In My Kitchen - February 2019
The January holidays are over! School's back! Work's back! No more sleeping in and swimming. January was both busy and relaxing. We were either out all day and exhausted or sitting around at home doing nothing but watching Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events tv series on Netflix. Sylvia enjoyed some cooking over the holidays and we have eaten lots of easy summer meals like the hummus platters above. I am just back to work after 5 weeks off work and still getting my head around being in the office. And getting back to riding to work again which was not fun when I got a puncture on my second day on my bike.
Sydney with a small amount of souvenirs. A tea towel and fridge magnet from Manly.
pizza and flatbreads. The most amazing pizza I made was pretty simple with some leftover mac and cheese on a tomato sauce with some cheese on top. Mmmm crispy crunchy carb on carb comfort!
Jolly Good Food: a cookbook inspired by the stories of Enid Blyton. So over the holidays she made some recipes from it. Above is the Perfect Porridge with blueberries and cream. Not pictured is the tropical smoothie.
We Bare Bears over summer. Her favourite bear is Ice Bear who likes to hang out in his fridge knitting and watching tv. When his brothers have a drink he has a glass of ice. So here is Sylvia's Ice Bear hanging out in our very crowded fridge with his cup of ice.
Small Numbers, a small batch bakery. The baking was amazing. I tried the peanut butter and chocolate chunk biscuits and swooned. I was so tempted by the miso caramel shortbread but went for the Scandanavian style cinnamon rolls. They smelled so so so good and tasted every bit as good. Soft and aromatic and full of spice. I hope to see them again at the farmers market.
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.
