It's July - my June birthday done, the Winter Solstice over, and we're heading into summer (meteorologically-speaking). We had a weekend away, we got home before any border closures and here we are! But we are back to mask-wearing as of last night. Sigh! And ... Breaking News ... now we're in lockdown as of 6 pm!!
So what do I have here In My Kitchen? Let's see ... There are lots of birthday gifts but I'll save some of them for the next IMK post. And I'll share a few with you now. P.S. I'm now using Follow.it as my email subs service, so I am really hoping you get my emails about new posts. Maybe check junk mail or Spam? Damn Blogger for their constant changes! :-(
In My Kitchen:
|EV olive oil from Kangaroo Island|
You know I can't resist another bottle of EVOO. This one is from Kangaroo Island, out in the middle of the Great Australian Bight, hanging off the edge of South Australia. Beautiful oil!
|birthday fridge magnet from a friend|
She knows me well! Love that birthday card. And how about Doug? If only he'd popped out of a cake naked (tee hee).
Mr P. bought me these kitchen shears/scissors which have a bottle opener as part of the handles. Handles? Is that what you call them?
|Tudor flouncy mugs by Miss B.|
Miss B. made me two beautiful flouncy mugs for my birthday. That's the balcony of our hotel room overlooking the Richmond River. What a wonderfully relaxing weekend it was, just before coming back into lockdown!
|a beautiful tea towel|
My sister gave me this lovely tea-towel. Fairy wrens are one of my fave birds! And such cheeky little devils, with the male having his harem of several lovely ladies.
|a Danish dough whisk|
I've seen several vloggers use these in baking, so I had to get one. Thanks Mr P. for another fab birthday gift! I'm going to make pizza next week so I'll try it out then.
|my curveball - avocado earrings!|
I got these from an Etsy seller called Sweet Complete in Tasmania. She makes the best stuff! I have two more pairs on the way - a honey pot with honey toast, and a burger with fries :-) So stinking cute, as Emmy the food vlogger says!
FYI, virtual friends, the usual reminder: IMK posts are about your kitchen (and kitchen garden) happenings over the past month. Dishes you've cooked, preserves you've made, herbs and veg in your garden, kitchen gadgets, and goings-on. You get the picture. And throw in a curveball! - whatever you fancy; no need to be kitchen-related. The link is open from the first to the thirteenth of the month. Let me know if you need help with adding your post, or if you would like it added manually by me after the 13th (if you're running late). Here's how to join in:
