|limes in my kitchen
Our friend with the lime tree handed over some more of his bounty. Thanks Andrew! I use them all the time - over fish or chicken or salads or just to clean my wooden chopping boards.
|love Enid Blyton
I adored Enid Blyton's books when I was a child. I really wanted to be one of the Famous Five so desperately. I even planned to climb out my bedroom window and meet up with a friend at midnight! But I fell asleep before that could happen. She might still be waiting... How could I possibly not buy the book then? The recipes look simple, so I will give it a go and report back in the New Year.
|beautiful ceramic plate by Starr, a local artist
I just now took this photo, so the light isn't great. We had a big storm this morning and it has stayed grey all day. Weird Spring weather! Starr creates beautiful paintings, and has now expanded her repertoire into ceramics. Mm, I may have to give Mr P. a hint for Xmas gifts.
This is fabulous and just in time for Summer. It fits into the freezer door, and is shaped to make scooping easier. I can't wait to make some ice-cream and try it out. (There's actually a recipe coming up soon.)
|soy sauce (?) hopefully
I visited the local Japanese grocery store a few weeks ago, and ended up with this little beauty - all in Japanese, so I'm really praying it is soy sauce!
|delicious fudge from our friend Marisia
Marisia makes wonderful, creamy fudge. She is a dynamo with a hubby and kids, and a hairdressing business, and the fudge business and a coffee truck... well, I am pooped just listing it all. She can be found at lots of Brisbane markets. Check out her Facebook page, and you will see her marvellous coffee van Effie, the gorgeous Ford.
|well, these could be anything:=)
The tiny biscuits on the left were chocolate, I think - not sweet at all. The ones on the right were curry-flavoured rice crackers, most likely. They are kin to the 'soft salad' crackers we usually buy, which are the most delicious and ever so slightly fishy rice crackers of large dimension. Sounds like something out of The Princess Bride, doesn't it?
|gotta love a green Kit-Kat
These were very green and a wee bit bitter, due to the matcha flavouring. Not sure I would choose to have these again, but they were interesting. I really want to go to Japan, to the Kit-Kat museum, and check it out. I need to try those seasonal flavours.
|my home-made mustard
Mr P. is a huge mustard fan, so I have to make a big batch a couple of times a year. It's always a bit different, depending on the honey I use, and the various herbs and tomatoes.
Just to let you know re. next month's IMK: it will be IMK Lite! I am going to take a month off over Xmas/New Year but I will put up the link so you guys can add your post. I will drop by to check it out, but will leave commenting etc. till after my summer hiatus:=)
Thanks so much everyone for joining in for this last IMK post of 2017. It has been wonderful being your host, and I really hope to see you all again next year. Merry merry Christmas to you all!
