We moved into our new house this week. All day yesterday I unpacked boxes only to take a break to pull some weeds from the overgrown garden. (I discovered a rosemary plant! Hooray!) As of today I still can’t find our cutlery or my blender or food processor. Good thing we have some old forks and spoons to tide us over until they show up. I’ve been way too busy and/or stressed to cook so I’ve mostly been living off take out pizza, hummus and pita, easy egg and pasta dishes and salads. Creativity will return once I’m feeling more settled. Instead of a recipe, all I can manage today is to leave you with a picture of my new kitchen (taken before we moved in).
Notice the double oven? I’m not sure I’ll use it much, if ever, but I’m grateful for the luxury. However, if I had to choose something I love most about my new kitchen, other than the island, which I’ve never had before, is a beautiful stained glass window over the kitchen table (sorry it’s not in the picture). It’s done in shades of white to look like flowing seaweed. It was made for a friend of ours whose house this was and it’s simply dreamy!
Next week I’ll post a picture of one of the easy, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants dinners I’ve been making that turned out pretty amazing. I’d post it tonight but of course the cord I need to download photos is still missing. How I love moving!
So tell me, what do you love most about your kitchen?
Linked up Food on Friday at Ann Kroeker because no where else would I likely find a blog to accept a post that’s only kind of about food. Thanks Ann for your ‘almost anything goes’ policy!
