Showcasing August 2016

Usually at this time of the year I have plenty to show off in my kitchen. But, August 2016 is totally different. I did not receive any birthday gifts this year that are for my kitchen. I usually get a cheque from Dave’s mum for my present and when it arrives I shall put it towards a new food processor.

August 2016 FOMO Box

My box arrived and I was quite surprised to find 2 smoked chilli sauces in it. The bottle of red wine is sure to go down well. And I know I will make the most of the truffle honey. Dave and I were talking about making a paella a day before my box arrived so the rice was quite timeous.

New Notelets

I popped in to a friend to drop something off with her and ended up staying for a cup of coffee. Next to her very impressive coffee maker were these notelets. I asked her where she got them and she gave them to me! I just love using them when reviewing recipe books and for making notes on recipes I am testing.

Baleia Wines have bottled their maiden Syrah Rosé 2016. I was sent a bottle, together with some olive oil to celebrate Women’s Month. The formal launch will be this month.

Dave and I carried the dishwasher from the cottage to the house and it has been installed.

I could not resist buying this spiral bread stamp. I have not made sourdough bread in ages as I killed my starter. I have a tiny pinch of dried Cordelia and will make a new starter in summer. This bread stamp has a comfort grip handle and is tried, tested and loved by Paul Hollywood.

And as I ‘love’ Paul Hollywood I went and bought myself the plain edged pastry cutters as well. I have been using a glass for my scones over the years so this will make a huge change for me.

This is my contribution to this months’ In My Kitchen series hosted by Maureen.

Dave and I are overseas in Europe. We will be back at work on the 18th of September. 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. You can follow our trip by taking a look at our holiday blog.

  1. Wow Tandy – you have taught me a new word. ‘Timeous’. Thanks for adding that to my arsenal. Glad you’ve been able to move the dishwasher from the cottage. It’s all coming together.
