My hidden talent

I have a hidden talent...my motto is, "there is always room for one more dish!" Does anyone else do this? These pictures are examples from two days this week. I mean, this is truly an art people! You need to strategicly place the tall plates and the cutting board on the edge so they can support the larger pots/pans leaning against them on the top of the pile. My talent is also well applied to dishwashers (did I mention that we are WITHOUT a dishwasher while in Korea?...boo hoo). My husband does not share this passion. He would much rather get out a towel and shorten the stack than try to find that perfect balance. Are you a stacker?

hysterical! I am delighted to know that other people share my passion to get the maximum number of dishes stacked!

Although we do have a dishwasher (sorry), but I still do the balancing stacking thing with the bigger items that have to get washed by hand.

Too funny...!

Too funny. Currently on my dish drainer I have one plate, three knives, one skillet, one pot, two muffin tins, one milk container awaiting recycling, the highchair tray, and the huge bowl that goes with my Kitchenaide mixer. I also decided to leave the lids to the pans for the next load rather than get out a towel and actually dry something, so yes, I think I am a stacker!

Oh yes! I am the ultimate stacker with lots of practice from all my early years without a dishwasher. It really is an art.

Very impressive! We have a dishwasher but hand wash a fair amount. We haven't had a dish drainer in years. Duncan thought it got too yucky too quickly, so we just put the dishes on a towel laid out on the counter. And yes, they are stacked!

I'm definitely a stacker! It puts those physics classes to good use!

So nice to know I'm not the only one to takes such pleasure in this artform! That and making lists--rewriting them if I'm not pleased with my handwriting--with at least a few things I've already accomplished on them...I like written encouragement, what can I say?! :-P

I'm definitely a stacker. I didn't get a dishwasher after all these years, but I did get bigger sink, which makes stacking even funnier.
