Hey, wanna come see my kitchen?
(Don't mind the skeptical look on my face above. I reserve that for Adam.)
I don't know if you heard, but a few weeks ago Adam and I were featured over on the Southern Weddings Blog as a part of their Southern Newlywed: In the Kitchen series. We shared ten of our favorite recipes and they included one of our engagement photos and a couple food photos from the blog. It was fun!
What they didn't include were some pictures my sister took of Adam and me preparing a meal in our kitchen. I'm rather fond of them, so I thought I'd share them here.
Below we have me chopping and Adam trying to hide the fact that he just stole a roasted chickpea from the pan.
Here he is swiping a carrot that I just meticulously chopped. Thief!
My sister's dog, Luna requested a treat for her efforts.
See that askew rug under the sink? Once she was convinced that it was something dangerous or scary and would NOT stop barking at it until we moved it. Dogs are weird. (But awesome.)
The salad we made is a variation on this one and this one. Simple and filling and so good. I eat it all the time.
romaine + carrots + spiced roasted chickpeas + avocado + feta + your favorite vinaigrette
Gimme all the roasted chickpeas. I think here we used some chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper, but you could use whatever spices you like.
We moved our table into the living room area for better lighting. Just go with it.
Here we are standing where the kitchen table usually is.
And that's it.
I love how light and bright our kitchen is, and yes, I'm one of those people whose OBSESSED with white cabinets. We're just renting now, but I hope to have them in our house one day too. Along with a built-in shelf for cookbooks. And a huge window. And a breakfast nook. And a teal retro fridge. One can dream, right?
What's in your dream kitchen?
