My favorite room

The room in our house (1) is our kitchen. Perhaps the kitchen is the most important room in many houses, but it’s particularly so in our house because it´s not only (2) but also the place (3) .

I have so many happy memories of times spent there:  ordinary daily events such as making breakfast on dark, cold winter morning for children (4) before sending them off to school; or special occasions such as family reunions or cooking holiday dinners. Whenever we have a party, people gravitate to the kitchen. It always ends up the fullest and noisiest room in the house.

So what does this special room look like? It’s pretty big but not huge. It’s big enough to have a good-sized rectangular table in the center, (5) . There is a large window above the sink looking out on two apple trees in the garden. There’s a big, old stove at one end and at the other end a wall with a huge bulletin board (6) , past, present, and future: a school photo of the kids; a postcard from aunt Chely, (7) to United States; the menu from a takeout Italian restaurant; an invitation to a wedding (8) ; a letter from a friend (9) for years. All our world is there for everyone to read!

The front door is seldom used in our house, only by strangers. All our friends use the back door, (10) they come straight into the kitchen and join in whatever is happening there. Without doubt, some of the happiest time of my life have been spent in our kitchen.
