My grandmother lived a life filled with kinetic energy: either there was no power to run kitchen appliances, there were no appliances or she was just very frugal when it came to using resources. My mother had best of both worlds. She’s toiled as a young land and earned enough to live a life of decent comforts. I’m probably a spoilt brat. I need my food processor, chopper, mixer-grinder and microwave even when I don’t tend to cook too often. So this mini kitchen is totally me in all regard!
