We finally closed on the house on Dec 31, 2013, it took us 6 months to close. It is an awesome house that we bought with cash. It is not a glamorous house
by any means but it is ours and it has not one but two kitchens. :) This makes me very happy that I will have a main kitchen for meals and such, and a second kitchen for canning and processing my own foods.
So much had to be done just for me to get an operational kitchen so I can start my culinary adventures.
Cleaning the kitchen took over a week, this house was a foreclouser and had been empty for a few years at least. So first on my agenda get it cleaned
up! The clean up on the main kitchen took a week, the stove alone took a whole day and it was quite a task I must say. Below are before and after photos of the stove.
It took us another week in order to have our household goods delivered.
Wow, I Have a lot more kitchen item then I remembered when we packed them 6 months ago.
Once our household goods were delivered it all had to be cleaned and sorted which took me another week (I continue to work on organizing the rest of
the rooms in the house but it is a slow going project). But I finally got the main kitchen in working order and I am very proud of my hard work and my beautiful kitchen. My boyfriend and I obtained some 30 pounds of holiday hams on sale for .99 a pound. So
we decided to butcher some hams, some for freezing and other for dinner and of course when I have lots of ham, I feel the urge to make pea soup. Here is a photo on my stove with soup on! :)
The pea soup was delicious! and made from scratch. :)
I am very excited to unveil my new kitchen, I would like to thank my boyfriend for all that he does. I know I will be cooking up a storm in my new home.
Till my next adventure keep on cooking!
I also made apple pie using the following recipes:
Aunt Carol's Apple Pie
Pie Crust IV
It was super yummy, I found the pastry was very tasty but a bit heavy. I believe this is my error and I will continue practicing my pie
