March 2012 Showcasing In My Kitchen

The lovely Celia, who blogs over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, has a monthly round up of what is in our kitchens – you can join in too by clicking the link to her blog and seeing how it is done. Here is my In My Kitchen March 2012 round up.

In my fridge in February was a packet of beetroot, left over from the cake I baked

In my fridge is a small packet of yeast – and look how cheap it was (we need to spend R7 to get US$1, R10 to get €1 and R8 to get AUS$1)

In my kitchen is this lovely gift box I got when we went to the opening of Liam Tomlin Food at Leopard’s Leap.

The box came with a recipe card for mushroom risotto but my friend Erica tells me my recipe is great, so I will think of another risotto to make with the ingredients.

In my kitchen is a beautiful prop from Cindy – she gave me this lovely gift, and I have used it already to serve David’s lunch in.

Also in my kitchen is this wonderful tea mug – I make myself a floral tea with ginger every afternoon, and this way I don’t have to worry about the flowers ending up being swallowed. This is another gift from Cindy and I think of her everyday when I sit down with my afternoon cuppa.

Wishing you all a fantastic March 🙂

  1. That is so awesome that you can get fresh yeast from PnP. We battle to get it, so we buy it directly from our local little bakery. Making bread with fresh yeast vs dried yeast has such a vast difference. The teacup is beautiful!

    1. I was told that you can just ask at the bakery counter and they will sell it to you! I am going to start playing around with it soon 🙂

    1. I used it for batter and it made a difference with that. I am going to try it with bread soon and I will let you know 🙂

  2. I LOVE that mug and spoon. And looking at your fridge, reminds me that I need to do go food shopping tomorrow lol. Too lazy to do it today. Wonderful post

  3. Am trying to work out the price of your yeast – was that nearly 4 rand so 40 euros? No, have just checked on a currency convertor and its 40c – phew, I was going to fly over with a packet of yeast for you! Love the tin mug and the cup for your tea, very nice indeed

    1. ha ha, I got the conversion the wrong way around! Thanks for pointing that out for me – I should not blog before coffee! I convert a lot of things in my head to € as I know how much we spend on things when we are travelling! However, you can still fly over 🙂

  4. I’m rather taken with that mug and spoon. It’s given me a very good idea for where to put my cooking-stirring-spoon that usually rests in a mucky mess on a dish next to the cooker. 😀

  5. Oh, I love working with fresh yeast, but it’s not that easy to get hold of nowadays. My mother always used it and taught me how to best use it. Love the cup and spoon, it is enamelled? Thank you for sharing your kitchen. May March bring many good things your way!

  6. Tandy, thanks for playing, I love seeing what’s in your kitchen! That risotto pack looked wonderful – I try to resist, but I’m such a sucker for all-in-one boxes, especially when they’re so beautifully presented. Your yeast is really cheap indeed (less than Aus 50c!), and Cindy is an absolute sweetheart, isn’t she? 🙂

  7. Hi Tandy-
    I enjoy your pictures of your very clean and organized refrigerator- mine is always filled with so much STUFF- that yours gives me a moment of pleasure to observe. 🙂
    Your cups are very pretty and all the nicer since they are gifts. Most of my favorite cups are gifts.
    I rarely buy them (or teapots) for myself because I would have too many to deal with.
    And your boxed set and food gifts are impressive- as well as the fresh yeast. Food challenges and keeps you busy when you receive ingredients that make you stretch out of your recipe cache!

  8. Tandy, You have the most tidy fridge and cupboards I have ever seen. They look like a a pic from a magazine shoot. Last time you wrote about your cupboards, it prompted me to have a big clean out – may take the same inspiration and see what is lurking about my in the back of my fridge 🙂

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