March 2018 Showcasing In My Kitchen

March 2018 heralded the start of the next phase of kitchen building. Dave is doing the work himself and my kitchen drawers are looking amazing. I shall share photographs once they are all done. I went away for a long weekend to spend time with my parents and sister. Kerry was visiting from Australia and I left Dave to his own devices.

Edible Flowers

I used these edible flowers to decorate my set custard. I will have to come up with a good recipe for them. Do you have any in mind?

March 2018 #FOMO Box

I can open a shop selling paprika! This is the umpteenth time we have received this in our FOMO boxes. We also got another form of harissa and I am still using the first one and haven’t touched the second one we were sent. I sell Oryx desert salt if anyone is interested in getting some. Dave and I tried the colissons as soon as I had taken the photographs and put the burger press straight to work. It makes huge patties but actually this is OK as they are all the same size.

Small Measuring Set

One of my suppliers sent a product to me that should have had 100mls in each container. Some were short filled and so I measured out the liquid using my small measuring container and my measuring jug. One of the ingredients was extremely corrosive, eating straight into the plastic. I have now discarded both and bought this new nesting set to replace the small container. I love it as it can measure 1ml!

Microwave Plate Warmers

When we were in the UK last year I saw my cousin using these microwave plate warmers. They were put onto my list of things to buy and I found them this trip at Lakeland in Newcastle. These plate warmers / trivets are super heavy so that was the sum total of the shopping that I did. They work amazingly well and we are using them nearly every night.

Tea Hamper

I was sent this amazing tea hamper from Celeste Hewett of  C H Communications. I made iced tea using the Apple, Vanilla And Cinnamon tea bags.

I am linking up this month with #IMK over on Sherry’s blog.
