When a month goes to plan then I am super happy. And my blog plan is always to be a month ahead of myself. So, I am typing this up on the 4th of September 2018. I won’t finish the post today, but at least I will have started. Dave and I spent the last two weeks of the month in Italy and on the 25th we head to East London for motor racing.
I had 6 egg cups already and went and bought another 2. These were used to serve the pea velouté. My guests poured the velouté over the pan-fried scallops. Knowing it would not be enough I placed the extra into a warmed tea-pot.
Eye Level Cupboard
Neither Dave nor I are fans are eye level cupboards. However, we needed one for the UPS system which works as a back up during power failures. We have 4 lights connected to this. The top cupboard houses the UPS and the bottom one contains my oils, salt and pepper grinders, as well as a few other every day use items. The are on a soft close hinge system and open upwards.
Scullery Completed Drawers
My scullery drawers have finally been completed. The two on the far right are for cleaning materials and the top one in the middle has all my towels, cleaning and drying cloths. The bottom one in the middle has all my storage containers. At present the two left hand ones are being used as pantry drawers. Eventually once the pantry is in this will change. The top one will be for dog food and we will have to wait and see what goes into the bottom drawer.
Drawer In Drawer
When I posted my IMK post last month, my mom asked to see the drawer in drawer system. I chose the one I love the most. In the top section are my cups and saucers, espresso mugs and egg cups, and my various plates for blogging. At the bottom is all the paraphernalia needed for hot drinks as well as a few bowls I have collected over the years.
FOMO Box September 2018
The September 2018 box celebrates braai month. This is the alternative name for Heritage Day which was on the 24th. I gave the braai salt and refill to Mark as I still have ours. The rest has been put away for use sometime this month.
