How did I ever cook in the misery I used to call a kitchen?

Like, I now have 3 racks in my oven. THREE. I can have more than one thing in the oven at a time……………. I’ll never take your blessings for granted, Jesus,Β I swear!

My sink is supes deep & I can, like, rinse dishes off without drowning myself. & it has the spicket thingy that detaches so you can aim your stream. That sounds dirty, but it’s an innocent & beautiful romance.

OH & the ice machine. I’d really like to kiss the inventor of these on the mouth, if anyone has a contact. Goodbye ice trays, see you literally never again because you tried to ruin my marriage because I never remembered to refill you & I always ended up taking the last of the ice & Garrett often had to drink warm water.

But I have absolutely no clue where anything is so I was forced toΒ cook this with a slotted spoon.

    Looks wonderful! I had a decent size kitchen before we decided to move to the mountains. For 4 LONG years I lived in tiny kitchens with no dish washer and crap refrigerators. The day we moved in our new house with brand spanking new appliances I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I love hearing about your new digs! Keep it coming!!

        Yes, I practically bitched everyday I didn’t have one. Didn’t cook much and when I did, I refused to use gadgets because I didn’t want to wash them by hand. If something says “hand wash”. Get outta my kitchen unless it’s a pot or pan. Then forgiven.

    LMBO at this and your kitchen. You rubbed so much salt on my wound (three burner stovetop, stove the size of a big toaster oven, and teeny-tiny ice cube trays)… ugh my kitchen, but at least you made me laugh about it. Good job with the spoon, it looks amaze-balls.
