November 2018 did not go to plan. We went away motor racing and I fell behind in my blogging. Instead of being a month ahead, I am a day ahead! Not a space I like to be in. But, life comes first and hopefully in December I will catch up.
Canister For Rooibos
This is the last one I need. Rooibos translates to red bush and I thought it would be fitting to get a red canister. This was bought the first week of November 2018, the day before the Christmas sale started. Lucky for me they passed on the discount.
Herbs For Fish And Pasta Alla Norma
Dave found a lovely small shop in Siracusa selling herbs, spices and teas and I bought a bag of fresh herbs for my pasta alla norma. The following day at the market in Ortigia Dave bought fresh herbs to use with fish. We had also purchased fresh fish for dinner that night and the herbs were perfect. Since then we have used them with our local seafood and we have given a packet away to a friend of ours who brings us fish.
This was our second visit to Sicily and this time I made sure to come back with a bottle of Marsala. I used it for zabaglione, and we have used it to make a mushroom sauce, and with chicken dishes.
November 2018 #FOMO Box
The November Food On Monthly Order box contained items that have mostly been put away. The marinated mushrooms were scrummy and I am going to try to replicate them next month. The digestive biscuits were very crumbly and Dave snacked on them when he got home from gym. The knife has been used and is so pretty with a cheese board.
Stoneware Dish For Dips
This stoneware dish was on sale and I think will come in great use in my kitchen. So far I have used it for my smokey red pepper dip and butter bean hummus. In December I plan on using it to make baked camembert.
