We have a new home to share all our goodies in our kitchens this month. With Bizzy Lizzy being busy for the rest of this year, Sherry from Sherry’s Pickerings has taken over the reins of IMK. Thanks Sherry for continuing on this fantastic monthly catch up. I just love seeing the goodies everyone shares and I love you joining me for In my Kitchen. If you’d love to share the goodies in your kitchen with us, we’d to love to have you join – no matter where you are in the world. Simply publish your IMK post on your blog by the 10th of every month and leave a comment with Sherry. Enjoy these goodies xx
Above is a bouquet of rosemary and bay leaves from our beautiful friends Noel & June, which they grow in their Richmond garden. I just love fresh herbs and this bunch was warmly received at our Grand Prix party. I popped them in take away containers to keep in the freezer for when I need ‘fresh’ herbs.
Also from our GP party, our other friends, Billy & Helen, brought me a beautiful mini orchid in my favourite colour, pink! I’ve never had orchids before, aren’t they so cute? I love them. Should I keep the plastic around them? As we live in an apartment, I’m scared the heating may kill them if I remove the plastic.
I just love this little bucket of black and white balloons that my friend Vanessa made for our GP party. It sat in the middle of the dining table on a checkered tablecloth, I just loved it.
Kojiro is quite at home on the dining chair, which we placed near the TV for people to watch the GP. He made himself at home when everyone left that I decided to leave it there. He often has his afternoon sleep there, if he’s not asleep with me on the couch.
Noodles. I usually buy dried rice noodles but I had a craving for spicy noodles one day and there was nowhere close that made take away noodles. So I bought these. They’re just so easy to use. I added them straight into the wok, with the spicy chilli sauce and my craving was satisfied in less than 10 minutes! Perfect!
This bowl of lemons & limes was $4 the whole lot, which I found at South Melbourne Market. Usually in the supermarkets, you could maybe buy one or two limes or lemons. Now I just have to find a use for them. Any ideas?
And lastly is some Huon Tasmanian salmon cured in whisky. I must say it was a pleasant change to smoked salmon. I love eating this with avocado on toast with scrambled eggs – yumm!
Oh, and in case you missed my Marshmallow Easter egg slice, which you could replace the Easter eggs with chocolate buttons. It’s sweet but you can’t stop at one slice! My nephews even thought it was better the next day x
