We cooked in our kitchen tonight! Goodbye hotplate! My son helped. To tell you the truth I almost started crying I was SO HAPPY! I don't know how they did it years ago. I must say I am spoiled and I missed my sink, dishwasher, stove and oven. It has been a loooong time. Hubby started putting up the upper cabinets and they should all be in this weekend. We have upper and lower cabinet lighting that still has to be finished and I need to pick out my tile. We have a TON of woodworking too. We are going to finish the wood floors soon and hubby said I could move in and he would work around me. You have to remember not only have I been without a kitchen but also a dining room and living room. I do have to say my living conditions were not that bad. Hubby set me up in the garage. We have a 2 car garage and hubby built a wall to divide it in half. I went away for a long weekend and when I came back he had the fridge, couch, tv and dining table out there. He even put pictures on the wall! Still doing the dishes in the bathtub is back breaking!
Here is my son busy at work making cookies. He had told me when we started this project he wanted to learn how to cook. UMMM we'll see how long this lasts! He didn't think the cookie dough would ever end.
I decided to make (not sure of the name) that chicken dish with Ritz crackers. YUMMY!
I got some new pots and pans. They are from QVC. Cook Essentials. Love them.
Dinner was yummy!
I wore one of my new aprons.
