That's gorgeous.

Though I would have wanted two big sinks.

Beautiful Kayelle! You will love the granite, it's great for rolling out pastry and kneading bread.


Our dinner was meatloaf and Greek pasta salad.....I repurposed the leftover Greek salad from last night by adding bow tie pasta :)

Kayelle, those are nice looking counters! Congrats. I especially like the matching granite backsplash.

Thanks Andy, I like them too. I know the fashion these days is "glass tiles" of some sort for the backsplash but this is timeless, and I hope to never again have "tile" (or grout) in my vocabulary.

Thanks Rocky!

I got a great deal yesterday on turkey thigh meat and since today is the first day of DH's low cholesterol no gluten/wheat/soy/dairy/casiein/refined sugar diet, I thought it would be perfect to make taco salads.

I made salsa and guacamole, then used baby romaine, cucumber, grape tomatoes and green onion as the base. DH has this really good non-dairy/soy cheese with jalapeno and garlic (no, it is really good!) so we used that on the hot meat, the then salsa and guacamole as "dressing". It was really good!

Kayelle, I love your new countertops! We will be doing our kitchen this fall and I can't wait. I will be asking you how you like the granite! We have been trying to figure out what is best - something that will be good for fondant rolling is a key point for me!
