February 2016 signals Valentines Day, a wedding and a weekend at home alone while Dave goes racing. New in my kitchen this month are items I have been holding back on while I create recipes and review books. Thanks to Maureen who blogs over at Orgasmic Chef for gathering us together.
After our amazing lunch at Hartenberg with Zomato, I was sent home with a bottle of wine that will be enjoyed for sure on a hot summers day.
I also received a bottle of wine when I went to Jenny Morris’s book launch. If you know Jenny then you will realize that this bottle is her. The wine was good and went down a treat, slightly chilled, during the heat wave.
I bought myself this Oxo 4 cup measuring jug as I make such good use of my 2 cup one. You can see the levels from the top, which means you don’t have to bend down to see how much you have poured into the jug. I must confess that I have not used it yet, but my smaller one has faded so much it might need to be used just as a jug and not for measuring.
Yuppiechef have launched their own magazine which I received a few copies of as I ordered a lot of items from them in separate deliveries.
One of my orders in January was the FOMO box. We have made our way through the peanuts, corn and red wine already. The slow roasted tomatoes and mustard are open and being used and the rest of the items are waiting for me to get to them.
Celia sent an angel to watch over me. This beautiful book mark is not in my kitchen, but rather next to my bed, tucked in to which ever book I am currently reading. There are no words to say how touched I was by this thoughtful Christmas gift.
