Well…  other than a bit of hole-filling and minor detail work on the trim, it’s done.  And to paraphrase Billy Chrystal, It Looks Mahvelous!

I really couldn’t be happier.  It’s one of those things I never thought we would do, that I (ten years ago) didn’t want to do.  But it has made a huge improvement in the room.  Everything looks better.

I am going to have all sorts of fun making messes in here!

Since we had our corned beef and cabbage on Monday and sandwiches on Tuesday, I decided to marinate pork chops in soy sauce, rice wine, garlic, sesame oil, and sambal oelek.  While they were marinating, I was putting up the final trimwork.

Out to the grill I went, cooked up a bit of baby broccoli and some rice.

One more dinner and it’s off to San Francisco!

There are going to be LOTS of great meals coming our way.
