You have already clicked through, so you might as well satisfy your curiosity now that you are here!
With a blink of an eye, last month became this month and I honestly don’t know where time goes!
I surely would love to know…YOU?
Thank you Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for your In My Kitchen monthly series that allows me to keep track of time and love being invited into other people’s kitchens worldwide and having fun!
This month was exceptionally busy as Chef Georgio and I hosted our Moroccan Tagine Party and what a GREAT night!
I “sense” by know, you know I love to cook and bake!
Some of the dishes on the night included the featured photo of Moroccan Tajine Chicken with preserved lemons and olive, Stuffed Dates with honey, cinnamon and walnut cream, Manaeesh Flatbreads with Za’atar and a beautifully vibrant Eggplant Stew!
I am “traditionally” a coffee drinker and am spoiled every morning as Chef Georgio aka Barista Georgio makes my coffee and delivers it to my computer!
When I saw this absolutely adorable tea pot and cake stand at the dollar discount store near me, they just HAD to make their way In My Kitchen this month!
As part if my International Food Challenge – InterAustralia Cuisine, I did a twist on the Aussie damper bread creating Joanna’s Pesto Sundried Tomato Aussie Damper Scrolls.
And then there’s the gadgets!
I have the curiosity of a five year old and remember vividly asking (probably exhausting) my mum when I was little, “What’s this?” “What’s that?”
My unending barrage of questions was probably more than any parent could handle, so now I understand why the Encyclopedia Britannica (sadly no longer made or will be sold) was one of my many “intellectually stimulating friends!”
I had never seen an Onion Saver and wondered if it worked!
Needless to say it came home with me from the shops and made it In My Kitchen today!
I swear I think my friends search high and low for all unusual, interesting and quirky things to bring me to try!
You should see the “smiling cheshire cat” look on their face when they present a gadget to me; especially one I had never heard of or seen!
How unusual and it definitely has my curiosity; look forward to what I create!
While still in the dollar discount store this Ice Cream Genie and ice cream ceramic dishes were part of the Clearance aka further on sale rack!
I S-Q-U-E-A-L-E-D when I saw this Ice Cream Genie and put it to the side of my face as if I was being filmed for a tv commercial and started with:
“Want ice cream in three minutes?”
Well, you too can do!
Mums, Dads, Kids….ALL you have to do is shake and in three minutes you can have fresh ice cream to make and enjoy anywhere….spoon included!”
I know, HOW old am I?
The staff at the local store know me and know my blog, like me, is all about fun!
The salesgirl said once she heard my commercial pitch, she wanted to buy one too!
I thought my words were only being played in my head on the day; I must not have had my word filter on that day! lol
Even my imaginary friend Count Dracula would love this soup In My Kitchen!
