Wow, life really got in the way of the blog, and here is is, 9 months later, and we no longer have a kitchen! Pictures to follow! The Use It Up kitchen has been in service for over a month (more pictures to follow), and while we did use up a LOT before we gutted, the recipes to make during the process have been harder to come up with. I have a grill (outside), a Lean Mean Grilling Machine, one burner (takes a LONG time to barely boil water, so cooking pasta is really tough), a toaster, and a microwave (but if you run the microwave with anything else, a breaker will blow! Have been making sandwiches, grilling pork tenderloin (delicious marinade recipe to follow), and chicken marinated in various Trader Joe's salad dressings. We've also been harvesting lots of salad greens from the garden, along with spinach, sugar snap peas, and chives, but not much else. Tomatoes are behind (cool (LOVELY) spring), and barely have planted peppers. I imagine they will start fruiting when the kitchen is done. Please feel free to suggest anything at all healthy to prepare, given our circumstances!
