The end of the first month of the new year is already coming to an end. It's amazing how quickly time is going by. I'm trying some new things out with the layout and bare with me as things get changed up.
As for the drum roll, the kitchen is "finished"! It definitely has that new kitchen feel, but does not really have a personality, it's very much a kitchen for any average kitchen remodeling company. I suppose that's what I get for looking through beautiful kitchen renovation books...I've learned my lesson.
But of course the best news is that I get to now cook (once all the cooking and baking supplies make their way back into their new cabinetry homes). Thus far I made some yellow cupcakes from a box (it was snowing, I got out of work early and could not muster up the courage to drive to the grocery store). I figure everyone knows what regular ol yellow cupcakes look like so I didn't bother to take a picture. Today I also got out of work early (I'm not doing it on purpose!) and my first stop before going home (okay, maybe my second, I went to the library first...) was to safeway where I bought the ingredients for the worlds easiest chili. At least I think so. Onion, green pepper, packet of mccormack (sp?) hot chili mix, can of black beans, can of dark red kidney beans, can of whole peeled tomatoes, and veggie crumbles (there's an entry somewhere on this blog about my chili). I know, not the most challenging of foods to jump back into the world of cooking but it's like getting back in shape- taking it slowly. But trust me, I plan on oodles more of cooking (or actually baking).
But first things first, getting a block of havarti for all this lettuce I bought:)
