Reason #2413 I love my new apartment – New kitchen!

I’m LOVING our new downtown digs. One of the many reasons I’m in love with it? Our new AMAZING kitchen. AND we’ve been busy 🙂 When we’re not getting takeout or trying one of the many new awesome restaurants within walking distance, we’ve been cooking!

The meals we’ve tried out so far – with our new kitchen, new dishes and new pots and pans, are as follows (and shown below):

Chicken sausage marinara

Crab cakes (recipe here) with dijon garlic sauce

A West Side Market meal – shrimp scampi with shrimp, pasta and salad all from westside market

Chicken sausage and peppers with salad

 Salmon and asparagus

A Greek inspired meal – homemade chicken shawarma with garlic yogurt sauce and couscous salad
