In my kitchen - May 2013
In my kitchen are reminders of my mum and dad who have headed off on holiday this week. Above are apples and lemons from my mum's trees. I am thinking about cooking the apples but still not sure what to do with them. I am glad to be able to use some of the lemons while my parents are away, particularly as our lemon tree is not being very productive right now.
The other badges are an ANZAC badge bought for ANZAC Day, an old Alice in Wonderland badge bought from the Potter Gallery and an old protest badge from the days of George Bush, John Howard, David Hicks and Guantanamo. I don't know how the Gitmo badge is still around and I wish I could find the Domestic Goddess badge that used to be blu-takked on the wall.
stewed rhubarb. The colour is so pretty. I liked it so much, when I finished it I bought stewed some of the last plums of the season.
E's birthday. They relate to an exhibition of masks by Aleks Danko. Apparently he wanted them to be coloured in with only black and red. Fortunately Sylvia loves red because it is so close to pink. Can you spot the house and the monkey she drew on her mask?
Playschool. I used to watch this tv show when I was a kid. It is amazing that it is still going. Noni, Lorraine, Benita and John are replaced by Justine, Karen and Alex. It still remains fairly true to my memories and I still want to do all the crafts that they do. Sylvia loves playing Snap with the Playschool cards. Often we play a game after dinner before she goes to bed.
Rustica Sourdough stall at the Fitzroy Market. It is a great new addition to the market but between markets they can be found at the Alexandra Parade end of Brunswick Street.
Cake Deco in the city before meeting my friend Jane at Gekkazan@GPO. We were late because Sylvia left her bag of little and tiny things in the shop and we had to go back for it. She is besotted with her balloons. They are just dolly-size.
I am sending this post to Celia for her In My Kitchen series. Go there and peek into other people's kitchens.
