Well, since last month's IMK post, Mr P. and I have traversed half the country. We took a quick trip (tee hee) to Ballina in Northern Rivers, New South Wales via the capital city Canberra, and on to Newcastle, then Ballina, then home. We've had a fabulous break of it. Soooo nice to be back in one's own bed though, isn't it?
We drove through Lismore and Murwillumbah on the way home. It was so sad to see that Lismore especially has been ruined. It was deathly quiet, with many shops and buildings still in total disrepair. Heaven knows how and when and if these places will come back to life. There are people sleeping in their cars, or living in tents and caravans - truly heartbreaking, with winter almost upon us. Winter is mild here but it's still a terrible thing to have to do.
It feels a bit heartless to talk about 'things' in my kitchen, but here we go. Mr P. and I have donated money and clothes etc for the cause; and a local woman drives down each Friday taking all sorts of necessaries to the displaced residents. Maybe our new Government will do more now. So happy to see that Australians decided they'd had enough of the uncaring government we've had for too long.
In My Kitchen:
|I love me some Worcester!|
I love Worcester! And a black garlic version sounds like a winner. I bought this at our mate Lucy's providore store in our local village. Can it be as good as my homemade one? We will see:-)
|yep another cookbook|
I bought this one on our travels, at the National Arboretum in Canberra. A friendly waiter suggested we visit here, and how right he was. A simply wonderful place to spend some time, with children flying kites, and everyone enjoying the (very) bracing weather.

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. And a curveball is welcome - whatever you fancy; no need to be kitchen-related (see my certificate above).
