March 2023 went by in a flash! We enjoyed two lots of local motor racing, and both the Formula 1 and MotoGP seasons started this month. Friends of ours from Knysna came to stay for 3 nights, and we enjoyed good food, good wine, and great company. I also went on a mission to find sandals for overseas. Something I should have done before the winter clothes hit the shelves in February. That always boggles my mind how we can even try on stuff meant for colder weather during our heatwave month.
Recipes From My Kitchen In March 2023
I was on an Italian mission in preparation for our trip to Italy next month. I baked sourdough ciabatta breadsticks, made salsa di pomodoro which resulted in a pork neck ragu. And that led to agnolotti ripieni di ragù. Diverting away from Italy we had pressed pork belly when entertaining, as well as a yoghurt bundt cake for dessert. Toasted seeds were made for Dave’s workday lunches. And I had some chai as we had unseasonably cold and wet weather this month.
One New Thing In My Kitchen
My tableware butter dish is not practical for the fridge as it has a handle on top of a domed lid which means nothing can go on top of it. And as it is quite high, it does not fit in the small shelf of the fridge. I also have a butter crock, but that needs to have the water changed every day. And I am not good at remembering to do so. When I saw this butter container I thought it would be perfect. It has a flat lid meaning something can be placed on top of it. And it is shallow enough to fit on the small shelf. I thought the butter spreader would be an added bonus but it is not brilliant. However, it looks fancy enough for the table.
This is my April submission to the #IMK series hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens.
