Scenes from My Kitchen

Meet my kitchen. It doesn't have granite counter tops or stainless steel appliances and it's a little small, but that's OK. We get along pretty well. I still manage to make some pretty fabulous food. Tonight I was cooking Crispy Oven Fried Tilapia and Zucchini Pasta. I've got the fish all set to go in the oven, my pans ready on the stove and veggies all chopped. I've also got my gin on the rocks, which is my drink of choice while cooking. There's my evil microwave (once again the darned thing makes it into my blog). You can see open on my laptop in the corner. It's actually my old laptop, since I made the mistake once of bringing my shiny new laptop in the kitchen and spilling balsamic sauce in the keyboard. Ugh. But I really don't want to talk about that.....

Here's my super-full, but relatively organized pantry. I love having a big pantry because I tend to buy lots of stuff at the grocery store. I love grocery shopping (and did I mention that I work at the store too? Rather convenient, maybe a little too convenient.).

And here's me, looking all cute and chef-like for my hubby, who's taking my picture, while I sautee zucchini and boil pasta (yeah, so I'm bragging a little about doing two things at once). Not too bad, although I would like to loose about 10 pounds. Not sure if that's ever going to happen, seeing how stubborn my genes are. My jeans, however, are not stubborn, they are quite stretchy actually. Gotta love the Gap's Long and Lean.

So anyways, the results of my adventures in my kitchen tonight. Voila!


  1. Love the new blog, Dianne! I don't have a tripped out kitchen either. I think my countertops are from the 70's...white with gold flecks:/ And my stove is from the early eighties. Oh suits its purpose;)

    I have never tried talapia. Your recipe looks yummy though:) Maybe I will have to pick some up at the market next week.


  2. The tilapia looks so good. I like that it's oven fried. Heading over to allrecipes to check it out.
    You look fabulous. I also love Gap long & lean;)
