July 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I cannot believe I am typing the word July already! This being my birthday month is my favourite month of the year! Come and take a peek what I am showcasing in July 2013.

In My Kitchen July 2013

is some fresh turmeric. You do not understand how excited I was to see this. I found it two days before we left for overseas but I had to buy some and use it straight away. First I made some turmeric roasted cauliflower to see how this fresh product works. Well done to my local Pick ‘n Pay for finally stocking an ‘unusual’ ingredient.

is a packet of lime seasoning that was sent to be by Knorr. I am going to use it the next time a recipe calls for citric soda as that is the main ingredient.

is a bottle of balsamic vinegar that we bought while in Modena. We went into a shop and the choice of balsamic vinegar’s was huge. I did not know which was the best one to buy but I decided that I would look at the age first, and then the packaging as I needed to get the bottle safely home from Italy.

is a gnocchi board. I read an article on Bologna and one of the places that was recommended was a large store that has a great homeware section. The homeware section as not great, but I found this board and now I have to make gnocchi again!
