  • Mood:
It is *done*. My kitchen is now kosher for passover. My oven is clean. I've also run it for two hours at high heat. I scrubbed my stove grates, turned them over and heated them until they glowed. And then I covered the stove with aluminum foil. Extra-heavy foil. My counters were scrubbed and covered with more foil. This foil is extremely heavy and the edges are sharp. *Displays left hand, still rather bloody and festooned with bandaids*

I'd use shelf-paper but my formica is old and the glue absorbs and has to be scrubbed out. I'd use plastic countertops, but those have to be stored and I have no place to store them. So, foil it is.

My fridge and freezer have been emptied of chometz, cleaned and lined. My cupboards and drawers either have been emptied, relined and filled with pesach stuff or will be locked closed. My sink was scrubbed and we poured boiling water over it. (It's stainless steel. Had it been made of any other substance, I'd have had to have put in a plastic Pesach sink or lined it some other way.) I have a folding table I keep in the kitchen. It's very useful. I scrubbed it and I covered it with a tablecloth.

The floor needs to be washed and the rest of the house needs to be straightened up and the dining room table needs to be cleared, the pads put on and a clean tablecloth laid on top. I'm trusting in Jonathan to do that. The microwave is clean, and I'll kasher it on Sunday when I come home from the con.

I need to pack for the con. I'll do that in the morning, I think. I already have my nonperishable supplied packed in my food bag.

I am exhausted.
