Happy December! We’re a month into a new lease in a new apartment and, while we’re still without a couch or coffee table or shelves for our books and knick knacks because we threw them out along with the last vestiges of the mouse problem that tainted the final few months in our old apartment, we are finally living in a place that gets direct sunlight. Yay!!! Northern light is brooding and sexy and all, and I did enjoy it, truly, while we had it, but most of the time I’m feeling decidedly un-brooding and un-sexy, so the change is very welcome.
My very first act upon moving in was fixing up the kitchen, naturally. It’s now decked out with shelves for my flour and grain collection, a knife rack, and an island that feels luxuriously roomy after spending years trying to make do with cramped little counters. In short, it’s a kitchen I really want to be in, and I’m looking forward to breaking it in with the holiday cooking and baking to come.
Bolognese sauce is bubbling away on the stove, a Biscoff pie crust is baked off and ready to go, it’s going to be a good Thanksgiving.
Hoping the same for all you Americans! Happy Thanksgiving!
Kimchi weather is upon us, friends. Let’s rejoice in that fact by incorporating it into whatever we can, whenever we can.
More soon! xx
