In My Kitchen… October 2013

I love viewing into others kitchen’s, don’t you?  If you want to have a look at some others, head on over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, where Celia has collated all the other In My Kitchen posts.

There’s not a lot happening in my kitchen at the moment, the focus has been in other areas, buying a new car, sorting out the washing after our trip away, and trying to take a breather after hitting the ground running, again!

In my kitchen…

… are a couple of baby gifts. These tiny booties have found a home, gifted to me from my mother-in-law, pinned to the pin board.  It’s like a constant reminder of what is to come (even though the growing belly is quite enough).  These stunning soft socks are from my mum, she bought them from an amazing shop in Melbourne.  I can’t wait to see them both in use. baby socks In my kitchen…

… is a small pile of posters to promote the Geelong Roller Derby’s next bout.  A fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, with 100% of profits going to the NBCF.  If you live in the area and are interested in coming to watch head to our Facebook page to find out where you can buy tickets.

EDIT: I should clarify… I’m not longer skating but I am still heavily involved in the league and hold a place at the Media and Marketing representative on the Executive Committee.
Booby bout In my kitchen…

…is this lovely prize I won from over at Foxs Lane.  It was so wonderful to arrive home from a week away to these lovely teas.  I can’t wait to share more with you about them. she tea In my kitchen…

… is a big pile of silverbeet and spinach that will turn into dinner later today.  Our plants just keep growing and it seems that the more we cut off, the more they thrive! spinach Don’t forget to have a look at some of the other kitchens here!

  1. I’m going to try that theory with my kale and see if it grows better.
    Those socks are absolutely adorable! Would love to see a bump shot :-) Maybe we should both share?

  2. Those teas look really neat. I have never seen that brand before. Congrats on the baby news by the way. Those little shoes are to cute.

  3. Clare, do those socks come in adult sizes? They look so warm and cozy (and my feet are cold.) What a lovely gift. I also like the graphics on the Roller Derby poster and she-tea labels, too. Very cool. Enjoy your greens, get some rest, and thanks for this month’s glimpse!

  4. Clare, it’s all happening so fast, isn’t it? But surely you don’t still have the roller derby helmet on at this stage? 😉 The teas look delish, and how wonderful to be eating all that greenery from your garden – silverbeet (we call it chard because everyone complains less when they eat it then) is just the bee’s knees. Have you ever tried growing the rainbow variety? It’s very pretty!

  5. I love all your fresh greens and they would be so good for you, especially while you’re pregnant. The gift from your mum is gorgeous! And how lovely to win a prize. I’m always overjoyed when a parcel arrives at the door xx

  6. Oh, those booties are adorable. Congratulations!
    My sister is just getting into roller derby though she hasn’t been officially ‘named’ yet…any ideas?

  7. Hi Clare, the silverbeet looks great and it’s true the more you cut the more they grow, unless the chickens take a liking too it and it can’t keep up.(it’s fenced off now)
    What’s your favourite way to use it?

  8. G’day Clare! Thank you for this month’s unique view!
    Loved the she-tea and the Booby Bout as is for a beyond wonderful charity cause too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  9. Those little spotty socks are too cute for words. I know what you mean about the garden – I was just out the back pciking yet more lettuce and thinking ‘why did I plant so much?!’. See you in Perth in a few weeks : )
