Firstly I must show off our first and finest strawberry that Sylvia ate before they were either eaten by birds or defeated by my lack of watering. Now that there is more sunshine and less rain, I need to get into better gardening habits.
Half Moon Cafe in Coburg. They are made with broad beans and lots of herbs. When fresh they are crispy outside and soft and green inside. After a day in the fridge, they firm up but still taste exceedingly good.
overnight sourdough bread a couple of weeks back and found I was out of my regular white flour. I looked for what flours were about the kitchen and used 1/4 white flour, 1/4 wholmeal flour and 1/2 spelt flour. The bread was great with far more depth of flavour, albeit a little less lift.
Coburg Farmers Market. The cruffin was for E though Sylvia and I had to taste the strange hybrid of a croissant and muffin. The garlic scapes ended up in nachos. The oranges were quartered and put into Sylvia's lunchbox. The kale went into this salad. And I enjoyed the new vegan creamy macadamia and pear chocolate from Cocoa Rhapsody.
Vegan Mofo. Above are some gingerbread men from Isa's Vegan Holidays Cookbook. I didn't like them quite as much as my regular gingerbread but it was pretty good. And we had fun decorating the gingerbread men. Sylvia did the skeleton and I did the guy in the tie.
I am sending this post to the In My Kitchen event, that invites bloggers to share a peek into their kitchen. Started by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, it is currently hosted by Lizzy of Bizzy Lizzy's Good Things. If you would like to join in, send your post to Lizzy by 10 November . Or just head over to her blog to check out some fascinating kitchens.
