In my kitchen…
… is my first ever cake cover. Up until this point I’ve been using a glass bowl over plates of food to keep things fresh. But I recently found this one at an op shop for $5!
… are these beautiful artichokes. I’d never eaten artichoke before, but last week I steamed one up (with a bay leaf and a slice of lemon in the water) and served it up for a pre-dinner snack for J and I, while E was eating dinner. I made a dipping sauce, mayonnaise and balsamic vinegar, for the petals, and we dug in. It was wonderful!
Have you eaten or cooked artichoke?
… this glassware sits waiting for a completely unrelated to food or this blog project. But I’m excited about it, and I’m still on the look out for more.
… there’s a jar of herbs, picked from a friends garden while they are away celebrating their daughters wedding. We got an amazing haul from their garden, beetroot, silverbeet, sweet peas, broccoli and bok choy! So fresh!
… are these hand knitted (by my mum) dish cloths. We’ve had them for a while. I love them, they work as a scourer, when they get a bit manky we just chuck them in the washing machine.
… sits a jar of sauerkraut, still fermenting, getting slightly moldy (is that normal?). But I’m letting it sit there, we topped it up with salt water the other day (is that normal?), and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that eventually we’ll be able to eat it on kransky’s.
