September 2016 flew by with me doing very little in my kitchen. Our month started with an amazing overseas trip, and ended with house guests. I loved every minute of being with them and look forward to their return next year. My friend Liz from Good Things has taken over the hosting of In My Kitchen and I wish her every success in gathering us all together.
Le Creuset Utensil Holder
My friends Dorothy and John gifted me this utensil holder for my birthday. It is the perfect dish as we still have no drawers in the kitchen and at least this way I can keep my most used utensils close to hand.
While we were away Yuppiechef delivered my FOMO box. The oil from the tahini leaked a bit but as I have used up all the one I made, it was most welcome. We have used the truffle mayonnaise with some angel fish that Dave braaid. And the honey has been added to our oats. Dave is enjoying the nougat and we enjoyed the fiery tomato and onion chutney with cheese platters we served while our visitors were with us. I have placed the paella spices next to my stove to use as an all inclusive spice while the drawers are being made.
A temporary work top
Dave cut out the template for the worktop and has taken it to Boland Timbers to be made up. The blackwood top is not ready and so in the meantime Dave has attached some melamine off cuts so we can use the counter space. And as you can see, it is well used.
World Atlas of Food
I was given a copy of World Atlas of Food to review and it is now waiting for the book shelf to be used for books, rather than to keep things away from the puppy better known as the monster. Scarlett eats everything she can get to!
