Normally I am not at all fond of "orange" colors, but I must say the color you chose is very pleasing. It looks like a very efficient space. I especially like the way the pans are hung on the wall. I can't wait to start filling my new kitchen .

Here is a recipe I just found on cooks.com:

ZUCCHINI PIE (Mock Apple Crisp)
Read more about it at http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1937...235203,00.html
Content Copyright 2011 Cooks.com - All rights reserved.

4 c. flour
2 c. sugar
3 sticks butter (soften)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt


Crust: Blend and put about 1/2 of mixture into the bottom of a 9x12 cake pan. Also up the sides. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

FILLING:

8 c. zucchini, peeled and sliced very thin
2/3 c. lemon juice


Cook zucchini in lemon juice, uncovered, until tender, stirring occasionally. Add: 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. nutmeg Simmer for a while until the liquid slowly evaporates (not dry). Spread filling on your crust and sprinkle the remainder of the crust on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.


Be sure to add the lemon juice to it as I remember that as being key to getting a fruity taste.

I have been dying to tell you folks for two weeks now but I was afraid to for fear that the deal would fall through. But now it's official. We are homeowners! That great kitchen if finally mine. I am such a happy camper. Now the real work begins. All 10 rooms have to be painted, not to mention the back porch and the basement. I am going to be so busy.
It took us a full 4 months to buy this house (which was a foreclosure) but it is finally done. There are lots of exciting things to tell you but that is the main one. Right now I have to get my clothes changed so I can get busy on painting those cupboards.

Boy you got that right. Thank God for Habitat for Humanity Restore. We had to put in 8 doors and the hardware (hinges and doorknobs) All of that came to about $50.00 because they were having a big sale. We also got a bathroom vanity and a toilet (beautiful) from them for next to nothing. But anything we can't get there seems to cost an arm and a leg. We got really lucky yesterday at Menards. Bought 5 gallons of paint for 11 dollars each and there was an 11 dollar rebate on them so they were actually free. (ceiling paint) I wish I could find deals like that on the wall paint!
