The new kitchen is still very young and hasn't fully developed or matured yet but she was ready to be used for the first time. It wasn't an elaborate meal or very complete in any way, it never is the first time, but it was very satisfying. I worked her up to it slowly, started getting her hot, and things began to sizzle. By the time it was done she had performed beautifully and I was fully satisfied.
I had to take some photos before it all happened. There are still many things needed to make it complete, like the salamandra still needs to be mounted yet, and many more decisions need to be made before other things are added, but getting her fired-up and put through her paces is the plan for May Day. The evening of the final day of April was the last time I would see her untouched. She was ready, this kitchen wanted to cook!
The last time I would see my Drago in its pristine state. She now had her ceremonial shawls draped over her shapely handles. The only thing left to do was give her my pork and start makin' bacon. Even toasted some buns.
Looking in from a different perspective. This stainless table was a good find at Costco for $1500mx. You can see my pasta maker fastened to the side, it can be re-situated when necessary for certain operations.
Tomorrow is the tianguis and I will load up on veggies and such but for this evening I had only been to the carnicería. El Matador is a large carnicería located close-by just on the other side of the central camionera from me. I was able to buy some bread there, some bulk mayo that has a very good flavor and seems a bit lighter than the commercial brands I usually buy. So I had what I needed for a basic Bacon sandwich, no L, nor T, no extras, this baby was mine alone and I was going to put the pork to her and be done but I ended up staying for a couple cups of coffee and a few cigarettes afterwards. I think we're going to be spending a lot of time together after last night, I'm sure of that.
