March 2020 was meant to be a really busy month for us. We had social plans, 2 local and one away race meetings, and the normality of life to look forward to. First, our race in Port Elizabeth for the endurance series was cancelled. And then, we were put on a 21 day lock down. Today is day 6! This post was written a month ago as I am finally ahead of my writing so at least one thing has gone to plan this year.
Creations in my kitchen March 2020:
Maya chose the most beautiful fridge magnets as thank you gifts. I confess to swapping mine with someone else’s at the table. But that was because I really wanted the elephant.
Gin And Sorbet Cocktail
It was a really hot summer and we drank a fair bit of gin and tonics sitting in the pool. The one day was unbearable and so I made a gin and sorbet cocktail using my blueberry and lemon gin. A double tot was poured over blueberry sorbet and topped with pink tonic water. It made a bit of froth as you can see but it was really refreshing.
Le Creuset have a limited edition Star Wars collection. I really want the large cocotte and am working on Dave to get it for me. I bought Mark a trivet as it had to travel safely overseas. And for James and Carli, a small cocotte. I bought myself the Millennium Falcon trivet which is on our dining room table.
More Cold Tea Infusion
I am so enjoying these cold tea infusions. Each bag yields about 4 glasses of water and sometimes I amp up the flavour with ginger, limes or lemons. I have a few more flavour combinations in mind and a recipe concept or two. These will be added to my ‘take overseas list’ to make my water bottles more interesting.
This is my April 2020 submission to the #IMK series, hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens. Pop on over to her blog to take a peek.
