June 2022 Showcasing In My Kitchen

On the 1st of June 2022, Dave and I headed for the UK. The first part of our holiday was spent with friends in London. During that time I did a little bit of shopping (as one does), and we caught up with friends from Zimbabwe, and with my Aunt from Johannesburg. Funny that we had to cross the equator to see them. We ate out, met new people and saw family. From there we went to the Cotswolds to do some exploring, and after that we headed for Abingdon. Our time there was all around family and it was truly amazing. We came home to storms, warm days and cold nights. Not a typical winter at all as we have not had any snow!

Savoury creations in my kitchen

I shared a recipe for beef cheek ragu which is perfect for winter. Beetroot pasta was made several times until I perfected the recipe. Then there was minestrone served with mozzarella and sun dried tomato bread.

On the sweet side

After making the chocolate buttermilk cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting, I made lemon cream cheese frosting. This was the perfect topping for the carrot cake cupcakes that I baked.

One new thing in my kitchen in June 2022

I am a sucker for trying new coffees and the Limited Creations from L’Or caught my eye as the box was so colourful. The coffee was great which was an added bonus.

  1. How lovely to hear you have been to the Cotswolds. Lee has lived in the Cotswolds many years ago. She took me down memory lane and her family still lives there. I just love the Cotswolds with their beautiful stone colour houses. Thank you for sharing your memory of your trip!

  2. Good to hear that your long trip went well. At least you did not report any airline betrayals (cancelled flights, long-lost luggage, other mess-ups) and you seem to have stayed healthy. It’s great that you were able to visit with family so far away.

    1. Mae, we were truly blessed to see family, and stay healthy. And we had none of the airline woes people are experiencing, which really helped make it a smooth visit 🙂

  3. Tandy, Many of our overseas vacations are spent visiting relatives too. Glad you had a wonderful time. it’s funny that you are in winter when it’s in the 90’s and hot and humid here. Your Minestrone soup with sun-dried tomatoes sounds wonderful.

    1. It is odd that we are so cold here when a lot of our family are celebrating summer. But it makes travelling in winter (for us) a pleasure 🙂

  4. that’s great that you had a troublefree visit tandy. friends of ours are still stuck in bali as qantas has flight problems… thanks for joining in IMK. always appreciated! take care xx
