So, say HI to my chicken water pitcher. The inspiration for my kitchen.
I have followed the Mediterranean diet for years. First inspired by a trip to the Med in 2002, where we bought our chicken while in Sicily. He is a cute rooster. His bright colors are the inspiration for our kitchen renovation.
It is almost there. Next up, countertop, stove, sink and cabinet hardware. This is the first real cosmetic upgrade to our house. Almost everything before this was energy driven. Better insulation. Better appliances. Better windows and doors and roof. Well, besides replacing the rotting deck and crumbling patio.
I use my kitchen. Some say I could be abusing my kitchen, with all that steam and chopping and cooking. I know, I should be looking for granite and open concept and the other buzz words. Spoken by people who may have Pizza Hut on speed dial. Our decisions are based on durability and use. So, probably no to granite and yes to quartz. If I mistakenly drip olive oil on quartz, I have a much better chance of recovering.
To christen the new kitchen, a Mediterranean dinner.
Slow baked tuna in tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Sautéed chickpeas. A nice old red wine.
Now, I need to update my HocoBiz page to thank our electrician for the great work he did to replace our old fluorescent lights.
