Anyone else tired of cooking from the holidays? Let's just say that I'm going to be using this a lot this week. And since I am, I thought I would show it to you. When we built we decided to put the range in the island which meant a cabinet mounted microwave wouldn't work. So, we put it in the end of the island on a shelf. This allowed us to purchase a counter top model that was hundreds of $$ cheaper too. Under that is a basket with cookbooks close at hand. My DH actually designed the space under the microwave for a networked printer but we still haven't bought one.
Behind the skinny door on the side is storage for cookie sheets and pizza pans and a little drawer for knives. It really has been convenient to have the microwave down there. So... warm it up, boys. I'm not cooking tonight.
