My kitchen story

Cooking, cleaning, parenting, all new territories for me. 
I have been domesticated.
I have turned myself into that "perfect little wifey"
Haha not quite I'm still a work in progress.
My story is to show you how i taught myself to cook in a kitchen that is way less then appealing.
Here is my little corner in the kitchen.

Yes I have avocado green Metal cabinets!
I have basically no storage
I have a stove with an oven that doesn't and hasn't worked in years AND only two of the four electric burners work.
So i have basically taught myself to cook with two burners, a microwave, and a toaster oven.
I know crazy!! I want an oven installed so bad, it's literally the only thing i ask for every holiday that involves presents. I dunno if it's just his laziness or what but my love has still not answered my wishes. 
 OH I also have a slow cooker (which I love finding new uses for)

I absolutely hate my kitchen.. Its just not at all up to date. My whole house needs updating but I've been researching the best way to spruce up my little home without doing many changes OR spending a lot of money.  ANY IDEAS??

 sorry the rest of the pics are soo dark... I use my phone for pictures  **wishes for a new working camera**

Even though I don't have much I have learned to make the best with what I Got!
I'm much more appreciative of the small things these days that most people take for granted,,, like having an oven!


  1. So true, we do too often take things for granted. That's awesome how you've had to get creative though
