Dishwasher Aroma

You know you've been eating extremely well when you open up the dishwasher to cram in one last item before the wash cycle begins, only to find it smells so delicious in there, you are almost tempted to lick the plates clean instead.

    Yep, mine just smelled like bacon. What did you make? I want my dishwasher to smell good too!

    So funny! And so true! I always love the smell of dirty dishes when we've just feasted on garlicky pasta ...

    I think garlic might indeed be the key.

    I think in my case it was Tuesday night's dinner when I had marinated some grass fed, locally raised lamb riblets overnight in red wine vinegar, shallots, parsley, garlic, hot sauce, olive oil salt and pepper and maybe something else I can't recall now. I had first seared the outside of those riblets on the BBQ and then slow cooked them, covered, in the oven, for a couple of hours, in the left over marinade plus a cup of dry white wine. I think it must have that combination that that made my dishwasher smell so delicious.

    I thought this was going to be a post on cooking food in your dishwasher.

    Instead I'm slightly disgusted and yet hungry... :)

    I've noticed the same thing! One of my favorite moments is when I come into the kitchen from upstairs or outside an hour or so after dinner and tbink, "man, it smells great in here. Whoever lives here sure is eating well . . . oh, wait, that's me!"

    I wish this would happen to me! Unfortunately, our small NYC apartment doesn't have a dishwasher, so the only thing I smell if I leave dishes for the next day is the nasty-arse smell of old sauce/food mixed with soapy water. And then I'm depressed b/c I'd love to just press a button and the dishes be done, but instead it's dishpan hands again! It's not quite appetizing and actually puts me off eating. I can't wait for the day when we have a dishwasher!!

    So, all of you, whenever you have a minute, give your dishwasher a hug and a kiss. Especially if it smells as nice nice! - amy @ http://www.weareneverfull.com

    Sam--I'm getting pedantic only because the lovely cheesemaker uses musical terms as names for all her products, and her company is Andante, not Adante. Envy you the taste of that butter; it must be especially sweet now that it is spring.

    i think i eat really well, but my dishwasher always smells like ass! maybe that a good thing, because it indicates what a varied and interesting diet i have? or maybe dishwashers are just supposed to smell like ass, and yours was an aberration.

    You crack me up! I thought you were talking about that nasty, dirty dish rags smell that you sometimes get from not-so-clean wine glasses. So glad you weren't.
