We made pasta tonight for dinner with our neighbors. The kitchen was a hoppin' with four burners going (that's all of them) and it all turned out nicely.
This picture shows the color our counters are turning. I love that they get stained and show signs of age. Gracefully we go into our second year with them. The goal with the color was to look natural without looking new. They look like 2" thick pieces of tanned leather, the kind they make the best club chairs out of for fat men who smoke cigars and rule the stock market. Or something less pretentious.
