Do you put everything away before you sit down to eat?
Everything from the fridge and pantry that you used to cook? What about cleaning all the pots and pans and knives before you sit down to eat? My husband sometimes points out (it’s really a criticism in my opinion) that I left things on the counter, or that I should clean as I go. Since he doesn’t cook often I find his comments obnoxious and controlling. Thank goodness he is not like that most of the time.
I do clean as I go to some extent, but just not completely if I am preparing a fairly big meal. Maybe some people do it? I like my food to be hot when I eat it, so I sit down when it is ready. His mom tends to let food sit and then reheats it if necessary. It’s good in the sense that she always has food ready, but I never have been one to do that; at least not often.
What is typical for you? Make a mess and then clean up after you’re done eating? Clean as you go? A combination?
