In My Kitchen - March 2018
Above is some goodies from the Coburg Farmers Market. Apples and peaches are signs that summer fruit is giving way to autumn fruit. We sliced up the raspberry and coconut cake and put it in the freezer for school lunches. I loved the sourdough bread (as life is conspiring against my bread baking energy) and we were very impressed with the crumpets made in Brunswick by Holy Crumpet, which I had not seen before.
The Good Seed. It was refreshing in the barely sweetened way that Kombucha is. I found out that I have been stunningly ignorant of kefir which I always thought was milk based. This fermented fizzy water drink was really lovely.
cheeseymite scones when we went on a picnic with some friends at Rippon Lee. It was great to visit one of Melbourne's grand homesteads as it has been quite some time. It was also lovely to see our friends and their kids who have grown so much and were very amusing, especially the two year old with his pants constantly threatening to fall down.
chocolate sauce. Pancakes were a low priority and I ended up taking a few banana oat pancakes out of the freezer to top with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Must do better next year!
Lorraine's raving about radiatore pasta and could not resist buying a packet. She said it was great to hold the sauce. Sylvia and I had fun with clicking the stripey sides together like lego building blocks.
Wendy's bake of long ago. i had grand plans of baking eggplant and pumpkin to cook into a tomato sauce and then baking it together with gnocchi under a layer of mozzarella. Except my oven let me down. I really should have done it all on stovetop except roast vegies are so good.
The eggplant and pumpkin almost made it before the oven gave up. The mozzarella was browned under the grill. And there wasn't enough gnocchi for all the sauce so we ended up cooking more pasta to serve it which made it go even further than I expected. Luckily I really loved eating it. But you can see why I have been baking less lately, given my dodgy oven. I'll write a bit more about frying pizza soon (see Fried pizza post).
I am sending this post to Sherry of Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen event, that was started by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, If you would like to join in, send your post to Sherry by 10th of the month. Or just head over to her blog to peek into more kitchens.
