If I were clever and had time, I'd put a link here to my post from January (or February) about going paperless in the kitchen, to set the stage for this post and this question. But in January we went paperless in the kitchen... no more paper towels or paper napkins. And I haven't said much about it because, honestly, it's been kind of a non-issue transition. We use dish towels and cloth napkins and have a little hamper in the pantry to toss them in for laundering. It's had pretty much zero impact on our laundry process because, really, how hard is it to throw a little hamper of kitchen towels in with the bath towels? Answer: not hard. At all.
The only *issue* has been my friend, who does not read this blog, so I am safe to talk about this. But my friend HATES the fact that I have no paper towels. It drives her nuts.
This is a good friend, who is very comfortable in my home and comes over a lot. We eat dinner here a lot and she knows her way around my kitchen.
So she came over this weekend with a six-pack of paper towels and tossed them in my pantry. I laughed and didn't make an issue of it. She did it in a half-joking way, but I KNOW that she is irked by me never having paper towels in the kitchen when she comes over.
So you tell me... rude? Not rude?
