Here I am writing this a wee bit early as Mr P. and I are heading off to Toowoomba for my post-birthday weekend. He spoils me! Presents, lunch, cake, a trip away ... We went to an Italian place on the river (nope, no pizza here) with a couple of friends for my birthday lunch. So delicious! All three of them had crespelle, while I had melt-in-the-mouth snapper with hazelnut cream, beetroot and orange. There are surprisingly few riverside restaurants in this river city, so it's lovely to sit here, to eat, drink and be merry.
Next month's IMK post will have more of the gifts I got. But this post will show you one of my gifts from Mr P. Lucky me :-) I'm looking forward to seeing your goodies too. Hope to see many of you here this month, my friends. Everyone everywhere is welcome to join us! Show us what you've got :)
In My Kitchen:
|I love Japanese foodstuffs, and this one has it all!|
|and some salmon caviar - hand milked I think!|
|there were raspberry muffins for a school fête|
|and I bought local honey (bees using nectar from up the mountain)|
|I froze blitzed tomatoes - cherry and truss|
|and broke off a piece to add to a curry (so handy)|
|I bought myself a Japanese Donburi bowl called Speckled Snow|
|and grabbed a jar of local cumquat marmalade|
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.
