For the past week or so we’ve been in the process of ‘transitioning dishwashers’. That fancy talkin’ means we bought a new dishwasher, tore the old one out, and have left the new dishwasher sitting in the middle of the kitchen until we get around to installing it.
In the meantime, I’ve been doing dishes by hand. This is a bit of a novelty since I actually have a cool dish drainer from IKEA that I hardly ever get to use. Usually it hangs on a nail in the basement, but this week it has been called to duty.
Put an ugly stained cookie sheet underneath the drainer to catch water and we are good to go. (My mom has one of those absorb-y mats and loves it.)
We could live like this for weeks, and probably will.
