In My Kitchen: October 2016
We have had some good breakfasts lately. The one above is on Father's Day. We decided a fry-up would be the thing for E. It was overnight sourdough bread (inexpertly cut by Sylvia when I turned my back), chickpea scramble, veggie sausages, baked beans and sriracha. It was lovely. Since then Sylvia has been keen on beans and sausages for weekend breakfasts rather than pancakes.
coconut ice along. My mum made pizza, and lots of desserts including macarons, caramel tart and chocolate cake. I was so full after it. And we also had a birthday, just in case you noticed the candles on the cake and though it was an odd Father's Day custom in my family.
potato scones. Breakfast was a lot later but oh so yummy.
salad), pesto, a beeswax candle, caramel sauce (used in these chocolates), potato and rosemary sourdough bread, a jam tart, pretzel and Cocoa Rhapsody's fantastic salted lime chocolate. Happy days!
Toronto Sandwich which is made with a chickpea flour wrap and lots of salad fillings. It is so quick to put together that I really should make it more often.
strawberry chia jam has been eaten and then mixed into ice cream. The strawberry and rhubarb jam is for the school fete. One of the jars did not seal so I have had to give it a test run. I am glad to report it is really lovely.
Melbourne Show, I bought a Super Food Ideas magazine showbag. It has so many good things in it, including a copy of the magazine. Lately I have been very disciplined in not buying food magazines. I enjoyed flicking through the magazine but haven't had much more time for thinking about making any recipes. We really liked a Costo Rica clementine anti oxidant infusion drink by Bai and will look out for it in future. The Lindt chocolates are great too but have been saved while Sylvia eats through the Oreos from her showbag.
Macabella Choc Macadamia Spread (Crunch). It reminds me a lot of Nutella, which is not surprising as according to its ingredient list it has a lot of sugar and has whey powder. However it is different because it has crunchy nuts in it (like crunchy peanut butter). I really liked it on some home made fruit bread.
BeeKeep at the farmers market this morning. I have read about them and was curious. It will be good to use less clingfilm if they do work with bread though I rely on seeing how much the bread is risen through the clingfilm so I need to see how these work.
Next month (November) will be Vegan MoFo, a month when bloggers sign up to post often and vegan. I am on the verge of signing up. That means I have almost convinced myself to do it but am nervous about finding the time for frequent posting. It means that I am keeping some of my vegan posts for then.
Meanwhile we have a new host for the In My Kitchen event, that invites bloggers to share a peek into their kitchen. Maureen, who had taken over from Celia, has decided to pass the baton over to Lizzy of Bizzy Lizzy's Good Things. It is great that Lizzy has agreed to keep the event running and I wish her well. If you would like to join in, send your post to Lizzy by 10 October. Or just head over to her blog to check out all the posts. They are always fun.
