Some things in my kitchen

I am off on holiday soon, so this In My Kitchen blog post is a day early. 

We have friends flying over from America, once they are here - we will be taking a road trip.
So In My Kitchen, we have more homegrown tomatoes from the greenhouse, they have not been as big this year, but still very sweet and tasty.  Here is a link to some tomato recipe inspiration.
Some Sweet Paprika and Smoked Paprika. 
This Nimbu Pani translates as Salty Water.  I bought it to see if it stacked up to the authentic Nimbu Pani my Nanny made from scratch when i was a child, as well as Aunties.  It was not, still it was okay and D quite liked it.  I have promised to make him the more authentic and traditional Nimbu Pani one day, as he loves citrus sharp lemon flavoured things 



I picked this up from a supermarket, I am not sure why - as I can find veggie jerky at the Oriental supermarkets in the cities, but part of me was tempted and curious to see how it compared and if it was better, it cost a lot more that much i can tell you.
I've seen these Rice and Pea Crispy Chips : Sour Cream and Red Pepper flavour around for a while, I finally found a reason to buy them (for guests), and to try of course!
Both D and me like Wasabi and Horseradish, this jar picked up from a Eastern European shop promises to offer both. 
We have salad and lettuces growing in the garden, so this Herbes de Provence Vinaigrette Dressing will come in handy.
I picked up this Salt Liquorice for D.  He love the one that Pia K sent to me from Sweden years and years ago, but we have not found anything that comes close.  I had to spit this out my mouth after a while, it was too strong.  D said they were okay. 
This was a impulse buy. I like coconut and I don't mind coffee.  Its been rather warm here, so why not.  The coconut flavour did not come through strong though.
Like I said earlier, we have been eating a lot of homegrown tomatoes and finding lots of ways to use them at home.  I have been making as Pan Con Tomate - Catalan Tomato Bread quite a bit and its been delicious.  
There have been days when I don't want to cook, so its been lazy vegetarian burgers topped with slices of homegrown tomatoes, of course. 
I am sharing this blog post with Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen series.

  1. I hope you'll have a nice roadtrip, where will you be going? I can't wait to read more about it. Those tomatoes are so great, and I also like the sweet and smoked paprika jars. Veggie burgers sometimes feel like lazy cooking, but aren't they so tasty sometimes...

    1. Thank you VegHog, its been a good break - back home now. We travelled the West Coast of Wales which was new to me and D, then shared other parts of Wales with our friends that we have been to many times and like and love.

  2. You seem to have a very adventurous kitchen this month. Those products look pretty exotic to me, especially the drink with lemon, cumin, mint, and salt. The tomato bread also looks delicious.

  4. That horseradish looks amazing. Talk about doubling down – wasabi AND horseradish. Tomatoes are definitely the theme of the blogs this month! Ok – so now I have to go down the rabbit hole and read up on Nimbu Pani. I have never heard of it before and love to discover new food concepts.

  5. I envy you with a greenhouse, I have to get my tomatoes from friends or the farmer's market. I can't get enough of them while they are in season. Interesting things in your kitchen this month, those chips sound interesting.

    1. Thank you so much Liz.
      Best fruit and veg is certainly in season when full of flavour. Enjoy the tomatoes whilst in season, we may still have some to enjoy come October.
