New House & Kitchen Renovations

A looong overdue update from the Someday Gourmet!  Please excuse the radio silence for the past month or so, it's been a whirlwind of activity on my end and blogging just didn't make it into the schedule.

Here's a glimpse at what's been going on....

My wife and I officially closed on our first home on April 23rd and we've been running around like mad since getting ready for move-in on June 12th.  We've focused most of our resources and energy on renovating our kitchen.  I am glad we chose this project right out of the gate as I think it will be the most labor intensive by far.

We've been making great progress over the past few weeks removing appliances, sanding all the surfaces, converting oven space from drop-in to slide-in, and painting.  We've got all new appliances (matching our new GE mounted microwave) coming from Best Buy the day after we move so there is much to get done between now and then.

Here are a few pictures of the work so far:

Doors and drawers...

As we continue to make progress on the kitchen, I will definitely keep you all posted.  In the meantime, be on the lookout for a Ravenswood Zinfandel Braised Short Rib recipe!
Thanks for continuing to follow SDG and more frequent updates are on the horizon :)
