In My Kitchen: April 2020
Above is a particularly pleasing meal of ravioli. I heated a little oil in the saucepan, fried some red capsicum, peas and spring onions, then mixed in spinach, basil and grated cheese with some ravioli.
Kennedy Popcorn on the Cob. It was exciting for its novelty value. You can see a photo of the corn on the cob in my March In My Kitchen post. It came with a paper bag and instructions for cooking. The corn is dried on the cob and goes in a paper bag in the microwave and comes out with a mostly denuded corn cob in a bag of popcorn. I was so excited that I recommend you buy it online or at markets if you get the chance!
pizza on Fridays. The pizza above was pretty amazing with roasted pumpkin, fresh pineapple, mushroom and olive as well as the usual tomato sauce and cheese. I was surprised that Sylvia was willing to try some of her margherita pizza with finely chopped olives. She doesn't normally eat them but I wonder if she will come around as she love bitter flavours.
overnight sourdough hot cross bun recipe I made last year has been working a treat. I have made it with pumpkin in one batch and stewed apples in another and both are delicious. Sylvia is not so keen, even when we agreed to use dried cranberries and dried nectarine and I cut the dried fruit smaller. I liked the addition of orange zest to the second batch because in an idea world I would have dried peel in my hot cross buns, but did not have any on hand this year. It was a sign of a well stocked pantry that I could made two batches without needing to go out for supplies.
I plan to be back with this as well as more posts but am finding my time and energy for blogging is not great lately. I am not managing to blog so often but will continue at a slower pace for now.
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, I am grateful to Sherry for soldiering on despite all the upheaval as In My Kitchen is always a fun event. If you would like to join in, send your post to Sherry by 13th of the month. Or just head over to her blog and visit more kitchens.
