IN MY KITCHEN FEBRUARY 2020
Well it is 2020 and lots of things have been happening In My kitchen since my last post, besides the fact that I turned 49, so this is the last year of my 40’s and then the BIG 50 in 2021.
Christmas has come and gone… it was a difficult one because it was the first one without both my mum and dad. I didn’t really have to do much this year, just bring the ham, oh and make my Cheese Biscuits that everyone loves.
I also made Pea and Ham Soup out of the ham bone and popped it in the freezer for winter, I make mine in the slow cooker, it is so easy and delicious and freezes so well.
HOLIDAYS AWAY FROM THE KITCHEN
Mr N and I spend New Year at Alexander Headland in Queensland and had a wonderful relaxing break, then took off for the far north coast of New South Wales to explore some camping areas for this year and also spend some money in a few places that have been fired ravaged. It was a bit scary to see how much of the forest on the side of the Main Highway has been burnt and also, how high it went, It must have been terrifying for the Fire Fighters, I don’t even know how they do it, but I am so appreciative that they do as my Aunties property was saved because of them.
In our travels we stayed at an Air BnB in Ashby Heights, called the long house retreat, it was so fabulous we even stayed an extra night, I made some lovely platters with local ingredients and of course bacon and eggs for breaky each morning!
We also found this little general store to buy our breakfast supplies on Christmas Island that was so cute, we even had to wait for ducks to cross the road, it really made you slow down and appreciate all that you have.
LCHF/KETO RECIPES ON THE WAY
In My Kitchen has been of a lot of recipe development. I have been doing LCHF (Low Carb Healthy Fat) since 2009, since before it was popular, but my husband and I have been doing it together since 2017. So since we have been eating lots of these types of dishes, I thought it might be good to do some recipes and pop them into an e-book. But don’t worry you will be able to still have access to my tasty biscuits, cakes and slices, as I will still be making some nice things every now and then AND you can buy a lot of these recipes all ready in a handy e-book, however they are still free on my blog, I’m not going to take them down, I just decided to do and e-book to make them easier to print out and work with.
So back to other things I have been making in my kitchen. Well I tried my hand at making my own beeswax wraps and they turned out really well, If you would like to know how I made them Click HERE for the method. I’m also working on my own hand wash, shampoo and conditioner without nasties and to help cut down on the plastic we use in our house. Every little bit helps.
Thanks for coming to have a look in my kitchen this month, I look forward to seeing you next month!
