Today, I laid down for an afternoon nap (what a luxury). My husband, Antonio, awoke me with a surprise dinner! He grilled New York strip with a homemade spicy Latin rub topped with a garlic herb butter, sauteed spinach, cheddar-stuffed grilled poblano peppers, and ripe roma tomatoes. All of this was finished with a glass of Riesling. Take a look…
Mmmmm! The steak was cooked just the way I like it – medium with a hot pink center. For Christmas, Antonio and I treated each other to the “Outdoor Gourmet” gas grill. It’s so nice – lot of storage, four burners, a granite countertop, and a side burner. We’ve been using this bad boy every week, grilling the most delicious meals!
We love entertaining so the gas grill is a perfect addition to our newly renovated kitchen. Here’s a pic…
This is a picture of my red wall… Red is my favorite color and I’ve always wanted to have a red wall in my house. It’s so SPICY! Studies show that red stimulates appetite so it’s a perfect color for the kitchen. The kitchen table is configured to seat six but we have a leaf that enlarges it to comfortably seat eight with plenty of space in the middle for food!
The other feature I love about this kitchen is the tile backsplash I designed.
It’s not a huge kitchen but it’s tricked out with some cool features such as Cherry cabinets, the Quartz countertop (better than granite – never needs sealing and contains Microban), a tilt-out to hide the sponges, a pull-out spice rack, and anti-slam drawers that glide to a smooth close. It’s a little dream kitchen but it’s my dream kitchen. 🙂
So if you’re ready for cuisine thats “yummy in your tummy,” come and visit us in New Orleans! We’ll treat you to Southern hospitality and fabulous food with our indoor and outdoor kitchens!
