Another non-food post.........but at least it's mostly about the kitchen....
We had our home inspection today and I think things went pretty well. I took time to look over the house more thoroughly. The good news is we found that there was a gas line to the stove, so I can go shopping! I also counted nine kitchen drawers (not counting the bread-type drawers) which will triple what I have now! It also has a small pantry closet and a cabinet with pull-out drawers for my pots and pans. I was also excited about the narrow cabinet that will be perfect for storing my baking pans.
The Breakast Nook The Kitchen
If you saw my current kitchen, you'd understand my excitement. I have one of those long, deep cabinets where you have to almost crawl inside of it to reach anything. It's in this cabinet where all of my pots, pans, and bakeware is stored. It's a huge pain to get to anything and, as a result, it's a big mess most of the time because I can't deal with it. Not only will our new kitchen give us A LOT more storage, it will be much more efficient and organized.
As much as I'd love to do things like replace the cabinets and flooring with things more my style - that pickled wash on the cabinets isn't terrible, but it's not me - we'll have to live with most of it as is - we won't be able to afford to do anything major for quite a while. I'm so not loving the huge, recessed, flourescent lighting fixture - I truly DO NOT remember it spanning the whole ceiling! The 3 things we will do is replace the stove, replace those lovely seafoam green countertops, and buy 3 stools for the breakfast bar.
Feeling a bit better today, but still dragging. Hopefully I'll be posting later with some actual cooking news.
