I am possibly the world's messiest cook. I am not tidy by nature, but I am looking for ways to improve my ways in the kitchen. I usually end the making of a meal with a sink full of dishes, the counters cluttered & dirty, cupboards open, and a full, dirty dishwasher. I have heard of mis en place, but wonder if there is an actual method? I hope this isn't a dumb question! But, any info, no matter how rudimentary, would be helpful.
The kitchen is such a disaster that my husband wakes up and cleans it the next am -- leaving stuff out (not the actual food, of course) all night, which makes even me nuts.
Thanks in advance!
