Now that my kitchen is expanding....so is the amount of stuff!
I thought I'd pop in here in the conversation forum. We started planning our kitchen / dining room addition over a year ago. I never would have thought it would have taken this long! I'd say we're about 2/3 of the way done. Anyhow, my current kitchen is teensy-tiny. Like about 12 square feet of counter space, and most of that is taken up by a dish drainer, coffee pot and toaster. And we have no dishwasher! So I've always been very careful about not buying things I don't need. But I've also held back on things I've wanted. Now that the end is in sight, I've bought a 16 qt pressure cooker and an ice-cream maker. We've been making homemade ice cream, and I can't wait to start canning this fall.
Hopefully I won't just buy useless gadgets to fill up our new space, but it's so refreshing to finally be able to get some enjoyment out of things I've wanted for a long time!
