We move into our new place a week from tomorrow. As of now, I don’t know how the new place will be equipped when I get there. (I do know that it will be fully equipped at some point, but on moving day there may not be, for example, an oven or stove. Or fridge. Or dishwasher. Or washing machine. Ack.) We’ve been making an effort, of late, to reduce the number of things we will have to move – finishing off jars of mustard, using up the last of the parchment, and so on. But before the packing up begins in earnest, I wanted to share a few photos of what is pretty much the best kitchen I could hope for in a tiny parisian apartment. I’ve tagged notable items in the photos on Flickr, so if you want to know more about what’s in the pictures, click them and you’ll go to my Flickr page. You can also find all the photos here, in one set.
Can’t get the captions to work on this one, but here are the shelves. (Look, in the background – it’s the couch!)
This kitchen is actually better than the last one I had in the States. It’s small, but there’s a place for everything. I love how it’s open to the living room, as I’m always running late on dinner preparation, and it’s nice to be able to chat with guests while I put the finishing touches on dinner. I also love love love the outside cupboard – there is no better place to store potatoes. Basically, I’m completely spoiled. The good news is that other than the major appliances, all the cooking gear is making the move with me. So I’m sure I’ll be cooking up a storm again in no time.
Goodbye, kitchen! It’s been great knowing you. I only hope your new owner loves and appreciates you as much as I do.
On this day in 2008: Is there anything better than carnitas?
