I have some red Chard and leeks (not shown) harvested from the allotment garden plot over the Easter weekend.
In My Kitchen, some ethically sourced Brown Rice from smallholders in Malawi. It was being sold in my workplace by a charity to raise awareness of Fairtrade fortnight.
We were in Bristol on a Sunday and had a good walk around. Walking from the city centre to a farmers market at The Tobacco Factory. There was a Mexican Stall. He had lots of chili sauces, and D did say to me to get a couple, but I declined. As I mentioned to my regular readers, my chili tolerance is waning, so I am abstaining for now. I did however, pick up some blue corn tortillas. I have never seen them being sold before. The stall holder, also advised, once they are open they can be frozen, which is good to know as we will never go through 40 unless I host a Mexican theme meal and invite some people over. On the way back to the city centre of Bristol, we also briefly popped into VX Bristol Junk Food. This time I came out empty-handed.
Over the Easter weekend, we went into Abergavenny. We went into a second hand and upcycled furniture shop. We came out with this wine rack.
It didn't quite fit where we had planned, so its temporarily placed on top of the kitchen cupboards laden with....no...not wine...but...
Flavoured syrup - the new ones in the kitchen are Chocolate Mint and Lavender. I got the Salted Caramel over Christmas for D. Yes, we do drink a lot of coffee, but I also figured these are good for cakes too. And when the nephews and nieces come over and want to play Coffee Shop.
In My Kitchen, there is a bottle of Gochujang Sauce, to go along with my Gochujang Paste and home-made Kimchi (not shown).
In My Kitchen, you will find some Jamaican Jerk Seasoning. I have made Jamaican Jerk Paste in the past, but this time I thought I'd give this jar a try as the one I tried in the past was a little too salty. This was good and I actually used it this time for my Jamaican Jerk Scotch Eggs.
In My Kitchen you will find some dried limes in readiness for a Middle Eastern recipe called Ghorme Sabzi.
A few weeks back, I made a Hazelnut Tempeh Pate at home, but I wanted to show my readers that I do also use some shop bought ones, such as this Granovita Olive Pate and Mushroom Pate.
In My Kitchen, you will pretty much always find Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice Infusion. Its one of my favourite tea. I was intrroduced to me by my best friend Leah, who lives in America. I hope one day we will meet again and drink tea together, once again.
And finally, some chocolate! No no Easter egg chocolates. This is actually the last box of chocolate we were given over Christmas. Look closely at the postcard or Christmas scene. I was especially impressed with the scene in the sky. This was quality chocolate and not at all sickly sweet and sugary.
I am sharing this blog post with Sherry Pickings for In My Kitchen series, an opportunity to take a peek into fellow bloggers kitchen world wide.
