Kitchen Remodel

 I've been wanting to blog this special snack one member of the team made for the Sunday school snack. I know how much some of you love foodie posts. 

I don't want to go super in-depth but let me just name.the.ingredients in this incrediblesnack called "Kids Salad". It has cubed hot dog, cucumber, pineapple, tomato, grated carrot, and jicama - all mixed into a classic dressing of ketchup.

We appreciate the burden our people have for the kids and the effort they put forth!

I've also yearned to show you all this Sunday school snack. This one is called the "Sandwichon" - The Giant Sandwich. And by that of course, I mean GIANT. The top layer is a ham sandwich, the middle is a spicy jalapeno sandwich, and the bottom is peanut butter and jelly. Slathered in a mayo-cream concoction.


 This is where the SS snack and the main point of this post come together in perfectly providential harmony. 

Look at the above picture and focus on the counter beneath it.
This amazing Sandwichon is set on a concrete counter, mounted at an impossibly awkward level. For ten long years we've struggled with our very lacking church kitchen. It was just plain ugly!! 

Of course when I go look for "before" pictures of the kitchen, I can find none. 
But here are a couple that will help you get the point.

Here, Franny washes dishes at the tiny kitchen sink that leaked. 

Another sis rearranges items on the flimsy shelf and made-for-midgets counter.

While Mom and Austin were in the US earlier this year fixing Austin's leg, Dad got inspired to redo the kitchen. Pastor Riley in Aransas Pass, Texas had given an offering to complete this project. Thank you to him and his church!

 I have no words after reviewing the above pictures. 

 Let's just gaze in awe-inspired silence -


Impressive, isn't it?! 

It is still a very small space...probably around 12 by 12? 
But spaces are now being maximized and things can be put away inside drawers and cupboards instead of sitting out in the open, gathering dust. 
We love our new kitchen! 

Feel free to leave a comment below, letting my dad know what a great job he did! 
Or, if you'd like to spice YOUR Sunday school class up, I'll gladly pass the recipes along to the above snacks!

I just read him your comment! He says he did it with his eyes closed and his hands tied behind his back! And that pictures do not do the kitchen justice LOL.
