In My Kitchen March 2015
In my kitchen my mum frequently drops off food and books. She brought some small plums from my brother's tree. Sylvia and I gobbled them up eagerly. They were great for taking out and about. My mum made the chocolate and date cake which disappeared even quicker. And I have joined a bookclub so my mum loaned me the first book, Richard Flanagan's The Narrow Road to the Deep North. It was beautifully written with uncomfortably vivid descriptions of World War II PoWs in Thailand but it was disconcerting how the narrative jumped around.
Asian Napa Cabbage Salad. I found it challenging to find the right cabbage because apparently we call it Wombok Cabbage in Australia. The cabbage I found was huge. I photographed it next to a glass and a regular sized carrot to give some sense of how huge it was. I am sure it was bigger than my head!
great retro glasses for $1 each.
chocolate bliss balls with the occasional blow out at the supermarket. Tim Tams have been tempting me with all sorts of novel flavours. These coconut Tim Tams are probably my favourite, though I loved the colour on the red velvet Tim Tams.
Celia's overnight sourdough bread.
A Vegan Smiles. I have used it twice on zucchini. The first time it made these lovely noodles that I tossed with avocado, pesto, chickpeas, tomatoes and lemon juice. It was a great healthy lunch. The second time the zucchini refused to go through and turned to mush - I think I had chopped it and that just didn't work. More experiments are needed.
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.
