Welcome to our kitchen! It's nothing fancy, but after looking at everyone's homes linked on Kelly's Korner I wanted to participate.
It's just a regular little kitchen, and looks a little more pink/dark in these photos then it does in person. This is the kitchen where Matt first made chicken-stuffed jalapeno poppers, where I discovered the magic of sausage-and-spinach stuffed shells and homemade shredded chicken verde enchiladas, and where the crockpot reigns supreme.
Things we've done:
Painted the basic builder-white walls a light tan
Upgraded the light fixtures
Added the bistro table and wine cabinet, both from World Market
The chief floor cleaner:

We made a quick trip to New Braunfels this week after my Grandpa Earl passed away on September 24th. Earl was a wonderful grandfather and I have lots of special memories of spending time with Grandma Evelyn and him during summers and on vacations. He had a nice funeral in New Braunfels and, because he served in the Navy during World War II, he was honored with a special ceremony at the National Cemetery in San Antonio too. While it was a sad trip, Earl had a great life and catching up with everyone at the events was nice. Read more from his obituary here.
