I am officially moved out. There’s still a lot of organizing to be done, but the biggest step is done. The closing was on Wednesday, and today for the first Friday in almost 5 years no mortgage payment came out of my account.
For the next 15 months or so I will be living with my parents while I wait for my new place to be built. I didn’t think I’d be able to sell as quickly as I did, but I’m glad the process is over. The last few months have been incredibly stressful for me, I’ve lost more sleep than I’ll ever be able to catch up on, and I even found a few gray hairs (the horror!) In the end I really just wanted to get out as fast as I could.
That doesn’t mean I did have any good times in my old condo. It was my first place, and I’ll alway remember it fondly. The space was huge, with lots of great light and a wonderfully long countertop.I’m definitely going to miss the kitchen. In honour of the big move I thought I’d take a look back at some of my favourite things that have come out of that kitchen, sort of like an In Memoriam post.
Probably my favourite post. I made them in honour of William and Kate’s engagement. The news was heartbreaking, but the hand pies were delicious and comforting.
What I loved about making the Bacon Jam was that I had no idea how it would turn out. Even after looking at all the ingredients I couldn’t really imagine the taste. The first bite was really quite magical.
Another experiment. This was the first time I tried inventing a recipe for my blog, and I was really pleased with how the cookies turned out. It’s hard to wrong with a Nutella filled cookie!
Who knew pear ketchup could taste so good?
