September 2022 flew past in a whirlwind. We had plans every weekend of the month which is not the norm for us. Two lots of local motor racing, a weekend away and my parents came to visit. I met a friend for a morning of walking around the shops and we had brunch. And we enjoyed meals out at friends, and had friends over.
Lots more savoury than sweet
This month saw a lot more savoury recipes coming out of my kitchen. That does not mean I did not bake. But mostly it was quick easy bakes to satisfy the sweet tooth cravings. For condiments I made apple chutney, onion gravy and herby tartar sauce. Lunch time meals during the week were spiced cauliflower soup and for dinner a few nights we had calzone. I also whipped up a batch of yoghurt flatbreads to go with aloo gobi. Wanting to use my wild flowers, I made a violet syrup. I am still not sure what I am going to do with it so any ideas would be welcome. And we had super sized choc chip caramel cookies for many a tea time treat.
One new collection of items in my kitchen in September 2022
I was invited to attend the SA Pork event last year and came home with some amazing gifts. I have just got to reading the two cookbooks, Oink and 100 Choice Recipes With Pork. Dave loves the pink knife for cutting vegetables for crudités each evening. The sticky plum sauce is fantastic and perfect for stir fries. I have just finished the olive oil which was a welcome gift as oil was quite expensive earlier this year. I have subsequently found a local olive farm that sells oil to the public at a very reasonable price. The wine was drunk with friends and the chocolate gifted on as we don’t particularly like anything other than dark chocolate.
This is my October submission to the #IMK series hosted by Sherry. Each month bloggers around the world gather to share what is new in their kitchens.
