Progress on the Amazing New Verona Stove!

I remembered!  We are about the 1/3 mark on the mini kitchen remodel.  This is where the new stove will go, the hood vent has been hung and vented, part 1 of the Gordon's work.  Waiting for the mirror backsplash being installed by C&H Glass and the electrical half (part 2) of the work done by Gordon's Electric of Pendleton.  Fingers crossed that should all be done by Friday!  Those guys are all amazing and so nice about working with each other's schedules.  It is appreciated!

So this is what it looks like right is NOT pretty!
but remember, this amazing Verona stove is going to fill in that ugly spot:
It is scheduled to arrive on Monday....
then we are going to go Buckwild Baby!

Fancy Schmancy...

So I have shared and shared how excited we are for our new BBQ venture.  I don't think I have shared I have totally pined for a fancy commercial style stove for ever and ever.  So guess what my husband says?  Honey, we need a bigger stove, order one!  OMG can you just imagine how fast I was online and shopping for the lovely Ventura stove below...oddly enough I had this in my wish list -WEIRD!  LOL! 

So here is our stove currently, very nice, convection, dual burners...not big enough to make 3 batches at a time...
This is for sale by the way!  Original price was $2198, asking $800 - Hood Vent is also for sale $250.
-feel free to email me!

This is where the new stove will go which coincidentally is where the original wood burning stove went in 1915!
(this marble topped base cabinet will be for sale also!  Its going to get a pretty bead board back and be just cute as heck)

This is what the new stove looks like!  The new hood vent looks a lot like the old one just bigger.
Isn't she gorgeous!

Ok I will try to be good and keep up on my pictures during the remodeling process...we should be all done by the end of the month -Yippee!
Thanks for sharing with me...

Everything Personal....

For all of last month we had been crushing hard on getting ready for the Pendleton Buckaroo BBQ challenge with our new BBQ venture, BBQ Buckwild.  It has been an amazing rush...organizing what we want to have showing, what we need to take, how can we do a good job making sure everything is pretty and perfect.  Well as perfect as we can make it not ever having done a Challenge before!  My sweet husband has been practicing and making some amazing BBQ.  I have been creating lots of special promo items and trying to make us look as uniquely professional as possible. 

Had a bit of a setback mid month, hence the delay in posting, computer BLUE SCREENED!  Luckily we found a great technician and he fixed me up.  The Challenge went really well and we ended up finishing 3rd in Ribs...great for our first time! 

My husband has FINALLY agreed to let me try adding to our line of please check back on the BBQ Buckwild facebook page to see our adventures on that if you are curious.  Here is a picture of the crew in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Challenge..

PS I will be posting exciting new changes to our kitchen-directly related to our sauce venture! Can't wait to share!
