Hello? Anyone still here? I know, I know, it’s been pretty quite ’round here lately. No worries, I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth, I’ve just been simply busy. The reason why? We are in the process of buying our first house! 🙂
We started the process a few weeks ago, and spent a Sunday afternoon looking at houses with our realtor. We looked at 3 different houses, and we simply fell in love with the last one. We put an offer in the next day, and we were under contract by that Tuesday. If all goes well, we’ll be closing the first week in April. Very, very exciting stuff!
The best part of the house, of course is the kitchen. It is uh-mazing. I am so excited to have more than 4 cupboards, and of course lots of counter space…ohhh the counter space. The island is so big I could take a nap on it. Seriously. I can only imagine the yummy goodies that will be created in this kitchen!
Besides the kitchen, I am mostly just excited to have more space in the house. While our townhouse worked well for just the two of us, it was a tight fit whenever we’d have more than a few people over. I can’t wait to be able to have our friends over for dinner parties, and actually have space to entertain. I foresee lots of Sunday dinners with friends and family in our future.
Speaking of Sunday dinner, this is a perfect recipe for your meat and potato lovers. The beef slow cooks all afternoon, making it extremely tender and flavorful. The gravy thickens up nicely, and is perfect on top of a bed of mashed potatoes. Serve it with some veggies and some fresh dinner rolls, and you have the perfect comfort food for a cold winter day.
