I have kitchen envy. It's been getting worse and worse and those of you who post delicious recipes that require ovens are killing me. I want to bake cookies and stir-fry veggies and roast sweet potatoes! In the meantime, I drool over my future kitchen plans. Fingers crossed, I should have a working kitchen in 4 weeks or so. Our future house is coming along nicely and I'll keep you posted on the big new developments. Hubs and I decided it would be really nice if we kept Ikea in business since they're such a small company and clearly need lots of our money. (Is there a sarcasm font I can use or something??) There is actually a great deal going on where you can save 20% on your kitchen total. That is a HUGE amount when you think about the cost of a whole kitchen. Here's a sneak peak:
Some stuff is obviously missing, like a microwave and faucets and things, but basically this is it! We'll call it my domain. Has a nice ring to it, no? Once I'm set up, these are some of the first things I'll be making (courtesy of you lovely bloggers, thanks!)
--Guinness Cake Brownies (Cotter Crunch)
--Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes (Hungry Meets Healthy)
--Spring Ptitim Salad (Jenn's Adventures)
--Perfect Whole Wheat Bread (Lunges and Lashes)
--Strawberry-Lime Shortbread Cookies (Sweet Treats and More)
In the meantime, I'll keep getting creative with the old microwave!
Today's workout was a long run of 10 miles in 1:35 (9:30 pace). The oddest thing is happening right now though. I DON'T WANT TO EAT. I pretty much always want food. Always. So to not have an appetite is pretty strange. Hopefully it will pick up so I can reward my belly with post-long run goodies. Like the ginormous box of Nerds my amazing hubs bought for me this morning. 9 months of marriage and he's totally picking up on the fact that for me, sugar = love.
What's your favorite kitchen appliance? Tell me tell me so I can get it and be as happy as you!
Um, the microwave. Because that's my whole kitchen. Unless you count the counter by the sink as the kitchen. I really want to get a breadmaker though. Fresh baked warm bread please!
Post a link to your favorite recipes (can be from your own blog) so that I can get a great collection going and dream of the first things I'll cook!
