My Tiny New Kitchen

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted.  I started and quit a job after two grueling weeks of training.  Now my search for employment goes on and I’m trying to get back in the swing of things, like writing my blog and getting our new home in order (yes, I also moved during the whole job thing).

As most of you know I love, love my big kitchens, well it’s over for the moment anyway.  This kitchen is so small I had to cut three inches of either side of my wooden wine rack (which I’m using to store things) to fit it into the kitchen.  In addition, there was and still is so little cabinet space we had to buy a wall unit and I have a lot of overlap on the back porch.

Linda put it best as I complained about the lack of space, she said “ it’s good practice for when you move to France.”  No kidding I made rice the other day and had to put the rice maker on the floor because there was no free counter space.  Here are a few pictures:


The cabinets over and next to the stove (above) were the only ones in the room.

The kitchen is 8 feet wide and 10 feet long, yes really! And if anyone tries to sit in it and talk to me while I’m cooking I really will kill you.
