September??! What the?! Yep Spring has sprung already. Hard to believe, and hard to believe that it has been a year since I had my fall and broke ribs and wrecked my ribcage, seemingly forever. And then in July this year, I fell again and turned my foot black! Just coming out of that now. Several friends have had falls and accidents and terrifying medical diagnoses this year. Just praying that better times are around the corner, for all of us.
But my kitchen is still going strong! I even managed to get blog posts up while injured (thank heavens for having a couple of recipes already made). And Mr P. has helped me with a recipe or two. Thank goodness for handy husbands who can cook. He even taught his female flatmates to cook over the years. We were all pretty much vegetarian back in the day so it was all rice, and cheese, and vegetables, and lots of beans. Good (if farty) times :-)
In My Kitchen:
|a get-well gift from my childhood friend who broke her wrist two weeks after my fall!|
|a beautiful Japanese whale plate by Minoru Japan|
|a cute little plate by Donna Sharam called Tiggy & Tiny|
|more Herbie's herbs and spices (silver coated fennel seeds at front)|
|pickles and olive oil from Mount Zero Olives|
|there were many double yolkers! (and even more)|
|a corner of my pantry - seeds, nuts and quinoa (and beans) and keyrings!|
|a lovely tumbler from Magnolia Mountain|
|and the curveball: 'Fishy Express'|
Another painting by our friend Catherine from Reason Gallery. Our walls (and plinths) are happily adorned with many of her artworks. I keep saying there's no more room on our walls, but somehow I find some!
That's it for this month; please join in everyone! And here's how:
Tell us 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.
