I recently started reading the lovely Sally’s blog, My Custard Pie. Yesterday, Sally gave us a peep into her kitchen and invited us to do the same. (She had come upon the idea via Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.)
I love seeing other bloggers’ kitchens and what they’re doing with ingredients. Apparently Celia does a monthly ‘In my kitchen picture post’, listing new and interesting things in her kitchen.
This is my kitchen, messier than usual as I am beginning to prep for a catering gig.
A new arrival this week; a lovely pack of Nicoletta cake decorating products to try out:
4 tubes of Glitter Writing Icing,
1 jar of Heavenly Hearts,
1 pack of Love Notes
1jar of Lilac Cake Crystals
This was my first attempt to see what the Glitter Writing Icing can do; I have much practising ahead…
Some newbies (and some oldies) on my shelf; I love NoMU products more and more. The purple tin in the foreground is my newest acquisition and I used it for our lunch. The large silver object in the background is a 1KG bag of their drinking chocolate, which I received on Tuesday. Thanks Paul and Tracy! My lucky clients are going to be so spoilt.
Back to that purple tin. We were gifted with a glorious, sunny day. Warm enough to have lunch outside, picnic style. Chicken thighs roasted with NoMU Pistachio and Sumac Dipper, crispy fried red onion and chunks of bread. Such a treat in the middle of the week.
And, do you know what? I didn’t feel at all guilty about taking a few hours away from my work …
Repeating an old observation of mine:
When you travel, you experience the glossy façade of a culture; the images on a brochure.
When you blog, you get a glimpse of the flesh and blood of other cultures; you see their grocery cupboards, their hopes and dreams, you feel their very heartbeats.
