And we have Granite!

I was getting used to our melamine counters, and accessing the top drawers of our cabinets without having to open them 😜.. but today they arrived..

from the mountains of Brazil to Toronto to Stoney Creek where it was cut and fashioned to fit our home.. this gorgeous slab of granite made its way to Jordan Station today. It’s cold.. very cold.. but beautiful.

Now you can see how beautifully the stools fit in.

Here’s some views around the kitchen.

And close up of the slabs in different areas of the kitchen, highlighted by different lighting.

I chose a 45 degree edge to complement our cabinetry. But with rounded edges so no major injuries when walking into it. 😫

Our farmers sink fits in perfectly now..

And finally. For those of you who haven’t been able to picture where the kitchen is in relation to Dining and living room.. and front entrance.. (note, our previous front entrance was where the stove/microwave are now.)

It’s such a lovely wide open space just waiting to be filled.. and yes, there’s still a bit of orange..😁

Bill (Guillermo 'cause he likes pretending he knows Spanish) and I (Amy) have been married since Sept 2005. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada - Niagara Peninsula in fact, smack dab between 2 of the Great Lakes. We love God, our family, our church family, and making each other laugh. (ergo the profile pic, he decided to make our photographer laugh by throwing a leg up on me just before the shutter clicked, which made ME laugh) When we married, I told Bill: "I don't know how to cook" but he had faith in me. So 15 years later, I'm still learning, and having fun. I've never (in my whole life) cooked a whole bird, chicken, turkey or otherwise. I've never roasted a beef, other than in a crockpot on low for 8 hrs. I like trying to find healthy & easy recipes and then I rarely follow them. I don't enjoy recipes that take hours or intricate steps. I have a special fondness for the Podleski sisters, writers/creators of the Looney Spoons, Crazy Plates and Yum/Yummer cookbooks. In 2018 we suddenly decided to rip our small house apart from stem to stern, moving out for 4.5 months while the house was demolished inside and out, and then rebuilt with an addition. If you go back in the archives to July-Dec 2018 you can follow that story. It's made our house open and so much more conducive to entertaining, small groups and large. It's given us the kitchen I've dreamed of to create and learn in. We feel incredibly blessed to be able to write about our journey, our faith in God and some fun recipes along the way. Thanks for joining us.
