I really like to cook.
I’ll spend hours making a recipe from scratch.
The problem is, it gets really hot in my new kitchen in our new house, especially in the winter with the central heater going. As much as I like to cook, I don’t like to sweat unless I am getting paid. So, I turn the thermostat on the central heater down when I am cooking, but someone in the house inevitably turns it back up again. Really, is it so hard to just put on a sweatshirt and socks? Especially when I am slaving over a gourmet dinner that everyone will enjoy. There is no room in the kitchen for a fan, unless I get my husband to install a ceiling fan, but who puts a ceiling fan in the kitchen? The kitchen is just too small and the window isn’t big enough for a fan. I’ve even considered putting an air conditioner in the window, but, of course, one wouldn’t fit either. I guess I could try a portable air conditioner, but, again, there is no room in the kitchen. The kitchen is warm in the summer too, but it gets especially hot in the winter with the central heater going. I’ve decided to just start opening the window when I am cooking during the winter. I don’t know if it makes the central heater kick in more, but, at this point, I don’t care. I just don’t like being hot and if they want to continue to enjoy their gourmet dinners, I need to cool off the kitchen.
