Showcasing August 2017
August 2017 got off to the perfect start. My kitchen was busy to start off with, and then Dave and I went away for a week for motor racing. I am sharing some new goodies with you, my lovely readers, and with Sherry, our host for In My Kitchen. If you would like to take part in the #IMK series please pop into her blog.
July 2017 FOMO
This contained a turmeric drink which is really palatable and something I will buy again. I added the activated granola to the next batch I made for Dave. The wine will be set aside for summer, together with the rose lemonade. The rest of the goodies have been added to my storage boxes for when I need them.
August 2017 FOMO Box
This box contained a bottle of Gin which will wait for summer together with the pink tonic. I had already purchased a container of the unsweetened cocoa drink which I think is OK, but not great. I am using it with the turmeric drink to add the sweetness it needs. The salt is one of the products I sell and the mustard is in the fridge ready to be tried.
As I want everything new for my second kitchen I bought a Kenwood blender. The price was reasonable and I am mostly happy with it. The plug is a round 2 pin Euro plug which is a pain as our standard ones here are flat. I have bought an adaptor for it. I am keeping it in the storage box and when Dave eventually gets around to building the drawers for the kitchen I will have him make a mould of the base of the box as it has slots for everything.
Joseph Joseph Wash And Drain Bowl
Given that we are recycling as much water as possible, I asked my mom for this Joseph Joseph Wash And Drain Bowl for my birthday. It fits perfectly into the sink and I am using it for rinsing off the dishes. It can also be used to carry dishes from the table to the scullery.
