Month: November 2014

In my kitchen… October 2014

It’s been a while since I last did this so am posting a few things from over the months.

In my kitchen…

is a seafood linguine. A simple dish I threw together one night when I couldn’t be bothered mucking around.

In my kitchen…

are some baked treats.

I was asked to run the cafe for the local Flower and Craft Show here in Blackheath and so I baked my socks off and roped in The Mothership™, Mr Boyfriend and Mr ex-Boyfriend to help. I named it ‘Greta’s Kitchen’ after my Gran who taught me how to cook.

I had carrot cake, banana cake, Malted Teaser brownies, Salty Seadog brownies (salted caramel) and scones.

Everything went down a treat and we had a good couple of days – I’ve been asked to front up again next year, so will have to put my thinking cap on and serve up something different next year.

In my kitchen…

are lamb and vegetable pasties. I had some leftover roast lamb and was going through some books to see what I could do with it and Delia suggested pasties – how right she was!

In my kitchen…

is a red cabbage, raw beetroot, green bean and sheep milk feta salad.

I’ve subscribed to a magazine via iPad from New Zealand called ‘Dish’ and got this out of the latest issue. Was very good!

Outside my kitchen…

is snow! We had a late fall of snow this year in October – 20cm in total. And to think the same time last year we were in the middle of bushfires. It didn’t last and we’re back to hot Spring weather and there have already been some fires further down the Mountains.

In my kitchen…

is the start of the Christmas cooking.

I made the pudding, which is an old family recipe and it’s now hanging up in the airing cupboard until Christmas Day. Now on to all the cakes, biscuits and other treats.
