many thanks to Cicero for posting the mouth watering photo, and delicious recipe for bangers and mash. it looked so fine that it was the first thing i thought of when my kitchen was finally functional again. this photo is my own rendition of said delicacy. my 7 year old granddaughter was here for the weekend. when i told her i was making bangers and mash for the evening meal, she looked at me through her eyebrows and said, "you're kidding, right?" she opted for nacho chips and cheese dip instead. she doesn't have her granny's appreciation of peasant food.
it's been a long grind... since January. the kitchen is not quite finished.... still the last bits of tile to put up and grout, the last of the bead board, and trim, and a final coat of paint on those. but the cabinets are in, and the floor and new windows and door. the boxes that had taken over the dining room all winter are gone. emptied into those lovely new cabinets. the cardboard will help mulch the paths between the raised beds planned for the garden.
server very twitchy.... will post picture later
