Just kosher salt. Maybe cut up some fresh mozzarella and basil.



Those are the 4 low voltage lights above my island. LOL

Wow! your island is even more impressive than your tomater.

We don't eat breakfast, but cheese, crackers and wine go down good there.

The front of the cabinet area was from a matching cabinet on another wall in the kitchen. I took the face frame and doors off an built the rest of the island myself. The carcas is oak veneered plywood. The top is a plywood base with black absolute 18" tiles and a laminated solid oak border. (bent by yours truly). The butcher block top was rough sawn rock maple that I milled down into 1 3/4" strips then glued together. The maple was bought in 2 pieces: 10" wide x 2 1/4" thick by 10' long. The work surface is 2' x 4' so there's plenty of room.

y Uncle gave me the old school stools that go perfectly with the rest of the kitchen (in an eclectic way).

Oh yeah....I ate the tomater (half anyway - lol) with some fresh mozzarella and basil. What a treat! I love how the beefsteaks are so fleshy. I told the DW that if I had some toast, it could easily be dinner.
