Merritts a Mention

After all that range ruminating, Andrew's mom gave us her O'Keefe & Merritt. I think it's from the '20s. The oven is teeny tiny, but it looks fabulous in the kitchen. We drove up to Visalia to pick it up. Last night I cooked my first meal on the new stove in the new kitchen in the new house. I finally feel at home! Thanks to Pie in the Sky the dinner was so good and comforting. Unpacking endless boxes of books and dishes requires a little comfort and the tuscan spaghetti really hit my spots. There was even enough room in the oven for a dish of roasting asparagus and a loaf of bread.... Not too bad...

Oh my gosh--I LOVE Merrit & O'Keefe ranges! Lucky you! I love to cook and my husband does even more (he's actually superb at it!), but that's not really why I like them--I know nothing about their cooking ability. I just love vintage stuff and they are so beautifully charactered! Bake on sista! xo
