In My Kitchen... March Edition
Time for a new month, time for a new season, and time for another In My Kitchen Post!
This is such a fun way to catch up with some other Bloggy Buddies and find out what's happening in their kitchens around the Blogisphere and around the world.
Bought to us all as usual by Dearest Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, check out all the other IMK posts at her blog here:
In My Kitchen this month is....
some very interesting flavoured honey that I'm looking forward to playing around with
A spanking new toaster that can now have it's own Gluten Free side! We decided it was time to replace the old one when we caught littlej using a rubber band to secure the lever to a metal spoon she had tied underneath the toaster- right next to the wiring........ 'I told you it was broken!'
Another bumper crop of zuchhini.... so many zuchinni!
Also a great crop of tomatoes, and a just a sprinkling of beans.
Last year we had so many beans that I even put up an extra arch/trellis in anticipation of this years crop- but hardly a bean at all :(
A whole heap of processed tomatoes ready frozen for the lean winter months. I just find it easier to freeze than to bottle them, and less storage space too.
Packed full of my homegrown: onions, garlic, bay, thyme, and whatever else is on hand at the time. Perfect for pasta sauce, ragu, stews or braises- such a time saver!
A bowl full of compost scraps. The garden feeds us, we feed the garden... Win Win!
Another new cookbook! I enjoy cookbooks that focus on doing one cuisine well, explaining the culture as well as the cuisine is a real insight into the philosophy behind the food
Some awesome gluten free Beer, sent by the lovelies at O'Briens. How exciting indeed! I have to say though, that I've never been a big drinker, and gluten full beer was totally off my radar, but this is really nice and I've been doing some great recipes with it too- stay tuned :)
So my Dear Readers, do you prefer to bottle, can or freeze, and what's going on in Your kitchen this month?
