How was everyone’s February? Did it go fast for you too? Was it because was a short month or was it just a busy one? I know I had a whole week away from cooking as I was busy with some other things that had to be taken care of. Now with March upon us, I’ll be busy in the kitchen for the next couple of weeks, preparing for another Grand Prix Party – sausage rolls, dumplings and chicken patties with maybe some slow cooked pulled pork. I’ll be sure to touch base to see how everyone’s March is panning out 🙂
Above is another cruise ship coming into dock at Port Melbourne. I’m not to sure on the name of this one as the sun was shining directly on Port Phillip Bay first thing in the morning. In the foreground, you can see the work for the Australian Grand Prix is in full swing. Mind you, since that photo was taken on the 22nd, so much more has gone up around Albert Park Lake.
I was running low on Himalayan pink rock salt & I happened to find some, or my sister did, in Woolworths. Not only did I refill my grinder, but a cute little jar too. Love the pink colours and this tastes amazing on steaks.
Coles sell Lilydale chicken, which is where I’m buying my chicken at the moment. Prahran Market is calling me this week so I may have to visit a chicken place there to see if there’s any free range chicken there. But for now, I’m rather enjoying the taste of Lilydale chicken, especially after watching Matthew Evans’s show For the love of meat.
This Tahbilk Marsanne was a great drop while eating my Asian spicy chicken tacos. It’s a cross between a Semillon and a Chardonnay. It was the perfect addition to eating spicy food. Give it a try if you see it in your bottle store.
Mayonnaise, it’s hard to find the perfect one. I know I could make my own, and probably should more often as it’s simple, but sometimes there needs to be some in the fridge for emergencies. This one has no preservatives or added colours or flavours. It tastes pretty good on my salad sandwich which is important with a good mayo.
I found these little beauties at an op-shop in Brunswick. TOP – four small dipping bowls as I just love them and can never have enough, although my hubby may say different 😉 MIDDLE – three little pinch bowls, which I can never have enough of and BOTTOM – are some placemats or I’ll use them as heat protectors for the dining table when I’m serving curries or roasts straight from the oven.
And last but never least is some Huon smoked salmon slices, which I found at Woolworths. Amazing flavour and Huon are proudly Australian owned and operated. As you know, I watched a 4 Corners episode last year, talking about our salmon industry and got turned off Tassal. I’m proud to support Huon all the way. I have the link in my December IMK for the 4 Corners episode.
