I’m officially paying my electrician in lasagna. Spinach-Pesto-Fontina Lasagna to be precise, and just you wait for that phenomenal recipe. It helps that our dear, dear friend—and his sweet wife—appreciate culinary reimbursement.
Before I share an exciting kitchen update in our cherished condo-living, let’s travel back in time to our kitchen apartment: living-eating-cooking space rolled into one, and the former kitchen table…
As you can see, Andrew and I managed as the occasional cooking duo, but it’s a lot easier in our new home. (A special thanks to Bob for behind-the-scenes shots of this memorable brunch).
Besides sanding and painting our table set—a tedious summer undertaking on my part—and investing in a kitchen cart, the neccessary kitchen update was apparent: the terrifying lamp.
Our rental company insisted this kitchen light was not possibly in need of replacement, and those exposed wires were not really a hazard. Well, our handyman friend Dominic said, “Yes it is. Get yourself a new light and I will install it.”
A few sparks and fuse box visits later, and we welcome you to our ever-improving new kitchen…
The painted table is a definite improvement for the time being, especially with the World Market cushions I picked up with a moving gift from Andrew’s Nana and Granddad. In case you like our antique-brass pendant, you can find more information about it here. I also highly recommend this kitchen cart for small spaces needing extra storage and prep space. Dominic assembled it for me while his wife and I worked on this leek and brie gratin.
Should not we revisit the bartering system?
