Anniversary dish

A few months from now, hubby and I will be celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve been living together that long. We don’t normally celebrate it like going out or eating in a fab restaurant where they play aria electric bass. We dine out in our favorite pizza place and celebrate the occasion with our kids. This year, I’m planning to cook something special for my family. I’m not an expert cook, but I will try to learn a new dish for them. Can you suggest a seafood or meat dish that I can cook for our anniversary? Any suggestions are most welcome!

Kitchen improvement

I want to have an improved kitchen area. If possible, I want a kitchen make-over. What I have now is plain and bare-looking kitchen that also shares part of the laundry area. With a limited budget, we can only afford a can of paint for wall painting. It’s the least we can do to make our kitchen presentable. Hubby said he can apply a fresh coat of peach paint. Do you think a shade of peach is a nice color for the kitchen? We can decide on other details like flooring options later on after we have completed the wall painting. But like our other plan for home repair, the implementation of our kitchen project depends on the availability of fund.

Oh, we may also add black gloss sideboards for the kitchen cabinet. I can’t wait to see what my modest kitchen will look like after this little kitchen project is done.
