We have moved in to the new new house. So new it’s not quite complete – the builders reliably arrive at 7am on weekdays. The dirt outside waits for green. Inside, we shuffle boxes, search for things constantly, and settle on spots for stuff. Bang things up. The kitchen bench went in this week, and the kitchen tap delivers water. The bread makers were fired up today and add to the heat load in this passive-ish house. Dinner #1 in the new kitchen was an entire page from Al Brown Stoked. Jerk chick, orangey salsa and a potato salad, though he called for kumara. A new new recipe for me. New year, new house; new kitchen, new kai.
