In My Kitchen April 2013

I am not sure where March raced away to! It is Easter, and today I am going to try and stay off line for the entire day – this could be quite a challenge. In the meantime, I have a few things from my kitchen to share with you!

in my kitchen ….

Are loaves of bread made from Cordelia. Celia sent me some sourdough starter in the post. The dodgy looking white powder did not garner a second look from customs and as our postal service is on strike in Johannesburg the envelope was not even franked. Funnily enough, despite the strike the envelope was at me within a week of being posted. Celia asked me to name my starter and I came up with the name using Celia’s own name and her blog name (Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for those of you who don’t know her). Cordelia is the daughter of Priscilla and to see more of her siblings, take a look here. For anyone who lives close to me: if you would like to try sourdough please let me know. I have enough starter to share!

is my new favourite toy! This egg topper has been on my wish list for some time now. My sister and I were shopping in Sandton City and she insisted I go into a shop there to take a look at the Kitchen Aid attachments, and while I was browsing I found this!

  3. Tandy, I didn’t realise you’d named the starter after me! I’m so touched, thank you! And thank you for taking to the sourdough baking with SO much enthusiasm – I hope it brings you years and years of joy. The egg topper sounds intriguing, and how great to see inside your fridge again – I’d missed it! 🙂 (Do you tidy up the fridge just for us? Because it’s always so neat!) xx

    1. Celia, I have to confess that my fridge always looks like that! I am a bit obsessive when it comes to things lining up and being in the right place 🙂

  5. Oh my gosh, I just had the thought the other day how interesting it would be to bare my soul and take a photo of my open fridge for my blog. It would not be so neat and tidy as yours — love it. 🙂

    1. Basically, you place the egg into an egg cup – narrow side up – and then place the egg topper on to the egg. The round knob lifts up and you gently drop it down, until it cracks the egg the whole way around. You then remove the top of the shell gently, save the egg and wash out the shell to use.

  13. That bread looks wonderful, Tandy. White powder in the post? Better not try sending that to America. 🙂 I see that you have lots of eggs in your fridge to try out your topper on. 🙂
