OK, it's time to get in high gear!! Enough of these strange men in the kitchen tearing walls down, putting up plastic sheets, and making chaos in my kitchen!! They're gone....so out comes the lysol, the bleach, the vinegar, and the rubber gloves.....and VOILA...I have a kitchen again!!
|a clean counter|
So, to celebrate, let's have a look around....Here on the counter is one of my favorite little baskets filled with some fresh fruit. The favorite right now is honeycrisp apples- so sweet and crisp, just like their name! In fron of the basket is my favorite tape dispenser; looks like an old sewing machine with a patchwork quilt underneath the needle. @eileensideways likes it, so I'd love to find another and surprise her with it....
Then, we've got the bear and bowl....filled with warm'em up coasters....if you set a hot tea mug on them, they smell like cinnamon.
|gift from oldest daughter- love it!|
|my stovetop---not of my dreams, but of my pocketbook. I'd LOVE a gas wolf but this will do! BUT, on top is a prized possession....my sweetheart got me this copper pot from Williams-Sonoma about 5 years ago. I just cleaned it, too!|
|love black and red and I LOVE plaid, checks, and buffalo checks....hence, the asparagus sign|
|just changed up all my teacups and saucers on my rack--all fresh and new; the chintz is my favorite Winton Evesham pattern from England- can't find more of it anywhere at any reasonable price, however|
|AND, with a fresh clean kitchen comes some new cooking!!|
|NO, I didn't put the 'green sauce' on the fruit, but it did go on the chicken and the quesadilla....so good!|
|pretty nice looking fruit I found for winter....strawberries came from CA!|
|don't know WHY this picture turned around so, but this was lunch yesterday|
|my favorite RED mixer|
|my Valentine's teatowel on the oven door|
|my bear in heart in bathroom|
|my tiny cupcakes for tomorrow's event; will be frosted this evening for delivery tomorrow|
OK....on to the living room and get things straightened up in there.......LOTS of baking to do tonight....will post more about that later!! LOVE YOU!!!!
