The kitchen was not the only room that I remolding in my place, in fact I built a new room. A foyer was incorporated in the house. Before that, I only had a laconic and solitaire entryway front door in a horrible 7,2 sq ft porch.
You know, it's really hard to undo a bad first impression. A foyer is a terrific opportunity to make a statement about who you are and what your house is like so you have to make it count. So I demolished the porch walls and build up new walls with a large window. Is almost finish they are painting the walls and I am thinking in decoration, right now. And I bought these beautiful vases and those beautiful skinny dry branches with a delicate wood detail. What do you think? Isn’t it beautiful?
As long as they don’t finish the paint I was seeking for some ruled out photos that I pretend save in CD, Don’t ask me why I would do that, if I ruled up once , but definitely is me .
So, I found a folder from my husband’s birthday and I saw my roasted red onion tart.
I was inspired for one recipe (Roasted red onions) that I found in Donna Hay’s book; Off the Shelf; Cooking from the pantry. I discover and bought this book in my last vacation, and was love at first side. Her recipes are seldom difficult. In fact, they are simple. But she inspires beauty in her creations
