It's been quite a while since I posted a new recipe, but I promise, there's good reason.
Jay & I finally closed on our new condo!
We are thrilled to be homeowners again, but are currently in the throes of packing up our apartment and taking everything over to our new place.
The whole process -- which for very long and convoluted reasons -- started way back in April and, after fits, starts, and really awful performances by the seller's agent, it finally ended just last week. The place is small (really small), but it's beautiful. It's one unit in a 2-family home that was recently gutted and rehabbed into two condos.
I could list all the benefits of the place, from the party tub (yes, party tub... complete with color-changing lights) to its ideal location less than a mile from our current apartment. But let's focus on what counts: it has a fabulous kitchen!! We sealed the deal just in time to pick out the granite and the appliances ourselves. Keep your eye out for future posts testing the accuracy of my brand new oven...
Today, as we waited for the locks to be changed, the new washer/dryer to be delivered, and the carpet to be installed in the basement, we unpacked our kitchen items into the abundant cupboards. The final piece of the day -- the KitchenAid Mixer. It took its rightful place on the counter. So, it's official folks -- I have arrived!
