Psst … Look What I Found!

VI’m crazy about my latest Ebay find! I’ve been looking for a range since we bought the mountain house. I even had the cabinet maker leave a 48-inch ‘hole’ in the cabinets—a girl knows what she wants. Ebay rewarded my long search. I pressed ‘Buy Now’ to purchase a 48-inch, dual fuel, creamy white, six burners and a griddle, open burner Viking range. We found out from the serial number that it’s even self cleaning! The high back splash and the hood were also included … I’m a happy cook!

BTW, her name is ‘Ina.’ She arrived from Boston on a delivery truck driven by a great husband and wife team, Henrietta and Elijah of ICann Move U. Check them out on Facebook.  A crew from Up Town Kitchens.net installed Ina on Thursday—best installers in the world—and I’ve been cooking up a Southern storm ever since.

    I love Ina…some things are just meant to be! Nothing like a new Viking range to inspire the chef and just in time for all the yummy things available at the farmer’s markets! I love seeing your mountain house projects!
