Uh, no thanks... I'll take my modern kitchen with its appliances and plenty of counter and cupboard space. Looking at the sparse kitchens of old makes me wonder how on earth family recipes ever got made in the first place, let alone passed down from generation to generation! I don't see the microwave here, do you? Ok, let's call this one 'Before Lowe's'.... definitely BEFORE Lowe's or Home Depot!!
