Cabbage Salad Recipe and a Wine Bar

I think I may have posted this recipe before, but so what? LOL
I made a stunner of a cabbage salad yesterday. I did not have all the ingredients so took the posters advice and just did carrots, cabbage and chickpeas. I also lacked limes so used lemons instead for the dijon-lime dressing. Dare I say it was quite yummy and a lovely accompaniment to my Basic Salmon Loaf dish.

On a side note, my husband is converting a closet into a wine bar. One of the more entertaining things about my husband is if I happen to mention something along the lines of, "Hey I was looking at Houzz and saw this neat banquette seating area." He will begin to measure things before I can say, "That we can do one day." Or "It looks nice, but we do not need one, etc."
Before we bought a house he had also talked about one day getting more hands on with tools. (Get all of your minds out of the gutter.) And I have to say, the man is becoming skilled. Hence why I like to show him things I myself would like to do, but can't. This basically comes down to me lacking any desire to master a miter saw or the whole measure ten times cut once concept.
Anyway, one of the positives about living with someone who aspires to become more handy is that they can tackle things without having to call some in every single time.

And while we are on the subject of building, here are a few pictures after our room was done before anything was really moved in. The transom window was the contractors idea to let more light in and it is a favorite feature. The ceiling was raised as well which adds a nice touch and that small door is to a crawl space he uncovered when he took down the wall! I will get a shot of that for you to see.
FYI - The colors are much better in person, but you get the idea. And yes, I asked for the radiator to be painted orange.

There used to be a closet where the door to the room is and removing it made such a difference.

I will try to get newer photos and no you are not crazy, we have three colors in the room. Of course we have no pictures on the walls yet because my husband does not want to put holes into them just yet. I know what he means, but at some point, I am going to need some art work because blank walls make me twitch. I think a plant would be a nice addition in here as well. We shall see.

Have a lovely weekend!
