April 2015 is by far my best month of the first half of the year. This is the month that Dave and I travel overseas and this year we will be going back to France. But before we leave, here are a few things to share with you and Celia from Fig Jam And Lime Cordial. So, in my kitchen this month is a new notebook. The very lovely Lorraine sent it to me as a gift for Christmas. I am going to use it to write all my cookbook reviews in. At present I have an exam pad that I write the notes into, but this is much prettier.
In the same package was this amazing block of chocolate. I had to keep it away from Dave who is a chocoholic and cannot say no to another block (or three).
Dave and I both like thin mugs, but I like a bigger mug than he does. It has taken me years to find a mug that I like for my coffee and finally I found one! Hopefully this one will last longer than the previous one, which I left on the floor next to the couch and forgot about when I stood up!
I was sent a copy of Food For Your Brood to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I am always so grateful for these books as they are a treat for me and something I would not buy for myself at present, as all my spare cash it going to the finishes of our house.
Last but not least is a container of lime leaves. I looked everywhere in the spice section of my local stores for these and then stumbled across them with the Asian cooking ingredients. I was really happy, as I love the flavour they impart to my dishes.
