It has been a bit of a roller-coaster this year, with a death in the family, my story being published, and various bits and bobs of life. Apparently, the stars (and the cards) say there are changes coming, big changes - so we will see what happens in 2020. The twenties?! But but - that means flappers, and Prohibition and post-war shenanigans, and ... Nope, you silly, add on a hundred years! May the 2020s bring blessings for all of us.
So here for the last time in 2019 - In my kitchen:
|Christmas gin pudding and gin|
For another year, I have paid my pennies to get one of these delicious puddings. They actually make the gin by soaking the pudding in the liquid, so you can taste all the wonderful Christmas spices. Can't wait! Oh yes, and they use a different artist's artwork for the label each year. I really like this one. It's by Tim Summerton - Flame Trees.
I love to make a big batch of mustard for Mr P. every so often. Each time it is different, depending on the amount of basil, honey etc that I throw into the food processor. I think this is one of my best batches, but we will know for sure very soon, once it has matured.
Clients of Mr P.'s came back from Italy with this gift for him. Twenty-one tiny jars of Nutella in one huge glass jar! Oh my, it must have been hard to shove in a suitcase. And it weighs a ton. They must really like him :-)
|a Jamie Oliver santoku knife|
This is definitely not a plug for Jamie Oliver, but I bought this knife recently as a back-up for when Mr P. is already using our big knife. This one is cheap and cheerful, but not a bad item to have on my magnetic knife strip:-) The grip is comfortable, and the blade sharp (for now). Not a bad buy for $18!
