March already? Gulp! And time for another IMK. Autumn is almost upon us (yay!); we've had a hot and humid summer though hardly any rain or storms or cyclones. So much for La Niña! As I sit looking out my (pythonless) study window, it is intensely blue and sunny, and hot. Winter ... please hurry.
I'm still trying to find my mojo this year; I'm finding it tough going, as many people are. I feel kinda flat much of the time, even though I still cook a lot, and write a bit, and eat too much. Oh dear, my waistline, friends, is just going berserk. Enough of that; please join us for another IMK, all you brilliant, global bloggers. You know the drill; we want to see what's been happening in your kitchen over the last month.
In My Kitchen:
|grilled veg. cooked up by Mr P. for dinner|
|a gorgeous little ceramic bowl by Starr, a local artist|
|various oils from a Victorian olive farm|
|finally! the Bacon Book is here|
Niamh is an Irish blogger (Eat Like A Girl), writer and traveller who started up a Kickstarter for this maybe two to three years ago. I actually pre-paid it eighteen months ago, but due to Covid etc, it has only just arrived on my doorstep. Mr P. kept saying it was a scam, and I would never get the book! But Yippee, here it is! And it's fabulous. You're going to be seeing some marvellous recipes from it, to be sure, to be sure ... Maple candied bacon, bacon ice cream and so on.
|local tracklements (what a wonderful word)|
|a pretty little bowl in Ink tones by Batch Ceramics|
Once upon a time, there was a young, blonde Aussie actress called Joy Smithers. She could be seen in local soapies, dramas etc. And then one day, she decided to forge a new path, and become a ceramicist. Hence she now has a ceramics business called Batch Ceramics. I love her work, and I've already bought a few of her pieces. (Painting by Catherine Reason Macauley showing in the background.)
L'il Dusty is a small, bronze figurine made by Dion Parker, a Gold Coast artist. I also have one of these in blue resin, and a couple of his other pieces. Oh, I've just noticed you can see my reflection in L'il Dusty's face :-)
