In My Kitchen: July 2015
One local purchase is this new saucepan that is between my largest saucepan and my stockpot. I am often looking for a saucepan of this size. It is the same style as my other Baccarat saucepans that I have had for 13 years and are in pretty good nick, albeit less shiny than my new saucepan. I can't wait to use it.
National Celtic Festival. It was the usual tooth aching sweetness of tablet but I liked the slight flavour of Scotland's national soft drink, Iron Bru. E said he couldn't taste it but I could.
my own loaves as in the picture above. On a recently visit I was offered loose garlic cloves for a song so I took a handful. And Sylvia picked me the flowers.
pizza for dinner and apple rose tarts for dessert. I thinly sliced some roasted purple potatoes and baked them on one of the pizzas with some tomato sauce, and cheese. The potatoes were really crispy like chips and were amazing on the pizza.
Smith and Deli twice because I happened to be in Fitzroy. So expect a fuller write up in the not too distant future. On my first visit I purchased this chickpea, apricot and cumin. Actually I am not sure I got the name quite right as there is no name or ingredients on it. I guess this is what you expect when you purchase on the second day of business. It was nice with lots of Moroccan flavours but I had hoped for chunks of dried apricot and there were none. I also bought a block of Loving Earth's raw caramel chocolate and really loved it's creamy buttery flavours but it went before I could get my camera out.
BuzzFeed about making pancakes with nutella inside. Sylvia remembered it as kids will. We tried it a couple of weeks back with our favourite banana oat pancakes and Coco2 Hazelnut Spread (above). I thought the mixture might be too thick but it seemed fine. I tried it again this week with vegan pancakes when Sylvia had her cousin over for a sleepover. The batter was much thinner and harder to flip. I think they were the messiest pancakes I have ever made but so yummy.
I am sending this post to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for her In My Kitchen event. Head over to join in (by 10th of each month) and/or check out what is happening in other bloggers' kitchens.
