And now, the end is near, and so I face…the final weeks of the kitchen remodel! 😉 Yes, Poggenpohl came this morning at 8am and started putting together the new kitchen. We had a very quick meeting with the builders to discuss water and electricity connections, paint repair jobs etc and the story is that we’ll probably be “finished finished” in about 2 weeks. Fingers crossed! 😉
Here are some photos to keep you (and me) all going. Looking good so far. The kitchen units and worktops should be completed by next Monday.
This is going to be our built-in bench.
And this is where the oven/hob is going to be.
And this is the long, long worktop where the sink and dishwasher will be.
And now I must go, because I have guests coming for dinner within the next hour. And what’s for dinner, I hear you ask? Beef stroganoff from the crockpot, rice from the rice cooker, green beans with sugar and bacon. And the pièce de résistance? Boca Negra cake. A flourless chocolate cake, which I’ve never made before. Thank you to the lovely Candace (whom I can always trust on these things…she teaches children for a living, for goodness sake) for pointing me in the direction of the recipe. The original called for rum – I used Malibu 🙂
