I am joining the monthly series In My Kitchen hosted by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial starting October. Every month, I quietly browse through all the lovely produce and books about food & gardening, kitchen utensils and other knick knacks and food adventures from Celia and other food bloggers across the globe such as Bizzy Lizzy's Good Things, Life in Mud Sputtered Boots, The Clever Carrot, Lambs' Ears and Honey, Passion Fruit Garden, and so many more amazing bloggers. So after awhile admiring from a distance, I thought enough of the stalking and why not join in the fun! So here I am sharing my sanctuary that is my kitchen from this month on.
|Our calamansi plant is looking lovely as ever. Buds are sprouting and we're exciting to get some fruits in a few weeks.|
|Found these cute reusable doilies from IKEA. They're washable too!|
|My fave. Roma tomatoes growing from an unlikely place - in between the nooks and crannies (tiles) of our front porch.|
|We've doing a trial with these guys - supporting local farmers by buying direct. But I'm not sure if they're better than if I get them straight from the local markets.|
|This lovely number was something I picked up from the roadside during a council clean up week. A few brushes and cleaning and they're now holding my kitchen staples.|
|My latest recipe book acquisition. So many lovely recipes inside.|
|Finally picked up some Maggie Beer Sangiovese Verjuice from the weekend Masterchef Live event. Excited to use them with summer fruits for compotes and coulis, and.....|
|Also from the Masterchef Live weekend, supporting Austalian produced sea salt flakes! I'm imagining lots of dishes will be flavoured by these.|
|Another purchase from the Masterchef Live weekend - Caprino goats hard cheese from the Mornington Peninsula! Lots and lots of savoury and sweet dishes running through my head.|
I don't have a vegetable garden like Celia or a balcony garden like Mel, but would love to have one. And potted plants are my only option for now. I need to wear one of them green gloves I think. Maybe it'll help cover up my not-so-green thumb somehow.
