Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner, is hosting Show Us Where You Live Friday. Today, you get to tour my kitchen. It was my favorite room in our home when we purchased it 5 years ago. Probably because it was the only room that had been remodeled. I now have a love/hate relationship with my kitchen.
Here is where you can find us most mornings and afternoons. I would love to have a round table for this area, but it just hasn't been a priority thus far.
My refrigerator says, "Giggle a Giddy Laughter." With three kids, that is the norm around here. And, next to the fridge, you will see my Kitchen Aide. Boy, do I love that thing! I just got it this year as a birthday gift from my in laws. How did I survive 12 years of marriage without that thing?!
Hey, no bikes in the kitchen!
The floor is made of wood tiles and I love them. They clean up well and are very forgiving when it comes to food, crumbs, and the random cat hair. Hey, don't look too close...that is cheating!
Here is where I spend most of my days, or so it seems. The lady that owned this house before had an obsession with pink and hunter green. Together. In the same room. So, the woman remodeled her kitchen with PINK counter tops.
Yep, PINK! Oh, I am sure they are called, "MAUVE." That sounds so sophisticated, doesn't it? Well, I am NOT crazy about the color of my counter tops, but I will live with them. And, in case you didn't notice, there is some green in the flooring. It is more subtle than the pink, but it is still there.
You want to see what's for dinner? Salsa Chicken and it smells awesome! Here is what I put in my crock pot this morning: 4-6 frozen chicken breasts, 1 jar of salsa, 1 can corn (drained), and 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed). Really, that's all! Cook on low for about 6 hours.
I love this stuff with corn bread. Wait, I forgot something...
Cheese and sour cream make it taste ever better. (We won't talk about the added fat. No. We. Won't.)
