We love growing vegetables, but someone has to make use of the harvest and then someone has to wash the dishes. A typical summer day for us consists of spending almost every second of daylight in the garden, coming inside around 9:00 pm and then staring at each other hoping someone will make supper. We also tend to grow way more than we can use fresh and while we intend on "putting up" our excess crop, I tend to shove it away deep into the refrigerator until it turns to compost. So, after 6 1/2 years, we are finally going to start our kitchen remodel.
We plan to start demo tomorrow, so my to do list for today includes:
- finish making freezer meals that will be easy to heat up in a toaster oven
- finish setting up our temporary kitchen
- empty the cabinets- throw away old pantry items and pack the dishes
If you have any advice or encouragement please leave us a comment.
