Some of you may already know, but BD and I spent the better part of the last two weeks packing, moving, and trying adjust to our new little home. This has been no easy task and we finally spent our first night at the new place this past Saturday. I am in no way exaggerating when I say that not one thing went according to plan and many unexpected disasters happened.
The reasons aren’t important but it was time for us to leave the place we had called home for 4 years. It was a great little (well, not so little) house and I’m not ashamed to say that I hugged it good-bye as we locked the door for the last time. Still, our new place is perfect for just the two of us (though I’m still not so sure how it will be sharing a bathroom with BD yet), and will hopefully be the last place we rent before buying our own home.
So this post is about my old kitchen and my new kitchen. I never really shared much about the old kitchen (OK) but I loved it. BD says it was too small, but I disagreed. It just wasn’t a wide open space and the new kitchen (NK) is smaller anyway. And since I haven’t been able to cook and post much lately I thought this might be fun.
Two weeks ago when BD started packing up the kitchen (who packs the kitchen first, btw?) we started to find lots of things that we never knew existed in our cupboards. Coffee makers, old fashioned biscuit cutters, pie dishes…. I suspect these were all leftovers from previous roommates who are long gone now. I wish one of them had left a springform pan… I’ve been wanting for one of those. It was certainly interesting to see what hid in the depths of our cabinets and I couldn’t help but feel a little sad for all of the forgotten dishes. It was as if they we’re saying – Use me! Use me! I plan on giving them all a little love soon.
So here are some pictures of OK and NK. NK picture were taken prior to us moving in and OK after we left, so please imagine a huge microwave and old, ugly toaster oven somewhere for the full effect.
Hopefully by next week I’ll have some new recipes to share!
