Our Old Kitchen

Big news!  Matty and I are moving!

We’re not going far; just up the road a few minutes to Santa Monica. After eight years at my old place, I’m now realizing that we managed to pack a TON of stuff into very little space… especially the kitchen. (The moving estimator told me that we have quite a bit more “stuff” than the average one-bedroom place. Oy!)

The movers are coming on Wednesday, but we’re schlepping all the fragile stuff on our own before then — and emptying the storage unit, too. That means we’re between kitchens right now.

The gas isn’t turned on yet at the new place, so we don’t have a working stove, and we’ve been eating out a lot. We’re already starting to feel a little yucky from all the take-out. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s have tons of (fairly) healthful prepared foods, but it’s also getting quite expensive… and it’s still no substitute for homemade.

I’m sure we’ll make it through, and come Wednesday night, we’ll be cooking our first dinner together in the new place. Can’t wait!

What do you do when you move? Do you still manage to cook? Or do you give in and just eat out for all your meals? Got any tricks for moving meals? Do tell!

Wow! Love your new kitchen – beautiful!

As for moving, we’ve done a fair bit of it over the years, and it seems, no matter how hard you try – eating out is just inevitable. Luckily you live in the land of TJ’s and Whole Foods. We did a brief stint in Park City, Utah a few years ago, and yeah…not so much with the healthy or plentiful dining options… 😉
