In My Kitchen – Feb 2015

In My Kitchen Feb 2015

Well it is that time of the month AGAIN! I have been very busy in my kitchen and very busy selling Thermomixes. Most of what is in my kitchen this month is there because it has grown over summer in my garden. We have had a very wet summer here on the Gold Coast, so everything in the garden is out of control. I am looking forward to it getting a bit cooler so I can spend a bit more time pottering around!

In My Kitchen is corn. I love fresh corn and it is really hard to get non genetically modified corn and organic is very expensive. This year we planted more than we could eat and have been cutting, blanching and putting into the freezer, but we have also enjoyed it hot and fresh with lots of butter and cracked pepper.

In My Kitchen are beans, lots of beans, too many beans πŸ™‚ I am about to make the Passionfruit Garden’s Bean RelishΒ so I will let you know next month how it turned out.

In My Kitchen Pickled Radishes… thanks to the recipe from the wonderful Jane Grover.Β I have spoken about Jane and her book “Naked Food” which I love. I planted these radishes specifically to pickle. Radishes only take 6 – 8 weeks to grow and these are wonderful on salads and with cheese platters.

In My Kitchen are news paper articles… so sorry but it didn’t go on the web πŸ™ just in print here on the Gold Coast. It was a lovely full page article so I could only take a photo, sorry.. but it was a great article about my very tidy pantry, my love of good food that you make from scratch and also how I go into people’s homes and help them get organised with the food prep and shopping, to help them save money each week on their food bill! (that is my other job, beside blogging and demonstrating Thermomixes).

In My Kitchen is more Sourdough… thanks to Penelope daughter of Priscilla. I think that this is my best white loaf yet! I have made many different varieties, which have all been wonderful, but this white loaf was so delicious!

In My Kitchen are Birthday Cards πŸ™‚ Yes I had a birthday on the 31st Jan and turned 44. There will be more about turning 44 on Monday in my Monday Musings Post. I particularly like the card on the left and laughed out loud on reading it, as it is exactly whatΒ I do while watching food shows! πŸ™‚ Don’t you just love friends who really know you!

Thanks so much for having a look around my kitchen, I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to pop over to the beautiful Celia @ Fig Jam and Lime CordialΒ to see all the other IMK post this month.

Enjoy Irresponsibly!

I have been cooking since I can remember. I am a Thermomix consultant, so now (whenever possible) try to give you Conventional AND Thermomix methods for the recipes. I like to share tips on how to save money and how making food from scratch isn't really that hard (especially with a Thermomix). If you have any questions about the Thermomix or cooking/food in general please email me as I'm happy to chat.

    Liz, Happy (belated) Birthday — hope you enjoyed your special day! Your corn photos were breathtaking, as were your bread baking pictures and organizational skills. (Thanks for the inspiration!) Apologies if this appears as a “duplicate comment”… don’t know what I clicked, but I got “stuck” on your second corn photo, happily so, lol! Hear, hear for non-GMO produce.

    Happy belated birthday! And you look so lovely in that newspaper photo, Liz! I’m glad Penelope’s still looking after you – that loaf looks fantastic – and your corn looks perfect. We grew it once, but all the cobs were a bit wonky!

    I rally could use your help to make order in my kitchen. I seem to just bounce from one cake to the next and 6 recipes in between. After all that order you still have time for growing vegetables, you are amazing. I wish I could get my hands on that card it is very funny. Love your article too.

    Heaven! Every (almost) single bit here I love! Love my Tupperware, love corn and beans. Pickled radishes up there in my list of top 10 pickled things, Make and love sourdough (no priscilla though). The only thing we differ on is I’m not into cards. Love and appreciate the clever and artistic creations but hate getting them as I can’t see the need to keep them and feel bad when I piff them after a couple of weeks. Happy with friends to send me a photo or write on a scrap of paper. πŸ™‚

      LOL That is great Maree πŸ™‚ I have to say that I am a bit of a card hoarder. I do try to scrapbook a couple of pages of my fav cards each year and the rest I do recycle πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for popping in πŸ™‚ Liz xx
