Warm Spinach and Chickpea Salad with Toasted Goat Cheese; Our house is a heavy house — 14 Comments

  1. it’s always nice to see a new home taking shape – and as susan says, if you can still cook during renovations, you’re doing fine!

  2. He: Ignores me, deciding the question is too stupid to answer.
    ….LOL I have the same “He” in my house 🙂

  4. Gee, and I was so taken with the pink and green striped wallpaper! Too bad it’s going away – NOT! 🙂 I’m gonna love reading about the renovation – if you need to spout about it more than once a week, you can always open a new blog exclusively for that! 🙂

  5. Only once a week for such good laughs. . .
    That conversations actually sounds a bit dangerous even if I have participated in it with the “he” I live with. . . . question is too stupid to answer . . . I ask a lot of those it seems.

  6. I hope you’re going to keep at least one wall and piece of trim intact with that wonderful wall paper!
    That salad looks divine, especially the goat’s cheese. Mmmmmm!!
    : I prefer to use toilets over bushes
    How do you ensure that the toilets don’t teeter precariously when they’re placed on top of shrubbery?

  7. wow! Both of you are brave to redo the whole flooring and stuff. We had toilets like yours but we couldn’t knock the walls in between because there is a radiator on that wall and it will costs a lot more and a lot of work make it into a big bathroom.
    Looking forwarding to see how your renovation went. We just redid our kitchen and install a bathroom downstairs. We hope that is the last of the renovation we need to do in this house.

  8. Susan, I’m hoping we can actually be living in our ‘new’ home before Christmas!
    Maria, food is important… Some days that’s all we have to look forward to ;-))
    Meredith, I think it’s a guy gene – especially if they are ‘handy’ guys…
    Lydia, what’s life with out sheetrock dust… Or, in our case, brick dust.
    Ulrike, I agree. One must take a stand (sic) about some things!
    Zoomie, I found an extra roll – I’d be happy to send it to you
    Tanna, so, apparently, do I… One could say, too many…
    Elizabeth, I DO love it when someone picks up on those bits….
    Joanna, I’m trying to exercise restraint… I doubt if I’ll succeed
    Cooking Ninja, I totallyt understand! The radiator placement in our last house kept my cooking area very small… Way too much work to change!

  9. Have I told you lately that you are my favorite story teller. I always leave here in a better mood.
    So I do hope you plan on more than once a week updates….you’re hysterical, plus your recipes are delicious and given the conditions I will definitely stop complaining about my kitchen.
    Thanks for sharing.
