Silver Sunday - An Introduction to My New Blog - A Dream Kitchen
I am participating in Gypsy Fish's Silver Sunday today (my first time...I think). This set of silver trays sits right there behind my sink and I use them as dish drainers (I add a tea towel) when something's too big for the dishwasher or I only have a few to wash. They really make me smile. Not only am I sharing my silver with you today, I am introducing y new blog. Yep-I started another blog- A Dream Kitchen. Why that name? Three reasons. First, when we were designing and building our home, I poured over tons of magazines and books trying to find all the elements that would make my kitchen my "dream" kitchen. Of course, budget and space played a major part in the overall design, but I ended up with a kitchen that I would not have imagined to even stand in 20 years ago.
Second, I am always dreaming up a new reason to get together with our family and friends;
Birthday parties, Baby Showers Crab & Lobster Boils, Chili Parties,Thanksgiving, and Cookies Parties. My kitchen ends up being where everyone gathers and laughs and it so much more than I ever dreamed. Third, I love to pour over magazines and cookbooks and dream of cooking up all the great dishes that are starring back at me.
But alas, I usually stick with my old standbys. So, my new blog is about me cooking my dream dishes in my dream kitchen and sharing my get-togethers with you. Well, I'm going over to A Dream Kitchen to finish up my post, come and visit. Tata for now!
