how much light for this room?

I am wondering about lighting needs for my kitchen. We have one window facing north. We are in Wyoming. I want a pendant over my sink and another over my "peninsula". In addition to that I want to utilize the Solatubes with the compact fluorescent light add on kits. I would like to do the whole room in these. Is that reasonable? I have attached a basic layout image here


Anyone care to take a whack at a lighting plan for my kitchen? I don't know where to start.

Solar tubes are awesome. I wish we had those in our kitchen. If you want the kitchen to be nice and bright at night time you could do some fluorescent lighting. We have the "clouds" in our kitchen now and they are very nice.
