Is anyone else finding it REALLY difficult to type February this year? I type all sorts of combinations before I get it right. Just me then?!
Anyway, let’s get on … I used to periodically join in with one of the most fascinating linkies around, In My Kitchen hosted by Fig Jam & Lime Cordial. For a nosy parker, there is nothing better than being given permission to have a good old peek at what is going on in kitchens up and down the land.
Well, I thought it was time I joined in too – I’m very lucky that I get sent products that people think Me, Derm & the girls would like to try – I’d like to share some of these with you as we go along. There will also be plans for what I intend on cooking in the coming month and no doubt plenty of cookbook action too!
The actual kitchen remains the same as the last time I joined in with ‘In My Kitchen’ from Fig, Jam & Lime Cordial – We are still fighting the eternal battle to get more light into our house. Even harder at this time of year, when it barely seems to get daylight. Hopefully in the next couple of months, the walls will at least get white and the window will be replaced by a bigger, clearer (and cleaner) version. I have already been buying some delightful little plant holders to match the white colour scheme.
I was invited to celebrate Australia Day last week down in London – Sadly I could not make the event but the kind people at Bundaberg Rum sent me a parcel including their rum – I’m going to have great fun coming up with cocktail combinations with this one! Some may even get into a cake planned.
I remember when Go Ahead bars came out, they were all the range with students. I hadn’t had them for some time and thought they would be great for in-between synchro sessions. I’m a fan of the apple flavour but the Forest Fruits was definitely the winner with the kids – They didn’t last long! Billed as low in saturated fats, they do appeal but these are VERY sweet.
We are also trialling Fresha bags which are said to prolong the life of your fruit & veg in the fridge – Not much tends to last longer enough to spoil in this house, but I will let you know how we get on next month
We still have one jar of our famous cherries in kirsch still to demolish – Our Cherry & Pineapple Crunch went down so well though, we might make it again this week
So what has been going on in your kitchen? Have you any plans for the month ahead. Let me know – I’d love to get excited along with you – It will break up the tedium of decorating!
