BACK PORCH MUSINGS SMORGASBORD
MINI KITCHEN TOUR
Unfortunately or fortunately, we forgot the cork screw, so we will taste Wild Hare Pinot Noir, next trip to the apartment. I admit, I chose this wine for the label.
I cannot remember how many times I get a wild hair about this, that, or the other.
Not just a table…
Continuing with the blue and white theme, I used the same mats, from last week, but changed plates and added the small bowls, for this table for two.
While we are in the kitchen you might like to see the changes, so far.
I love my cutting boards, so I brought along a few wooden and white ones. I routinely use all the boards.
The small lamp fits perfectly at the end of the counter and serves double duty as a bookend for a couple of favorite cook books. Apples, lemons, and oranges in a colander, plus the iron paper towel stand, finish this corner vignette.
That’s it, I don’t want to clutter the counter with too much stuff. I need the rest of this space for food prep.
This photo shows the other side of the galley style kitchen. Two small cabinets, the stove and refrigerator are on that side. Not much counter space, so I am selective with accessories, using a utensil crock and a Pfaltzgraff chicken stand holding cheese plates.
We added Missouri wine to the rack above the refrigerator . Two wine glasses and a glass jar filled with wine corks and matches from various establishments we’ve visited here, there, and everywhere, are all that is needed for a simple arrangement.
The sort of coppery metal fish above the stove is a leftover from our lake condo.
Our little blue Keurig and a two slice toaster are at the end of the counter. K-cups and other coffee making supplies are in the drawer, with coffee cups stored in the cabinet above.
I found the olive bucket at Home Goods awhile ago. I added a grey plastic flower pot, making the olive bucket the kitchen trash receptacle.
The apartment complex and our former lake condo were built around the same time. The vinyl in the apartment is the same as the vinyl in the condo.
Pizza was our Monday lunch. I usually prefer thin crust but this was very good.
Work in progress in the laundry alcove. The washer and dryer are behind louvered doors. There is a desk in this space also. The abstract is camouflage for the breaker box. I’m trying out a few ideas in the alcove. Just another little diversion.
