Dad’s Kitchen makeover

As far back as I can remember,  Dad worked along side 

 Mom in the kitchen.

Together they would cook for our family of eight.

After all of us left home, it was still Dad and Mom cooking

together for the two of them.

Now that Dad is alone, he still enjoys cooking  some of his meals. 

For Father’s Day, children and  grandchildren

chipped in $$$ to replace Dad’s old linoleum floor.

After the floor was replaced …. you guessed it …  the walls

and cabinets needed painting and one thing led to another

and before we knew it, our modest Dad had a kitchen

makeover.

for breakfast.

Bon appetit Dad.
