So my ma took the kids so that I could unpack.
My goal today is to unpack the kitchen and make my first meal in it. I notice that the cupboards are deep but not wide. The more I see of mid-century furniture and cabinets I notice that they are made for small things and people. Thankfully I have a large pantry to store all my small appliances and food which will give me the room I need in the cupboards.
I love a big window over the sink to look out while I do dishes. I’m the dishwasher in this kitchen, notice there isn’t a real one.
Our babysitter Janessa hung out today and acted as my sous chef. Together we whipped up some homemade guacamole and salsa to serve with some traditional Tuesday night tacos. We even invited a new neighbor over (shout out Josh 20)…
Bulb of garlic (you can use less but I like garlic)
Small can of diced green chilies
1 Large can of dices or crushed tomatoes (only use these if tomatoes aren’t in season or accessible)
4 fresh garden tomatoes
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
bouquet of fresh cilantro
kosher salt to taste
juice of half a lime
half a purple or white onion chopped
I put it all in the blender, it turns out like restaurant style salsa and it’s GOOD!
4 soft to touch avocados
onion powder 1 tsp
table salt to taste
the juice of half a lemon
Using a fork mash avocado and salt together in a glass bowl. Add onion powder and lemon. Start dipping your tortilla chip and fall in love.
Out the back door is a little patio that fits my newly painted wicker furniture.
Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed the convent tour. After I decorate and style I’ll show you some before and afters (if your interested). It’s been fun. I’m working on what musical to theme my next set of posts after…
Honestly (and tired), Amy
