Kitchen Improvements

Ahh.. I am way behind in my posting! Things in life are crazy right now but are starting to settle and I am very happy to be able to share the latest improvements to our kitchen. First and foremost is our new stove!! I can't believe that we have lived here for almost a month with now stove. Especially since I said that the stove was the one thing that had to be fixed before we moved in. Well things got complicated because we had our hearts set on having a gas stove but there was no gas line in the kitchen. That meant we had to have a plumber come out and install a gas line which took time and now here it is almost the end of April and we are just now getting our stove. They came installed it this morning and I couldn't be happier, seriously, I did a little happy dance. Eric picked it out while I was out of town last weekend and I think he did a great job. Here is a picture:
We also finally got around to hanging our Ikea hanging storage system in the kitchen and it has done wonders for opening up the space and helped out a lot with our organization. I love having everything right there on the wall where I can get to it. Because our kitchen in this house is small it was really important to us to maximize our storage space. Here are some pictures of the hanging system and one of the kitchen overall.

This afternoon we were able to enjoy our first meal cooked on the new stove, massaman curry beef. This is one of our all time favorite recipes that we haven't been able to make in ages. It made me so happy to get to spend time in the kitchen cooking with Eric again. It is one of our favorite things to do together and we haven't done too much of it lately because of the lack of things to cook with. Here's a picture of the curry beef, yum yum!
