    Distractions like mushrooms, transplants, work and baby chicks aside, our DIY kitchen still isn’t completely functional. So much for the ambitious schedule.

    But we have been working day in and out. The IKEA cabinet delivery was a disaster but we’re working with them to make it right.

    We do have double ovens, sink, dishwasher, a vent hood, and many cabinets installed. The newly installed bamboo floor puts our house-original oaks to shame. I painted, some walls twice, and still am not convinced that ‘Homey Cream’ is the right color.

    The cook top comes in Thursday, if all goes as promised. Zinc sheeting is flattening in the basement and ready for building the counter tops.

    The poor pets and child are ready for the noise and disruption to be finished. So are Alex and I. We’re hosting Easter dinner on Sunday for twelve, so I guess it’s time to get back to work!

    I live to eat and eat to live, planning every meal to include as much local and seasonal abundance as possible. My favorite color is purple, my favorite vegetable is whatever is fresh and local, and my favorite drink is whatever you're pouring. Follow me @racheltayse

      I think we are going to do ours this year so maybe I shouldn’t read too much about this, it might make me change my mind, ha ha.

      Good luck with Sunday!
