@MichaelT Cooking posts? Do share, I always enjoy some good cooking ideas.
 
I used to do a fair bit of cooking for myself. I'm going to say my former employer made that difficult (the stress of get home -> I don't even want to think, much less think about cooking).
And I've gotta redo the kitchen some day - the workflow for the stations isn't right.
 
@MichaelT I know exactly how that goes. My wife and I both cook quite a bit but sometimes it's just too much work or stress if we're moving or when the kid was younger etc. We've been doing a lot more cooking again lately though.
 
Current layout of the kitchen:
+–––––––+––––––+––––––+–––––––––––––+
|frid   |      | sink |        micro|
|       |      |      |        wave |
+–––––––+––––––+––––––+–––––––––––––+
|                                   |
|                                   |
|                                   |
|        +–––––+                    |
|        |stove|                    |
|        |     |                    |

@MichaelT Yeah - this is key, I learned after having one or two apartments that just didn't have enough counter space that I'll never cook because the amount of effort if I don't make sure everywhere I live has enough space
 
Stove has no counters next to it.

@MichaelT yeah, need more counters. that right there is nowhere near enough
 
The stove should be where the microwave is. And if you look at the house, it was there originally.
 
need an island
 
Too small for an island.
 
ah, yeah that makes it tricky
 
There's a vent + fan above the microwave to the outside.
With a gas hookup below... and a water hookup for the ice maker below the stove.

@MichaelT RE: Sauteed Chicken - just missing butter + lemon juice + garlic salt
 
Former owner, when they put the dishwasher in put it under where the microwave is for some reason - and moved the stove.
I did a lot of cooking with tin-foil for awhile.

At the conclusion of a presentation, Jinyu was approached by several of her abbots. One said, “In your talk you mentioned the Four Types of Meeting Attendee. What are these?” Jinyu counted off on her fingers: “Those who come to inform, those who come to learn, those who come to be dutiful, and those who come to be noticed.” A second abbot nodded his head, sa
