In My Kitchen…

Every month I enjoy reading other bloggers’ ‘In My Kitchen’ posts and this month I am finally doing my own; In My Kitchen was created by the lovely, enigmatic, Celia from Fig, Jam and Lime Cordial and lots of bloggers share tours of their kitchen, giving us glimpses of their worlds and their cooking, so here goes…

In my kitchen..

    Aw, how nice to see where all that delicious food comes from! Those roses are a bit fab – didn’t the hubster do well?! Love Emily’s caricature work – she is so talented. Lovely first IMK post, Elaine!!

    That tissue box is gorgeous. It would cheer me up when I was sick, if that is possible! It’s always fun to see more descendants of Priscilla across the globe, glad you’re enjoying the bread baking.

    Very nice tour of your kitchen, loved it all, but my heart cannot decide between those cute bunnies, the lovely tissue paper box, and wow, roasted potatoes with za’tar! I just made roasted butternut squash and now I wish I had thought about using za’tar on them.. oh, well – there is always next time! πŸ˜‰

    The bowls of onions and garlic are a sight to behold. I don’t think I cook anything that doesn’t contain those two essential ingredients. I’m loving reading all the IMK posts and learning the names of Priscilla’s offspring. Good luck with the sourdough making and thanks for the kitchen tour.

    Oh I love absolutely everything in your kitchen! From the beautiful plate Selma bought you to the Iranian tissue box to the wonderful sketches of you! Your breads have been looking amazing! And thank you for being kind – “enigmatic” is so much nicer than the “barking mad” descriptor that I usually get! πŸ™‚

    Elaine, I saw your blog mentioned on a few other IMK posts (no wonder why!) Welcome (gratefully and enthusiastically) to you and your entrance to Celia’s fold. I love learning new things, and I have a feeling I’ll be learning a LOT from you!
