KITCHEN THINGS

Last night Jane had friends over for dinner, so Carol and I cooked a delicious three bean chili.  I will post the recipe later.  

Because a giant clam has taken over my dining table…..

we decided to have dinner in my kitchen.  (my dining table is really my office anyway) Here is a photo of my kitchen.

It's been like this forever, and I think I'm ready for a change.  Just a little change, maybe a bit more formal.  I like this kitchen below featured in the current Elle Decor.

I love the china cabinet in this kitchen.

I really love the color of the walls and the white cabinets.  I'm thinking of moving my hanging pot holder, and putting a little chandelier in it's place.  (we do bump our heads often)   Back to last night, here are some photos…..

Better biscotti 

Home made biscotti–again.

Cornbread 

Carol and I made cornbread to go with the chili.  (I actually use Martha White's mix–it has never let me down, and I'm lazy.)

Jane and her guests.  I'll post the three bean chili recipe in just a bit.
