It’s been quite a while since we’ve been in my kitchen (or that I’ve posted). With the wedding planning and the wedding itself, I needed some time to rest up from the weekend of festivities. We’ve also been busy catching up on all the projects around the house that I let slide for the past few months…ok, possibly I’ve let a lot of things slide for the past year. There’s plenty that I’ve got to do both inside and outside the house. Unfortunately, we’ve had a lot of wood rot on the trim as well as an infestation of carpenter bees who decided to drill nests inside our trim board. Once the bees moved in, a very determined woodpecker started hammering away at the bee larvae so that made for quite a mess.
I’ll ease back into posting now that the wedding is over, our heat wave is finished, and we’re heading into more comfortable cooking weather. I will be posting a photo blog of the wedding and reception – it was absolutely the best day. I’ve been waiting to post the official wedding photos though since I consider them to be Niki and Tim’s story to tell and share first and I didn’t want to jump the gun – so those will be coming up in the next blog.
For now though I do have a few things to share in my kitchen.
My favorite – a beautiful tablecloth and napkins that Niki and Tim bought for us in Greece on their honeymoon. I love the linen fabric and the design.
I’m sure any of you who follow our IMK Hostess, Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial have noticed how much she loves her Romertopf cookware. Looking at prices starting at $50 and going up from there, I’ve been debating on whether or not I’d use one enough to invest in one. My decision was made for me when I found this at the church fair. Are you ready for how much I spent on this (Celia?)?
$1.00 – yes, ONE DOLLAR! I figure even if I never use it during the coming year I can always donate it back to the church next year.
My final In My Kitchen (actually it’s more of a ‘Wherever Diane Goes’) are these…again, sigh…
They’re still nice and shiny from my hip surgery and came in handy when I slipped on an oil spill in the garage and sprained my ankle. At least they were in the basement where I could easily grab them and get myself upstairs to wait for my husband to come home for a ride to the emergency room. It’s not a bad sprain though and is already feeling pretty good – not ready for dancing yet, but soon.
As always, thank you to Celia for hosting the IMK monthly blogs. She does a fantastic job keeping us all connected. Be sure to stop by and say hi to her at http://figjamandlimecordial.com/2015/10/01/in-my-kitchen-october-2015/
