January 2023 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I would love to be able to tell you that January 2023 got off to a good start. But it did not! I had a bladder infection which knocked me to the floor. I cannot remember being in such constant pain, even when passing kidney stones. After three days of agony I volunteered to go to the Doctor. This is so not like me, and I even asked if I could take antibiotics. Thankfully the medication did what it was meant to, and the instant pain relief was most welcome. That, coupled with high humidity and hot temperatures, meant I did not enjoy the month as much as I should have.

What dishes made an appearing in January 2023

I did not get as much cooking and baking done as I would have liked. So, this month there are not that many recipes to share. I made crispy bao buns and was impressed with myself as they were so good. To combat the heat we had a tuna bowl, and other variations of this concoction. I made chutney chicken when the weather was cooler. Sweet treats were all kid friendly! Hannah came and spent a day with me and we made slime and used a lot of edible glitter while baking. I made peanut butter fudge and sour gummy sweets.

What was new in my kitchen

I burnt my silpat by placing it too close to the grill, which made me so cross with myself. I have bought a cheaper version of the baking mat, and it has been used several times for baking granola. Aussie readers may be familiar with Supoon. I have one teaspoon size Supoon and bought one for myself and one for a friend. They are the perfect tool for getting the last lot of jam out of the jar (and any other condiment of course). I also got a large Supoon for cooking and it is great for dishing up. As a bonus, they balance perfectly on the worktop without the spoon part touching anything. If you have never heard of them, check them out. They are based in Brisbane, and I bought mine from a local stockist.

  1. oh yes indeed. Dreamfarm is not far away from us. We have been there a few times. I actually have 3 small supoons and one big one. And i use them all when cooking quite often. THanks for joining in again this month. and what a month it has been already!! cheers

  2. Hope you are feeling back to normal. Your selection of recipes looks really good especially the fudge. Having a tool to get the jam out of the jar sounds like something I could use too!

  3. Sorry to hear that you have been so sick. Luckily there are still some infections that antibiotics can alleviate, and I guess the sooner you get onto these drugs, the better.

I’m taking notes on activities to do with children, I’ll be with my grandchildren in France in late April. Slime you say, how do I make that? I’m out of practice however I’ll do the research. Great thanks, hope February is a lot better for you.
