Life in Our World – Our Outdoor Kitchen

http://www.vivianosdesign.com/?page_id=368

Nope.  Not this one.


Nope.  Not this one, either.



Yup.  This one.  It's ours.  All ours . . .



The trash compactor.  


The stove top.


The hot pads.


The blue sink.  The green faucet.  The natural wood counter top with a polyethylene, non woven fabric overlay. 


The dishwasher.


The garbage disposal.


It works like a charm.  Today Calvin and I froze 150 bags of corn in it.

Love it! That's a lot of corn.

That is a lot of corn. You are so thrifty and much, much more Janey Paney!

Love your outdoor kitchen - looks about like mine when I can peaches!

Jill said...

You guys are the best!

Cali said...

I should have loaned you my electric carving knife. Better yet, you should have gone to goodwill and bought one. Everyone else's electric carving knives are there ;)

I liked your trash compactor and dishwasher best.

You are so adorable in your personality, your looks and your mannerisms. How I would love to be your eternal companion...meaning a little mouse in your pocket 24/7 or a fairy on your shoulder....just taking it all i. What a great life it would be. I would see, feel, think, do, smell, taste and learn so much. Your kitchen is perfect: Love your green faucet and your dishwasher the best. I can always count on you for a laugh. By the way what kind of corn did you grow? Keep those fabulous posts coming. You have a big fan club!!

I'll be honest. I'm glad I'm not apart of that sticky mess, but I am sad I won't get to eat it with you. How come we never did an outdoor kitchen growing up? What a great idea. I'm glad you posted a picture of you. It's good to see you again. :)

That looks like quite the set-up. And it looks easier to clean than the first two pictures (take that green faucet to it and you're done?). Hooray for the bounties of summer!

Mmmmmm, I bet that corn is so tasty!

Talk about wisdom and imagination working together! Truly, I love your outdoor kitchen, it is my favorite and they kind I work best in!

Kathy said...

I really need to do a better job of proof reading!

melanie said...

The blue sink and green faucet were my favorite. Nothing better than fresh corn all year long. I love your resourcefulness!

michelle said...

Wow! You guys make such a great team.

Lucy said...

You are adorable.

Love this! And your aside in earlier post about the outdoor refrigerator that keeps tomatoes fresh. So true! First year of vegetable garden for me and I keep coming in amazed at fresh salad greens no one has to pick over and check for slime!

Wish I could get an instant download of all your years of expereince in thrift and industry!

I love your outdoor kitchen! It may not be one of those trendy outdoor kitchens, but yours is ultimately functional! =) Anyway, kudos to your dishwasher and garbage disposal crew! :D

Interesting! For a while, I thought your outdoor kitchen was designed after the first two photos, but I was wrong, yours was original! Regardless of what your outdoor kitchen looks like, what’s more important is how you cook the food.
