August 2015 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I am way ahead of myself in preparing my In My Kitchen August 2015 post to share with Celia from Fig Jam And Lime Cordial to showcase what is new this month. But saying that, I am also way behind in getting the new things from the camera onto the blog :).  Since we are travelling overseas again next month, I want to make sure all my August posts are done before the end of July. In my kitchen is a copy of the Good Housekeeping magazine. I will take this with me to gym to read while I train on the elliptical machine. I picked this copy up at the TuberTek event I attended.

We were also sent home with 4 potatoes, some duck fat, olive oil and salt.

I received a hamper at the SunGold KiwiFruit event that consisted of 2 chopping mats that I have taken to work, a kiwi fruit spoon, some kiwi fruit and a notebook.

My team won a blending competition and our prize was a bottle of wine and a decanter each. We have enjoyed the bottle of wine, and I have put the decanter onto our dining room table in the new house to use next time we have guests.

  1. How exciting to be doing another trip overseas Tandy and always so many lovely things in your kitchen.
    Kenya proving to be very interesting. Will put a post together when I am home.

  2. Tandy, I bet you made some tasty “taters” with that duck fat! Love your kiwi stash, too, although I’ve never seen a kiwi spoon before. Clever gadget. Your new carafe is stunning — the stopper is so unique — congrats on your win! Safe travels, xo.

  3. Hi Tandy, I always enjoy the what’s new in my kitchen posts, looks like you have some really great new items, love the decanter.

  4. Ugh, I wish I liked the elliptical machine more! But I like your idea of bringing Good Housekeeping magazine with you! I should try that instead of watching the t.v.’s, there’s nothing good on anyhow. Love that kiwi spoon, I need to look into getting one, we are big kiwi fans here and I’ve read that they are naturally pesticide free as Kiwi farmers don’t feel the need to spray, so buying organic isn’t necessary as they should be naturally so! Yay for the Kiwi, so tasty.

    1. Our old gym had a TV on each machine and I would watch the news or the sport. The new gym we go to has older machines and it can get quite boring. Interesting fact about the kiwi farmers Laura 🙂

  5. I’ve never tried duck fat although I did see pig fat served as breakfast spread at a hotel we were staying at the other week. i tried it for curiousity then spat it straight out! Very unappealing cold! -Cate from IMK

  6. Congrats on winning! Love the decanter, looks beautiful. We have a kiwi fruit spoon as well and it does work. It’s great for packing in the kids’ lunch boxes. I myself read books on the kindle app on my iPad at the gym, magazines are saved for what little leisure time I can squeeze in at home!

  7. duck fat! how wonderful. and i love that kiwifruit cutter. what a cute gadget – i can’t resist gadgets as my drawers testify:) yes jolly weird to give you potatoes. that wine decanter is rather spesh – as they say around here. lots of lovelies in your kitchen this month tandy.
