In My Kitchen September 2015

Tomorrow I leave for Scotland but before I can even think about packing later on today, I am sharing what is new and exciting in my kitchen with all of you, and Celia from Fig Jam And Lime Cordial. I was sent Canderel with sucralose so that I could make a Coconut Banana Loaf. I will make good use of what is left of this product as I have a few cakes to make that will need frosting.

They also sent me a set of measuring cups that are sturdy and have lovely handles. These have been put into the drawer for every day use, replacing the ones I bought about a year ago. In my new kitchen I am going to have to sort out all of these things into one drawer.

When we were at The Restaurant At Gabriëlskloof I bought some of their olive oil. It is fantastic and I will buy the 2l one next time we visit.

I was very lucky to be a guest of Good Housekeeping at their annual Celebrity Bake Stars Event. I was sent home with a huge goody bag full of edible delights. Some of them I have kept but the biscuits went to my 95 year old Mother In Law as a treat.

There were also a lot of items for the kitchen and I love the whisk! Some of the items I have already and don’t need doubles, so these have been gifted to my stepson, James.

You might recall I spoke about the Tupperware egg separator? Well, imagine my surprise when I was sent home with a huge bag of Tupperware from the same event, that included one. I have no need for more Tupperware – this is the plus side of having started a kitchen over 20 years ago, James and Carli have more use and a newer kitchen and so I have ‘swapped’ my goody bay for all the kitchen items that they have borrowed from me and not yet returned.

Together with The Ultimate Snowflake Collection recipe book, I was sent three of Snowflake’s Pre Mixes. These too were sent to James as I have run out of pantry space! This is the one shortfall of having such a small kitchen.

Disclosure: I was not asked by anyone who gave me gifts to blog about them. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

Dave and I are overseas in Scotland from the 3rd. I will be back in my office on the 16th of September and I will start replying to comments then. I won’t be able to read any blogs while we are away so please forgive my lack of visiting back. To follow along with us, click here.
