Well. This has been a long time coming. Somehow it’s now August, when I should have posted it back in April, but better late than never. Right??
Some of you may have noticed that I changed my blog’s subtitle—though most of you probably didn’t, because who reads blog subtitles anyway? It used to be “adventures in a tiny kitchen”, but that’s not really true any more. Because I bought a condo (that’s right, I’m a grown-up) and now have an awesome kitchen!
The kitchen is really what sold me on this place. New, stainless steel appliances, gas stove and oven, nicer cabinets (and lots of them). And most importantly, lots of counter space. I’d lamented my one square foot of counter space in my old apartment enough times that you know how much that means!
I’ve been in here a few months now, though I haven’t put the kitchen through its paces quite as much as I’d have liked to yet. This summer has been absolutely bonkers between work, some travel, and getting ready for surgery, so my goal for the fall is to really dig in and try a ton of new recipes.
The only thing so far that I’ve found odd about the kitchen—beyond the fact that that nice little remodel corner over there has NO OUTLETS and all the light switches are in weird places—is that the lighting photographs weird. It looks beautiful in person, and even photographs well like this, but when I try to take pictures of the food I make it shows up super orange. White balance must be all sorts of off, so I’m working on that one.
But for now, I’ll bid you adieu and grab a bottle out of my wine fridge…!
P.S. The subtitle’s just a placeholder for now, until my poor, tired brain can come up with something more clever. So, open to suggestions!
