July was such a busy month in my kitchen and I don’t have all that much to show for the start of August for Celia’s peek into my kitchen. These tins were part of my Christmas gift from my husband; I unwrapped them and put them on the lounge coffee table, where they have stayed since. It is time to utilise them in the kitchen now.
Perhaps I will use the larger one to store these dried lime leaves I bought during last week.
I found these wasabi peanuts at Eastern Temptations last week, a happy reminder of My Pal Sal and I’s travels in Hong Kong.
I am exploring rices of the world at the moment and was quite intrigued to find ‘Bonnet’ rice. Apparently it is the generic household rice in the USA?
Supper last night was Babotie; probably our national dish. A curried mince covered in an egg custard and traditionally eaten with yellow rice studded with raisins, known as ‘wedding rice’. Recipe can be found here.
