There wasn't a lot going on in my kitchen this past month. Rib cage still not entirely right, and my motivation is a wee bit sunk, but I'm trying. These last few months have been rather hard, my friends, but thanks to a great physio, I am finally getting there. I feel like my life has been kinda topsy-turvy; a difficult illness can be a bit of a life-changer I find. My sister says that now that the once-in-600-years lunar eclipse is over, things will get better. And it will, and they are!
Our first Christmas decorations went up today, so I'm feeling like life is getting back to normal. So I hope you're all doing well, my friends! Looking forward to your posts this month.
In My Kitchen:
|there was lemon cordial|
|and choc-coated strawberries|
Not homemade, but ordered with love from a local gift service. This was a huge thank you to Mr P. who has looked after me wonderfully during my illness. And that's not easy for a disabled fella. He is Super Man, I tell you.
|and preserved lemons|
And I made preserved lemons with the rest of the Meyer lemons. They are mild and soft-skinned, which makes them easy to shove into the jars. And now we wait till they get ... just right.
|yep another book|
This is a collection of weekly posts by Belinda Jeffery. I have been to a couple of her wonderful cooking classes in the Northern Rivers area. Sadly not possible these days due to Covid, as she is over the border. I adore her writing, her recipes and her kindly, thoughtful and respectful manner.
|and a Masterchef knife|
Not in my kitchen in this photo, but normally. Goodness knows what the locals thought as I waved my knife around. I can't even remember what the knife was doing in the car when we took a drive to the seaside for a walk. It was so marvellous to get out of the house after what seemed like aeons.
|the kitchen poster I did up for my friend|
She asked and I obeyed. Kitchen poster with some of my drawings duly done and dusted and dispatched. Like my blue shoes?
|chunky apple sauce with lurking apples|
I'd had half a dozen apples lurking in the crisper drawer for weeks. Throw them to the birds or make some apple sauce? Yep sauce it was; now used in muffins and soon in an apple cake. That's it for now. See you soon, global people. Everyone welcome to join in for In My Kitchen.
