In Response to Your Requests…

You gentlemen may sit this one out…unless you would like to see where people love to gather in my home.  Here’s photos taken today of my 15′ X 18′ kitchen in Sfantu Gheorghe, Romania.  Curtains are to be made and put up next week.

Welcome to my kitchen - konyha, as seen when standing in the door. The 3 kitchen windows are 54" tall X 30" wide letting in lots of light.

Across the room from the table you see the little expresso coffee maker sitting atop the cabinet with a piece of wood almost covering the hole where an apartment sized dishwasher is supposed to be. Immediately to the right of the coffee maker is the stainless steel sink, 13" X 14" X 5.5" deep, with drainboard.

A view of the kitchen door that opens onto the entry hall. Notice the nice glass blocks in the wall next to the Hungarian handcrafted pottery clock (a welcome gift from Gusti & Aranka).

Moving past the sink, you see the cabinet extend to the apartment size electric cook top and oven next to the East wall and the 3rd window.

A closer look at the table which extends to seat 10. Notice the Dutch framed hearth scene that we've had since we left Holland in 1965.

And here you see Zoli Baci, my neighbor who owns the ice cream shop, standing in the street that runs in front of my house, finishing up the fence between his property and mine. Now, my yard is safely surrounded by a fence with only a front gate that locks, and a gate to the driveway which bolts on the inside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for visiting, via cyberspace, my kitchen.  Maybe one day, if God wills,  you’ll come in person to put your feet under the table and enjoy a big bowl of Hungarian goulash that Gusti cooks in a huge cast iron pot over the open fire!  — Anne
