Showcasing July 2017
July 2017 started off with promises of a much better month. For the first time in years I skipped a month of showcasing what was new in my kitchen. So, I am playing a little bit of catch up here.
All Gold Jam
All Gold have recently launched a lite version of their Connoisseurs jam. I don't usually ask for something to be sent to me, but could not resist trying the Strawberry Lite jam. As I opened the jar I could smell the strawberries. Always a good sign of a well made jam. Together with this flavour were loads more for me to try. A huge big thank you to All Gold for sending me this amazing selection. It includes their new Skweezi range which James is most impressed with.
A friend of mine was walking around Poco which is our equivalent of Ikea and she found some baking paper. As we had been discussing it she bought be a box. I love that it is already in sheets and it is proper non stick. I will pop in and see if they also do ones on rolls that I can cut to my own size requirements.
Dave and I installed the countertops which now means that the kitchen section of this part of the project is finished. It was quite a story as the original manufacturer has stopped doing bespoke woodwork. We had to find someone else to do the work and I am super impressed with the quality of what they did.
Part of the delay in having these installed was that they lost the template for the corner piece. Unlike most corners, this one is flat. Dave wanted the grain to run across the corner and it had to fit perfectly. As an apology for the time we had to wait they made us a bread board. This came with special oil and it looks stunning on my diningroom table.
June 2017 #FOMO Box
Dave has taken the coffee to work as it works perfectly in the coffee maker he has there. The sugar free berry jellies were most welcome as this is one sweet manufacturer I actually spend my money with. I drank the Strawberry Fields IPA when I had a kidney stone. It tasted more of beer than strawberry which was a good thing. The olive oil has been used and the salt is about to make an appearance in my kitchen as the one from France is nearly used up.
I am linking up with Sherry with new things in my kitchen for July 2017.
