our new kitchen comes with so many perks!

My mom was visiting over the weekend, and although it was quite cold yesterday, I felt I had to show her a bit more of our new neighborhood. On our walk, we discovered a fantastic little seafood store that sells fresh fish and random Asian sauces and condiments. (For those Nashville-ites checking the blog: it reminds me of a much smaller and less sketchy K&S). We decided to try some of their fish, and man was it good. We will definitely be going back.

Maybe it's because we haven't cooked in so long, but tonight's dinner smelled out of control incredible while my boyfriend was cooking. We also discovered some awesome perks of our new kitchen: 1) our kitchen is set up so that I can pull up a chair and hang with my man while he's cooking (even if he refuses to let me help), and 2) in my boyfriend's words: "The set-up of this kitchen makes it easier to clean up as I'm cooking".

Seriously, does it get any better?!?!?!

  1. I miss K&S! Glad you have found a suitable replacement. We have found one too, although it's still sketchy.

  2. I always thought K&S was very respectable and proper. You should see the store here, it even says 'sale items are out of date'.
    So it seems like everything is better in the big city, probably nicer neighbours, too, with more refined taste in music and dance...

  3. D'you have photos of your kitchen? Wonder how the setup works for your boyfriend. Hah, if he won't allow you to help him out, at least you still get to hang out with him in the kitchen.
