No, this is not the beauty either. He's just the installation guy making a big mess in my kitchen. Not only did he have to remove the old microwave, but the frame thing holding it on the wall. Of course the new frame didn't even begin to match the old holes, so new ones were drilled, both in the wall and in the bottom of the cabinet.
Bye bye Mr. Microwave whose parts kept falling on my head. I'm sure that broken door frame would not have lasted much longer.
Hello Beauty Number Two!!! Although they told me it was going to hang down further, giving me less cooking room, they were incorrect. Now all I need is a stove to match, but that will have to wait. Surprisingly, it works like a charm. You never know nowadays if that's going to happen.
By the way, the salesman told me not to expect any of the appliances made in this day and age to last more than eight years. My stove at the ranch lasted 40 and my Mom's fridge 35 years. Apparently they don't make them like they used to.
There was one purchase in Tubac that I didn't show you. This be my new gorgeous pot. I rather imagine it's called something more fancy than pot, but it now resides in my back yard. I love it and could use two more, but again, that will have to wait until my wallet rejuvenates itself.
Another new addition to the house would be the lovely printer given to me by Lynn and Dave Cross. Thank you SO much. It works like a charm, copying three new recipes I'm passing along. There has been another foray into how to cook delicious meals when you're single, on a perpetual diet and recipe-uninspired. I'll explain it all tomorrow!!
