New kitchen

New kitchen

We just secured an apartment in Mexico, sight unseen. It's that cute! OK, we haven't seen it *in person* but we do have pictures. For example, the kitchen has a gas stove/oven with six burners. It's smaller than the typical American oven, so I think it will be more efficient. That, plus the mile-high altitude, should make for some interesting recipe adjustments.

But look at all the counter space!

We will be moving in on Friday. Pretty excited...

that colour! I love it! On the other hand, my home office is painted that same deep cherry colour.

I do hope that you didn't end up in the damage zone from Harvey --- and that you and yours are all well and safe.

Please let us know how you are doing - and how the first bakes go in the new kitchen!

Dixongexpat was not to be. This house, in spite of the color scheme, was not ready for prime time. Those countertops were deceptively narrow. There were a dozen or so reasons we continued to look for other options, and we found it! I now have an even larger stove/oven with granite countertops and a lot of room to work.

I finally gave in and purchased some local flour. It isn't 'bread flour' but it will have to do. I'll add a new blog post with pics shortly.
