The HVAC guy came out Monday afternoon and installed the valve on the gas line (thank god we had one run already). It took him about 30 minutes and that included him going and getting the correct sized valve. I was going to get some action shots, but before I knew it, the stove was installed. In about a half an hour we had a fully functioning stove.
And I cooked us a full meal Monday night and it was extremely enjoyable. I also will say that I've never cooked a meal so fast. I used the convection oven to roast a head of garlic and then make garlic cheese bread. I made some red sauce and then some delish cheese ravioli. It was a wonderful meal to test out our newest addition to the family. I'm in love.
J has already asked me if I was going to start treating the stove like a child. Probably, not. Okay, I probably will, but I mean cooking makes me so happy and having a stove like this puts me over the moon.
And if you turn to the right you'll see a fridge with a working water and ice dispenser. Yup, we finally moved the water line this past weekend. It's so nice. We have ice and water at the push of a button again. Which we both agree, makes us drink a lot more water. Yay!
And I've started staining the open shelves, so hopefully by the end of the week we'll have those up and ready to go. I can't believe that the kitchen is almost "done".
