Did you miss my April post? I thought I had done it, and that the post had disappeared. I woke up on the 1st of May 2019 expecting the in my kitchen post to publish. And when it didn’t I went to take a look, and there was nothing there! This is the first time in forever that I have skipped a month. And I don’t think anyone else but me noticed. Had we been at home I could have quickly done something about it. But as we were in France I just had to let it go. May was an amazingly busy month for me. We got back from overseas on the 5th and then had a 4 day work week. The penultimate week of the month we went racing in Port Elizabeth. And the week after that I was in Johannesburg for work.
April 2019 FOMO Box
In this box we got some coffee beans and quinoa which are always welcome. The maple syrup will most definitely be used as well as the stock powder. The Darling toffees did not last long as Dave’s sweet tooth saw to them within a week.
I am a little obsessed with white anchovies and we always buy them at the fresh produce markets in Europe. We decided to bring some home with us, and these anchois were really good. I took extra special care when packing them and wish I had brought more than just one as they did not last that long.
Chocolate Fondant Biscuits
Bev and I bought so many types of biscuits while we were in France. We both liked the ones with the chocolate topping and I found some sugar free ones to bring home. Dave has taken a liking to them as well and I am getting about 1 for the 3 he sneaks in.
May 2019 FOMO Box
The May 2019 FOMO box contained olive oil which of course I can never have enough of. The vegetable peeler has gone into our overseas bag as we had a really shoddy one on the barge. The savoury seasoning is like aromat and not something I would usually buy. But it is open and will be used for braai salt.
May 2019 New Chocolates
Bev and I always look for new flavours of chocolates to try when we are away. I loved the pamplemouse rose and it is already available in South Africa. The figue was not as intense as it could have been and the one I brought home was a gift for a friend who loves Lindt chocolate and figs. My favourite was the citron gingembre 🙂
