I do not regret getting the butcher block counters one bit. Sometimes, I just want to stand and stare at them they're so pretty and turned out so well. These are the solid oak ones from Ikea called Numerar.
The sealer really brings out the character in the wood, you can see every detail. It also made them look a little darker, which I like, too.
When I first moved in, I remember thinking how I liked this big sink, but it needed a little loving care to bring out it's best. After a lot of scrubbing and new drains and faucet, she looks beautiful, like a brand new sink!
You know what is funny, I have more fun using my kitchen now. I love cooking in it and it even makes the food taste better :p Really! hehe Well, to me it does.
This morning I made me a smoothie, I may start posting some of my cooking on my blog because I love to cook. This kind of smoothie may not be everyones thing, it's a green smoothie.
If you or your kids don't like to eat vegetables or greens, this is a great way to eat them instead. I put in strawberries, bananas, mango and peaches, fresh OJ, coconut milk, honey, and then just stuck the fresh spinach leaves in. Blend and it turns into a green smoothie.
You can't taste the spinach at all! All I taste is the yummy goodness of the fruit.
I can hear a couple of my friends screaming ewww, but you really must try it. You would be pleasantly surprised.
Oh and making it on my pretty butcher block counter made it taste a little better, too. :-D
