In my kitchen…
…the Breville All-in-One is getting a work out. Jalna sent it to me and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s such a great size and is super easy to clean and store.
… is my mum’s childhood cookbook. I borrowed it over the weekend to make the rock cakes, it’s the recipe we always used as children and still my favourite!
…was a cake plate of profiteroles. J and I tend to watch Masterchef the day after it airs (due to it being cold and not getting a full nights sleep just yet, we are usually in bed VERY early). And after the croquembouche episode, J asked if I’d ever made choux pastry, I hadn’t so we thought we’d give it a go. These were absolutely amazing, sadly there’s only one left now, and I’ve designated it J’s.
… the first dozen of eggs that we’ve had to buy since we had chickens, glares at me. I wanted to make lactation cookies for a friend who needed a boost, so we had to buy some. I think we’re going to need to get some new chookies.
… are these two jars. Found in a local op shop.
…some dark beer waits to be poured into the slow cooker, with beef cheeks, mushrooms, carrots and other treats for a winter warming meal.
…is a 4 litre tub of local olive oil. This tin costs us $60 and we probably buy one a month. I don’t know if that works out cheap or dear but I like buying locally, so I don’t care.
