Re: GFI outlets on same circuit
Just put a GFI breaker on the circuit going to the kitchen. Then you don't have to worry about the way the outlets are wired. As I recall, GFI breakers are about double the cost of an outlet-style GFI.
You should NOT put a GFI on the refrigerator or freezer.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
