Making Do

It seems like much longer than it really has been since we’ve had appliances. I think it’s been about 2 1/2 weeks but it seems like months. I of course, am used to using my stove every day and bake things at least four times a week so the delivery of our new appliances today has me very excited! Β The stove won’t be hooked up to the gas until next week…but even still, at least they’re here.

We’ve been making do quite well, I think. It hasn’t been nearly as hard as I thought it would be to live without carpet, flooring, appliances, and living basically in one room for a while. I’m not used to the chaos and mess, but that will be easily fixed by Friday of next week. We are blessed to be able to do a little remodel and life could be much, much, worse so it’s pretty hard to complain too much about a slight inconvenience for a few weeks.

This morning I started my day off with a turkey sandwich (leftovers from our wonderful dinner at my in law’s), potato salad (pre-made Reser’s from the local grocery store), and a nice steaming cup of Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate (via the microwave). A great breakfast, if you ask me!

    • The stove was hooked up today. Made braised chicken thighs with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes over rice. It was yummy and I love all of our new appliances! Our old stove and dishwasher were 11 years old and the fridge was 16 years old. Ha! Quite the change. πŸ™‚


  1. I LOVE the pumpkin spice hot chocolate!! Who knew pumpkin would be good in hot chocolate?? I’ve been making my drink with cocoa and xylitol, but it’s still yummy. Thanks for the inspiration.


    • Thank you, and yes, we finally have them and are getting the house all put back together! I miss my blogging buddies, we’ve been knee deep in house stuff 15 hours a day for over four weeks now. I’m definitely ready to start baking for Christmas and getting back in the swing of things in the next few days. πŸ™‚
