This weekend was the official kick-off to the kitchen remodel. The beginning to a long journey to a new kitchen and an efficient place to cook, we're super excited. So far we have cleaned out all the cabinets and taken about 1/2 the cabinets out. We moved the dining room to the living room, and then we created a temporary kitchen in our dining room. Eventually the dining room will also have to be the assembly area for our new cabinets. Basically it will be getting crazy around here, and we're trying to be as prepared as possible. Here's some picture of how a temporary kitchen looks.
You might have noticed there is no stove in the temporary kitchen, and you're right. For now it is still usable in the kitchen, but once it is time for the new floors we will be down to only the microwave, toaster oven, and grill. We're going to make it work.
Before the kick-off I was cleaning out some items from the fridge and decided to take our apples and made some dried fruit for our oatmeal. I peeled and diced about seven apples that were going bad, covered them in cinnamon, then let the dehydrator do the rest of the work.
I also baked up some egg cups for Matt. Often he is crunched for time in the morning, so I mixed up some eggs and egg whites and baked them in a muffin tin with some sauteed spinach. It will make the morning quicker, and will be easier since our kitchen isn't fully functioning.
Alright off to finish the weekly laundry...
