately cleaning the floor of paper scraps (food) and debris (crumbs), which accidentally fall to the floor.

Down the office hall and to the right is the day care room (grand-children's get-away), stocked well with books, games and videos. This room is also often used for customers patiently waiting to enter

My other office? Well, that is where my Chief Financial Officer (DW aka Nana and an excellent cook herself I might add) hangs out awaiting my days work while I'm in "my office" working on my
ART (AllRecipes Tweaking) renditions.
My Other Office
I have too many ART renditions to show (list) here but this has to be one of my favorites due to its versatility (as a stand-alone, its uses in other recipes, and they can be frozen).
I often wonder if anyone else enjoys working in their office (kitchen) as much as I do and has a favorite
