The pics in this post celebrate some of the dishes cooked in our current kitchen. Not all of them are low carb. This was a Pumpkin Beef Soup cooked last year.
Tonight we celebrate our last night in our tiny kitchen. It has been the heart of our apartment, providing life-giving sustenance and “nuff niceness” as we say in Jamaica.
So what is the last supper?
Nothing fancy. After all, Lij has packed all the spices except the salt, black pepper and chili powder as well as onions and garlic. Also, I still have some herbs in the fridge and some beautiful Jamaican thyme in the freezer. So, we are having Thyme Roasted Chicken and Garlic Roasted Veggies (cauliflower, broccoli and carrots).

By tomorrow this time, we will be moving into a bigger kitchen with enough workspace.
This is the kitchen we have had since we have been married. I remember many midnight culinary masses after Lij came home from work. I remember the pasta dishes. I promise to post a low carb recipe Shrimp and Mussel Pasta with Cream Sauce for this dish that Lij cooked once we are settled in our new kitchen.
And so very many meals, like this Tiger Shrimp Soup had me licking my fingers and going back for seconds.
It was in this kitchen that I first made homemade bread from scratch with my own two hands and got so good that I could gift them to close friends.
It was in this kitchen that I perfected my Jamaican Johnny Cakes, earning the respect of Lij’s palate as I prepared our first honeymoon meal.
O my dear tiny kitchen, please give as much love to your new occupants as you have given to us.
