Update: This will be quick! I am not well, but have managed to put up a bit of an IMK post. This is as far as I got - Hello friends! Here we are, and here I am - back again and mostly in one piece (not so much anymore). What a long, hard haul it has been. Do NOT ever slip on a wet bathroom floor! Still seems unreal that such a tiny slip could cause so much bother.
In My Kitchen:
|more Tassie EV olive oil|
Yep, more EVOO. I bought this some time ago, and it's still in my pantry. Mr P. and I are trying to cut down our fat intake, so it may sit for a bit longer.
|some Greek goodies from The Greek Providore|
I bought these recently online from a Sydney retailer, thinking I had been a customer before - but no! These are from the Greek Providore while I had previously bought from the Grecian Purveyor. Not important of course, but just a bit funny. And everything is delicious.
|Japanese knife made by Yoshifumi Otsuka|
Otsuka-san is a third-generation blacksmith in Japan. The knife is made from Japanese iron sand and walnut. It's such a lovely piece, and feels wonderful in the hand.
|a cute little sake cup from Magnolia Mountain|
I have quite a few items from Magnolia Mountain, as you may have noticed in previous IMKs. But would anyone be able to resist this little darling? It's a sake cup but I will find other uses for it.
|the cutest little fridge magnets!|
Aren't these adorable? They are little budgies of course - budgerigars - native Aussie birds. Soooo cute. And looking so stinking cute (as YouTube vlogger EmmyMade would say) on my fridge. They are handpainted rocks, made in Queensland by Tammy of Awkward Art.
|you know how I love sprinkles :-)|
These were delicious - light and sweet and covered in sprinkles - with just a slight whiff of egg white, which can only be a good thing 'cos you know they're real.
|beautiful Meyer lemons|
One of our Tassie friends was passing through Brisbane on the weekend, and gifted us these golden globes from her garden. Mm, now what to make? Lemon curd, lemon cordial, limoncello ...
Hope to see you with an IMK post - everyone welcome! Check out my previous IMK posts for info as to how to join in. Sorry, I am too sick to do more right now :-( And I may not get to commenting on your posts for a while. Take care!

Oh goodness that’s awful. Fingers crossed that you heal fast.ReplyDelete
6 weeks and still not great but a bit better.Delete
Sorry to hear you are still not well Sherry - there's a Chinese proverb: getting sick comes as fast as a mountain wind, getting better comes as slow as unwinding silk from a cocoon. Those lemons look incredible and make me want to bake a lemon tart! Take care xxReplyDelete

Oh, I hope you feel better soon. I’ll be thinking of you!ReplyDelete
Lovely things this month (belying your condition) — the knife is stunning, and those lemons!

I'm glad to see you are improving, Sherry...even if it is a bit slower than expected. Hang in there! Also, that knife looks awesome!!ReplyDelete
well a fair way to go yet david but soon ...Delete
ARGH - not sure if my comment was chewed up by blogger - I have just written that there is so much beauty in your kitchen - glorious lemon colour, curve of the knife, colour of the bowl, the budgies that raise a smile and the labels. So sorry to hear you are still in pain. Hope you are finding joy and nourishment to heal your pain.ReplyDelete
thanks johanna. sorry about blogger and the comments. it drives me nuts that it so rarely works for people and there is zip i can do about it. still not well but painkillers help a wee bit. cheers S xDelete
Sp sorry to hear that your healing process is taking a long time and complicated. Yes, falls are scary. Happy to know you are making progress. Lovely things in the kitchen and those lemons just pop!
thanks judee. it has all been a bit of a shock to the system...Delete
Yay you for getting a post up but sorry to hear you're still feeling sore :( You will get there though, I know it! Love everything in this post but the dolmades and the sprinkly meringues look especially inviting! How lucky are you with the lemons? When life (or friends) give me lemons, I like to make lemon butter. It's so yummy on toast, in baking or my personal favourite, straight from the jar!ReplyDelete
thanks sammie. yes the dolmades are great!Delete
I am so sorry to hear about your fall Sherry, what a horrible and unexpected accident. I hope your healing accelerates. Meanwhile you have acquired some lovely new things for your kitchen, especially the birds and lemons, and that small bowl. Thank you for hosting even in your misfortune.ReplyDelete
thank you Liz. it has been a long and tough haul; can't wait to be better.Delete
So sorry you are not well! I hope the healing continues in a good trajectory. I have never seen Meyer lemons before and wonder how they differ to the bush lemons which I know you get in Australia :)ReplyDelete
a meyer lemon is a citron/mandarin hybrid from china. or that's what google says anyway! they are mild and have thin skin. these are organic from our friends's garden. so lucky.Delete
Sherry sorry to hear that you're not well. Is everything ok? I hope so! Well wishes to get better soon xxxReplyDelete
thanks. still the broken rib lorraine. i am sooooo tired of it! a friend said her daughter in law broke some ribs 3 months ago and is still not well!!Delete
Oh no! How long have the doctors said it will take to recover?Delete
the doctor didn't give me any clue as to how long it will take but i reckon it will be another month so prob 3 months all up. eek! poor pete is doing everything around the house.Delete
Looks amazing. I would love to try the aubergine caviar.ReplyDelete
thanks amalia. yes it was quite good but needed a bit more flavour.Delete
Oh so sorry to read that you've had a setback and aren't feeling well. :( Well, thank you for doing In My Kitchen. I'm sure that wasn't easy for you, but I do always enjoy them. I hope to be linking up tomorrow. Love that you are a lover of those tasty little jars of salts and goodies. And I want that knife! Hope you feel better soon!ReplyDelete
