Kitchen and Food: Things to Consider

The kitchen is the center of the home. Nothing is more vital to housekeeping than food. Kitchen work takes more of a homemaker’s time than any other housekeeping task.
What can you do now to prepare for all of that? Here are some things to consider.
Kitchen and Food: Things to Consider


Areas to Consider

  • Cooking skills
  • Food management knowledge and skills (like shopping, storage, and meal planning)
  • Recipes and meal plans
  • Dietary needs and food preferences
  • Healthy cooking and eating
  • Eating style (meal times, formality, etc.)
  • Kitchen culture (routines, management style, etc.)
  • Cooking style (how much cooking from scratch, for example?)
  • Food safety
  • Kitchen tools/linens
  • Dining room or area/dishes/linens
  • Building your pantry (either before the wedding or prepping to do it afterwards)


Questions to Consider

  • What will we eat?
  • What do we like?
  • Where will we eat?
  • When will we eat?
  • What will our food budget be?
  • What facilities/appliances will we have?
  • How much time will be available for meal preparation and clean up?
  • Who will shop/cook/clean up?
  • What dishes, pots and pans, tools, linens, and other goods do we need?
  • Where will we get our food?
  • How will we store our food?
  • What do I know how to make?


And don’t worry, every bride (unless you’ve already been there, done that, and become an expert) will burn dinner, or otherwise ruin some food. It’s normal. 😉
