January 2019 Showcasing In My Kitchen

Very little happened in my kitchen in January 2019. I started off the year not feeling 100%. We then went back to work, and my usual routine of making one recipe each day of the weekend begun. Sadly, the first weekend saw one failure so somehow I am going to have to catch that up. We also went away for motor racing so that was an entire weekend accounted for.

Gas And Electric Hob

These were installed ages ago, but the gas hob has yet to be connected. We need specialised installation for the gas lines. These will go to the hob, our fireplace and the outside BBQ. I am hoping this will be completed before winter.

Carving Board

From the cut outs of the hobs we decided to make carving boards. Sadly the one was shaped on the wrong side and so it cracked. But at least we have one now that will catch the drippings.

Carving BoardJanuary 2019 FOMO Box

The January 2019 FOMO box had a few repeats. The paella rice and seasoning being one of them. I decided to open the box from August 2016 (OMG) and will start using that. It is vacuum sealed so at least it has not gone off. The chilli oil will be gifted to James as he likes things hotter than Carli’s palate allows.

Olive Oil

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The label is blurred, but only because I had my camera on the wrong setting. The olive oil is pressed from olives that grow in a friends’ garden. She gave me the bottle as a gift and I used it up within a week it was so good.

Tea Cake Mould

I bought this tea cake mould to make sweetie pies. I am also using it to set ice cream in for photographs. And I am thinking about using the mould for panna cotta. But, I am still undecided.

  1. I love your kitchen Tandy! That wood carving board is fantastic. We desperately need to purchase a new stove and I can’t make up my mind on which one I want and will serve our family needs’ best! Ugh.

  2. Hi tandy
    Thanks for joining in this month. Those moulds look cute tho I always have trouble getting things out of them. Ah yes a good olive oil is a wondrous thing. Cheers sherry x

  3. Olive oil from a personal olive tree is really a neat idea! You are lucky.

    We live thousands of miles from the nearest olive oil producers, so it doesn’t happen to us, though we did have a Parisian friend with a house in Provence with a stand of olive trees,. She used to cook with the oil from the local cooperative, which included oil from her trees. Happy thoughts.

  4. Tandy, I think you’ll be in heaven when that gas hob gets hooked-up. Gas appliances are very rare hear, so we have induction (which I’m not fond of). I do so miss my old gas stove. Those tea cake molds look like fun.

  5. I’m just catching up on the last the IMK posts. Where does the month go? How clever you are to have the idea of using your wood scraps for another purpose. I must say that I do like your wooden benches. I just opened some peanut butter that expired in early 2018. August paella rice is well within the limits! Those moulds are great – perfect for ice cream. I think panna cotta would also look good but no cherries on top! ; )

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
