Kitchen completed.

After three and a bit years, we finally were able to afford to renovate the kitchen. I can't even start to explain just how bad the previous kitchen was. The previous owners clearly didn't like cooking, and didn't know the meaning of hygiene. We made do with the old cooker, units and floor throughout the house renovation, even though the units were falling apart, the cooker should have been condemned and some pipes were leaking. We finally decided enough was enough and it was time to save for the kitchen. We both scrimped and saved every penny until we had enough to pay for the new kitchen. A holiday went out the window and we barely went out. But it was well worth it in the end. Here are some before and after shots:

Since then I have been in my absolute element and have finally got my cooking bug back. Here are some photos of what I have been conjuring up lately. 

Beer butt chicken from Jaime Oliver's America cook book.




I love Summer..lemony courgettes, Mint coolers and bbq's!
Falafel, fried halloumi cheese and mustard & onion seed carrot salad

Scotch pancakes like my grandmother used to make!
Beetroot brownies

Till next time xx
