Living Through a Remodel

Well, I've got good news and I've got bad news. The good news is, we are FINALLY remodeling our kitchen and upstairs living area!! The bad news is, we are currently living in our basement. The good news is that I have a hair dressing studio in my basement, so I have room for a makeshift kitchen space. The bad news is my husband did not like the idea of using my shampoo bowl for a sink, so I place a dish pan inside the sink for cleaning.

We really enjoy entertaining, and we also love to watch American Idol each week. Our good friends love to watch as well, and since good friends don't mind cramped quarters, we invited them over to watch the show with us.  I planned to serve dessert, and then realized I don’t have an oven for baking!

Luckily, we have a local diner that makes delicious apple crisp, so I decided to purchase from The Apple Cup Café. I warmed them up in my microwave, served them with ice cream, and it was a huge hit. So, the moral of the story is, even if you don't have a kitchen, you can still have delicious apple desserts! Thank you Apple Cup Cafe!

Makeshift Kitchen Space

Stay tuned for more ways we are trying to stay sane during our remodel. I'll share a few pictures of the progress, too!
