I have similar cut outs in my apartment. The built in desks have been removed, but the outlets are in similar spots and the placement of the cutouts are in main locations like yours. One has been used to display things - you can put in shelves pretty easily. In another one, we did what a lot of people suggested here and got a tension rod and put curtains across it and use it for storage (our cats also like hiding out in there). I agree with another commenter that it would really nice if you simply put up a curtain across that whole wall with the windows.

We keep a roll in the house for quick dinners. We just slice it into 1/4 to 1/2 slices and warm them up in a non-stick pan. The slices are great as a base for just about anything you'd serve with rice or pasta or potatoes. Sometimes we'll put fried eggs and sauteed veggies on top, or chili, pulled pork, chunky red marinara, beef stew, etc. Definitely one of our pantry staples!

Yes! The Logitech M570 roller ball mouse. Love the scrolling and programmable gestures, plus it has saved my wrist. It made such a clear difference for me that my roommate and friend went out and each got one too.
