I've been away from my kitchen lately. Too busy to cook and certainly no time to blog! Anyone want to guess what I've been up to?
I've been PAINTING...and cleaning....and packing. Last Friday we got the keys to our new house! We spent the weekend doing some repairs, priming, painting, and scrubbing.
Check out the new kitchen! (I should note that these were taken before the previous owners moved out. This is their furniture and "stuff" in the pics)
I'm gonna do some serious damage in here! With all of the room to move around and the increased work space...it makes me want to do a little "happy dance" every time I look at it. I'm sure that this exuberance may wear off once I start cleaning and polishing all of this extra space...
Here's the view into the family room from the kitchen. Please pardon the photo, this one came from a real estate site advertising the home.
I'm diggin' the countertops!
So that's where I have been. We will be moved completely in less than 2 weeks so I'll be pretty busy making preparations this week and next. Plus, I have to pack up and then UN-pack my whole kitchen. YIKES! Until we get settled in, my crock pot is my new best friend. Well, my crock pot AND the Chinese take out place on the corner! I'll try to pop in with a post from time to time as I am able, but the meal plans are going on hold until February. If you're looking for ideas, just click the Meal Planning icon in my right sidebar and you'll have access to lots of previous meal plans featured on this blog.
Hope you are all having a great week!
