hello everyone from our new place!
We finally got moved and somewhat settled, now it’s time to blog again. At least a little. I have lots of ideas for the new home and garden, plenty of projects to keep me occupied. Getting the composter set up and planting the herb garden seem like good things to start on. Then there is the less interesting task:
the kitchen. It is small with about 4 feet in total length of counter space (that’s being generous). Small sink, no dishwasher. You’re looking at the entire thing in the photo: fridge, stove, counter, sink.
Not very inspiring for cooking anything involved. So, I guess projects will be limited. On the other hand, the limited space encourages simplicity and fresh, minimally processed ingredients. The summer produce is just wonderful right now: fresh corn on the cob; cucumber and tomato salad with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper; fresh fruit galore.
I am looking forward to starting a new sourdough starter in this old house. I bet there are good little microorganisms in a 100 year old dwelling.
And then there is the payoff. A few (??) months down the road we will have a lovely new kitchen downstairs, complete with all the amenities and plenty of counter space! Patience.
