In My Kitchen, December 2018
Despite feeling quite overwhelmed, there are some very nice moments in the lead up to Christmas. Take for example the Coburg Night Markets that run for the four Fridays before Christmas. We love it for a food truck dinner, some socialising and Christmas shopping. Above is a photo I took after the first night market this weekend. We love our Sweet and Salty popcorn from Pop'd, the candles from Nook and Burrow, the angel tree decoration from remaki and I can't wait to try the smoke maple syrup from Smalt.
cheese ball can be successfully added to my cheese and parsley muffins instead of the grated cheese. I really loved that all the poppyseeds around the edge make an interesting texture as well as the cheeseball flavours really making the muffins taste great.
squeezy bottle pancakes and decided to make the mixture herself. We amused ourselves making fried egg pancakes which looked quite real while cooking, though a bit less so once made.
gudetama. This was much harder than a fried egg but gave us lots of laughs.
banana and coconut cake with minimal supervision and was very proud of herself. Now she is very keen to bake alone. This sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
Below are some oat cookies she made one morning and woke me at 7am to give me a taste of the cookie dough after the cookies had gone into the oven. They were lovely. I only helped with working out when to take them out. (I have learnt a thing or two about dealing with my temperamental oven though sometimes still get caught out myself).
choc chip condensed milk cookies while I was out and added wholemeal plain flour rather than white self raising. They didn't look great but actually tasted good still. She is also becoming quite good at baking pizza and cooking gnocchi from a packet. So she had some friends around recently and they made pizza for lunch together.
bread the dough is rising so much faster than in winter! When it rises this high it sticks to the bowl cap but at least it is warm enough to dry it quickly after washing.
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 13th of the month. Or just head over to her blog to peek into more kitchens.
