February 2018 Showcasing In My Kitchen

Was February 2018 the month of love for you? Our month started off in England and we got back to South Africa on the 12th. I think Valentines Day snuck up on Dave and this is the first year since 2001 that we did not go out for a meal. Or make something special at home. February 2018 ended with a trip to Welkom for the motor racing.

February 2018 #FOMO Box

The February 2018 box included a few sweet treats which Dave will enjoy. We devoured the pistachios with our evening whisky and I will try the gin the next time James comes over for a drink. I have left the egg separator in the kitchen to see if I make use of it. The last one I had broke over 10 years ago and I have never bothered to replace it.

Flavour Powder

I have used the blueberry flavour powder to make meringues. I felt all cheffy when I used it and cannot wait to share with you what I have done with the liquorice powder.

Hibiscus Flowers

I bought these hibiscus flowers in France last year. They are amazing to use in desserts and I shall start being more adventurous with them.

Kitchen Caddy

My plan is to start growing herbs on my windowsill in the scullery. To that end I needed to clear the ‘stuff’ off of it. I have not completely succeeded but I have managed to fit this kitchen caddy onto the worktop, between the sink and the wall.

Muffin Tin

I bought a new muffin tin so that I could make my Pasteis De Natas. Once again I have chosen to stick with the Paul Hollywood endorsed tins even though they scratch very easily. I am hoping that the investment will be worth it and that they will last.
