Signs of a Real Cook

*Flakes of garlic skin can be found under or behind the canister set.

*A baking sheet that's so used and stained it looks like it's camouflaged.

*A utensil canister can be found near the stove (stuffed with 2 or more regular spatulas, wooden spoons, tongs, silicone spatula, whisk, etc.)

*An open and used container of Comet or Bartender's Friend stored under the sink.

*Four or more different brands of Balsamic Vinegar is in the cupboard.

Only 3 balsamic vinegars!

*Never a time when all of the dishes, pots & pans, and utensils are clean at one time
*Could pass for a survivalist based on the amount of food you keep in your house
*The door of the fridge contains condiments needed to cook/serve food from just about every ethnic group you can imagine
*No matter how much you clean, the family dog can find something interesting to smell, if not eat, on the kitchen floor

Does that count by the stove or in all the cupboards and fridge, too?

The condiments? I was only counting in the fridge. Oils? only counting the ones I cook with that are open! Not the ones I've missed scrubbing from the side of the stove! Off the top of my head? Hmmm ... Maybe it's time for a shampoo!
