In My Kitchen...new stools
Since we moved in I've been on the look out for some affordable wooden stools and I've found that they are surprisingly hard to come by. When I saw these advertised on special in our paper I made the trek across town with the boys and I am very happy with my purchase. I love a good place to perch around a kitchen.
In My Kitchen...Nan's things.
My Nana recently turned 84 and due to some health issues she has had to move into a retirement village. This has understandably not been an easy thing for my Nan; trying to condense your whole life into one room of belongings and watching other people declare your things as 'junk' or needing to be thrown out would be quite confronting and upsetting. Nan asked us to come by and select some items for us to keep and here are a few of my selections. The biscuit barrels are easily the thing I recall most when I think of Nan's kitchen. It was such a treat to open the lid and be surprised by the contents, oh how exciting when it was a Tic-Tic biscuit, even better if it was yellow!
In My Kitchen...new ingredients.
My first trip to Costco resulted in this coconut flour and these Inca berries and I found the coconut sugar at my fruit and veggie market the other week. I got all excited as they are ingredients I have read about on numerous blogs but now I don't really know what to do with any of them, any ideas?? I also got some pink Himalyan salt cheaply at our local NQR, at least I know how to use that.
In My Kitchen...from the garden.
Our new veggie gardens have started slowly but I have just picked these tomatoes - I'm not sure which heirloom variety they are but I am seeing then in a tomato and bococcini tart.
In My Kitchen...MJ's art
Until recently, when MJ would proudly show me his drawings my responses included 'I love the colours you've used', 'Tell me about what you have drawn' and 'Well done, you've filled the whole page', yep, I had no ideas what he had drawn! So the conversations are much easier now I can recognise the people and the sun and the trees and the water!
Any ideas for cooking with coconut flour and coconut sugar?
