So much happened in our lives in October 2016. The most exciting thing was Dave driving me around the racetrack in Port Elizabeth in his Lotus Elise. I am a speed freak and it was amazing! This month I am showcasing a few new things and linking up to Liz who hosts the In My Kitchen series.
Showcasing October 2016:
The monster dog can get into anything. She has the keenest sense of smell and ate the butter out of my Maxwell & Williams butter dish given to me by my friend Kim who lives in Perth. At the same time she broke the dish. My friend Gill kindly brought one back from the UK for me as a gift.
Faithful To Nature
I recently took part in an organic challenge with Faithful To Nature. Part of my voucher was spent on the ingredients I needed for the dish. I also bought a huge bucket of coconut oil as I love using it when cooking with mushrooms. I got cocoa nibs for our granola and coconut nectar to experiment with.
Salt and Pepper Grinders
Even though we have an open plan kitchen and dining room I don’t like having to move the salt and pepper grinders around all the time. As my dinner service is black and white I bought myself black Le Creuset Salt and Pepper Grinders. I have moved the red ones into the kitchen.
October 2016 FOMO Box
I have not managed to use one ingredient from my Yuppiechef FOMO box. I am going to swap the spatula as the colour does not go with my kitchen at all. I am looking forward to working with the coconut flour as this is an expensive ingredient I have not been able to justify purchasing.
When I made my berry and rose petal jam I left the contents in my red mini cocotte. Scarlett loved the jam so much but she also destroyed the container when she ate it. So, I bought myself a white one so we now have red, white and black.
My Canister Being Used
We are no further down the road with installing drawers so here is a photograph of my container being well used! I love having everything close to hand so I am sure it will be full all the time.
