In My Kitchen – January 2016

Not only has another month passed by, it’s a whole new year!  The time just keeps flying by.  I’m joining Maureen at Orgasmic Chef for another month of In My Kitchen.  Maureen is our new fearless leader so stop on by her site and check out all the links.

Back in early December, which seems ages ago, I had a diverticulitis flare up which meant complete exhaustion, antibiotic side effects, pain and limited diet.  Needless to say not much happened in my kitchen.  Then came the holidays and the kids were with me constantly.  Josh worked insanely long hours.  We were all exhausted.

Despite all all that madness we had the best Christmas yet.  It was quiet and relaxed.  Brunch was fantastic and dinner was superb.  I didn’t get all the baking done I wanted to, but my mental and physical health were more important as I recovered.  Maybe we’ll make our mini gingerbread houses for Valentine’s Day!

Anyway, here is what happened in my kitchen.  Let me introduce you all to my new pantry.  My best husband ever built this and we put it in the kitchen the weekend before Christmas.  This is another reason I got less baking done since I was moving everything around in the kitchen!  It was so worth it.

In My Kitchen – October 2015

It’s another month and time for a peek in my kitchen. I thought September was busy with both Josh and Sean having birthdays plus school, scout and swim schedules to contend with. We also had a water line break in the neighborhood resulting in mandatory water boil for drinking and cooking.

Then October started off rainy and dreary and I was unable to blog much since lighting for photographs was horrific. And then the Columbia Flood happened. October is off to a mad start and I’m feeling very fortunate with our situation. Homes, belongings, cars, power, running water and lives have been lost in our beloved home town. We are extremely lucky to have very little damage.

While I may complain about being cooped up in the house another day with three very active boys, I’m glad we are all safe and sound. Josh made it to work late this morning with one road closure detour. It is going to take a long time for the city to recover, but life is going on somewhat normal for us.

So thanks to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for hosting this monthly event. It’s nice to have some normalcy in life right now!
