I rarely get dinner on the table in less than an hour. I do not feel like I pick particularly difficult to prepare recipes or dishes, but I lose so much time on prep work. If I have to chop up more than one or two vegetables, as well as slice meat (like a stir fry with fresh veggies), I can spend the better part of 45 minutes with my knife and cutting board. Maybe I'm just lacking with knife skills, but it can really put a damper on following through with my meal plan for the following night!

We have a similar window situation - casement windows that require screens to swing in and windows swing out. We have not yet committed to panels or drapes because the windows and frames are gorgeous, and I did not want to cover up any of it.

I signed up to post a comment because this looks just like our living room - minus the architectural details. We even have the Petrie sofa and chair!
