Wrapping up Kitchen Week on a Strong Note

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,
Happy Friday! We are wrapping up our week in the kitchen. How does your kitchen look? Even if you did not do all of the Zone Missions, even doing a couple of them will help you. We started with the counter tops, hit the hot spots, cleaned out the fridge, and decluttered a cabinet or drawer,
Today we are going to finish up by wiping down the stove top and wiping out the microwave. For some of you, this will be an easy task, so if you missed any of the other missions, pick one of those, too.
If your microwave is really yucky, put water in a coffee cup. Fill it halfway. Add a squirt of lemon. Set the microwave for 30 seconds to 60 seconds. This will steam the stuck on foods. You can then wipe with a wet purple cloth or any other wet cloth. If it is really bad, you might have to do this twice.
Stove tops can be easy or tricky. My stove top is a flat top cooking surface. It is easy to clean. Some of you have electric elements or gas stove tops. Those take longer and have more details. Whichever you have, set your timer and do the best you can.
In the summer, I do not clean my oven since the self-clean cycle is really hot. I do it in the winter. I do watch for drips and spills and try to take care of them when the oven is cool.
If you did not check under your sink this week, I want you to spend 5 minutes checking on what is under there. Declutter and make sure you don’t have any small leaks. This is a preventative measure for you.
Make plans for Family Fun Day tomorrow and have a wonderful weekend!
Today’s Zone Mission is to wipe your stove top and wipe out the microwave.

Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.

My menu plan for Friday is chicken alfredo.

Have a wonderful weekend!
