They do say that time flies when you are having fun. If that is true, I am having a whale of a time because I’m sure it was only a couple of days ago when I wrote my November contribution to this international get together.
Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial hosts nearly 50 bloggers who share a peep into their kitchen each month. It’s interesting, it’s fun and, by golly, it comes round so quickly! Go and have a look, you’ll love it.
In My Kitchen is :
A lovely piece of Hafod Welsh Organic Cheddar Cheese. It is made by Sam and Rachel Holden using raw (unpasteurised) milk from their own organic herd of 65 Ayrshire cows. That little line of blue? It has appeared spontaneously and has, in my opinion, made the cheese taste even better.
We get it from Andy at The Courtyard Dairy at Settle.
In My Kitchen is:
A dilemma! I couldn’t find any waxed paper when I went shopping so I ordered from Amazon. I wanted unbleached paper. It’s a bit late to worry about what chlorine bleach will do to me now but I have grandchildren so I do try to do my best to encourage unbleached products.
When it arrived, it had been made in the USA, so it had a large carbon footprint! Sometimes, you can’t win, can you!
In My Kitchen is :
A whole load of peanut butter ~ 6 lovely jars ~ which have arrived as part of my Christmas present from the California branch of the family. The first time I had peanut butter in America, I got very excited because it was so much better than the British brands. Sometimes it’s difficult to work out which are the children and which the parents!
The air miles don’t count because they were a gift. Just like all gifted cakes are calorie free. It’s true, you know.
In My Kitchen is was :
The last pieces of a cheese and onion pie ~ breakfast a few days ago. It was really good!
In My Kitchen are :
Loads of beans! On the left, before soaking. On the right after soaking. I often soak and cook them in large quantities and freeze in portions. That makes them as simple to use as canned ones ~ and much cheaper and better tasting!
Well, that was a very down to earth peep in my kitchen but satisfying for all that.
Now, how wicked would it be to open just one jar of that peanut butter before Christmas?
