At last! Our kitchen has returned to functionality. We can once again cook when we feel so inclined. Who would have suspected that it could take so long to get it back in working order after only a minimal “refresh.” It’s not like we did a real remodeling. We have finally finished cleaning the sawdust out the cabinets and drawers. Only now we can’t find anything since we had to do some rearranging.

To celebrate our little milestone, we decided to open a bottle of a favorite wine for dinner. We organized and relocated our wine collection yesterday and realized we have far too many reds, so we could certainly allocate one for this occasion. Most of them are finer wines, many that need to age a few more years, but I had a few more bottles of that favorite La Honda 2002 cabernet sauvignon than I thought. So why not??!!

My favorite improvement in the “new” kitchen (other than just the change in appearance) is the new cooktop. We have a very small kitchen with space for only a 30” cooktop, so this new version with dual and tri-ring elements is great. It provides more flexibility than standard burner sizes by allowing you to choose the appropriate heating element for your pot size. It also has a feature for boiling water quickly. Now all we need to do is find the time to do our own cooking more often.
