My kitchen! In it:
- the best appliances we could upgrade to... I kid you not, my microwave has a brain... There are these special "sensor" buttons for heating things like leftovers, baked potatoes, beverages, etc. and all you do is stick the "whatever" in the microwave, hit the one button and then the microwave cooks it until it senses steam and then figures out how long to count down until the food is warm! So far, I've reheated coffee and pizza and both were the perfect temperature... So cool :)
- Also, I fought for the diagonal laid tile backdrop, I think it gives the kitchen that "umph" that makes it look more expensive (since we couldn't afford granite). I can imagine spending many happy years cooking and conversing with family and friends in this room :)
- A glass of diet coke... always a glass of diet coke within reach
- My treasured Le Creuset dutch oven and tea kettle. Hubby thinks it's so funny that when we watch FoodTV, they use the same pot that I have in my kitchen :)
Now, for yarn update :) I got lots of fun yarn today! One of hubby's coworkers is having a baby girl and I haven't gotten to make a baby blankie for a little girl yet, so...
It's Caron Simply Soft in Watermelon, White and Soft Pink. I think, soon, it will become a pretty ripple blankey, maybe the Warm Waves pattern from Jan Eaton's 200 Ripple Stitches? I'll post pics as soon as I get started!
