I could have run around the house taking pictures of the 2nd coat of white paint on the bathroom ceiling; or the corner tile in the kitchen behind the stove that was re-glued (it may not be a word in your house but it most definitely is in our house) but it hardly seemed like a riveting blog post.
Neither did the window sill in the kitchen or the trim around the door.
I did take one photo, just to let you know we aren’t slacking off completely:
This is the door between the kitchen and the den. We are discussing whether or not to keep it.
I vote no because it’s in the way, blocking off my pantry.
Mon mari votes yes because there is a draft coming through when I let the dogs in and out. I pointed out that if he let the dogs in and out he wouldn’t notice the draft.
We’re still discussing.
Regardless, the door frame needed to be refinished. It didn’t look like something that could easily be ripped off and replaced and we didn’t want to cover it up…. So, the stripping begins.
Underneath the brown paint is the lovely turquoise that was on the other doors, followed by gray, then white. Not bad considering how old it probably is.
So, no fascinating house update this week….
How about some fantastic enchiladas instead?
There are many commercial products, common in the US, that aren’t available here (bottled salad dressings for one). But all of the supermarkets have an ‘International’ food section. And the part of the section labeled ‘Etats-Unis’ (U.S.) is usually filled with Old El Paso products: taco kits, fajita kits, tortillas, taco sauce, etc.
Sometimes, I just can’t resist…. This is my nod to convenience food!
Well, except for the beans. I’ve been playing with the dried black beans I found on our last trip to Andorra. (Apparently, I’m easily amused)
The recipe, Turkey & Black Bean Enchiladas, has been updated, nutrition information added, and re-posted here: Turkey & Black Bean Enchiladas.
Leave the turkey out and add some cheese to the beans for a vegetarian version.
So, it’s March 1st….. I’m thinking garden….
