'Crikey', as a certain Aussie zookeeper used to say (and me, and me). What a year this is! Funerals and houseguests and lots of socialising - I think I need a rest, my friends. Well, as the saying goes: 'You can rest when you're dead'.
Things have been rather busy in my kitchen even with all the events, and guests. There was an art exhibition opening night, and Bookclub, and preserving, and cake-baking, and so on. Not all in my kitchen of course :=) Ah, you know what I mean.
It has been a year since the February floods here in south-east Queensland. It seems like forever ago. So many things changed - people's houses and livelihoods gone, events postponed, businesses shut. Tough times, but our community pulled through. Life can spin on a dime, as they say. Who knew such a flood would come out of the blue? And especially after the massive 2011 floods. And of course it's a year since the war with Ukraine started. Hold on tight, folks. Who knows what's ahead? :=)
Anyways, here's a few things from my February kitchen. Join in one and all with your latest kitchen happenings, please. We love to check out what everyone is doing.
In My Kitchen:
|a gifted tea towel from Ms. ML|
|choc pots a là Nigella Lawson|
|mediaeval hummus with rosebuds|
|a chocolate 'doughnut' from a local real estage agent! What the! ...|
|apple bundt cake|
|Worcestershire sauce on the go for 2-3 weeks|
|strawberry sake from the Japanese store (and Ramune lollies)|

Here's the curveball for this month. She is still sitting in the Gallery as I am lay-bying her. So in a few months' time, she will come home. She will join the other beauties of Catherine's that I have.
