But alas, we renovated our kitchen and erased our travel budget
We love good food and cooking so it was worth every penny
We moved into our six-year-old house in 2000, so after eighteen years of heavy-duty cooking and entertaining, my kitchen was worn out. The question was should we put replace the appliances, counter tops and hardware, or buy new cabinets? Our kitchen was the last room to be updated. Last time we gutted a kitchen, we moved to Bowling Green four years later. Would that happen again? New cabinets, meant new wiring, replacing drywall, etc. etc. etc. It took all summer.
If you've read my books, there is a lot of description of food and wine within the pages. but hey, it's France. The French love their fine cooking. It is said, as soon as one meal is over, they start thinking about the next. I can relate to that. My brain is creative when it comes to food. Bon appetite!
