i’m writing this sitting at the counter of my new kitchen!
the movers are not coming until some time between monday and wednesday of next week, so i’m getting a makeshift kitchen going in the meantime. when i moved to new york, i didn’t take everything with me; i knew i wouldn’t have much space. conveniently that means that a lot of really useful things were left behind, and are here. now! i left behind all my silverware, some tupperware, some utensils, and a cheap block set of knives.
i also borrowed some bar stools and a skillet from my mom, and got a big stainless pot from grandmother, who never cooks for large groups anymore. i had a lot of cookbooks left in my parent’s house, including my copy of Memories of a Cuban Kitchen, a book my mom, sister, and aunt all have copies of, but i had not yet cooked from. i’ve been meaning to go through and veganize recipes from it, though. (that is one of my goals: to make delicious cuban vegan food, so i don’t feel deprived around the holidays, or anytime really.) so i went through it through it first thing this morning.
now i’m off to shop & get my house feeling a little more homey.
PS- I START WORK MONDAY!
