Here's the robin that hangs out in our garden all year round. Its belly is not that red all the time but it makes its presence known with its chirping, this is simply to say that robins are not just for Christmas.
Last month kept me busy, that I failed to write up and take many pictures over the festive holidays; and it shows as I do not that have much in my kitchen, just a handful of kitchen related gifts.
First one comes from my mother in law, a pestle and mortar.
Secondly some marble coasters with painted elephants, this came from one of D's aunties.
Here is our 2019 Christmas tree with its eclectic ornaments.
Every year we get the tree a new ornament, this year we have this quirky old fashion typewriter., not food related I know.
D bought me loads of presents like music Cd's film DVDs, non fiction reading books and a very cool T-shirt, but the kitchen related ones are these three cookbooks, two of which are Vegan Christmas related: Happy Vegan Christmas; and Vegan Christmas Feasts. So funny, decades ago you could hardly find a vegetarian or vegan Christmas book and in the last two years there has been an explosion. My go to Christmas Vegetarian Cookbook has always been Vegetarian Christmas published in 1992 from the British Queen of Vegetarian Cuisine - Rose Elliot.
I look forward to seeing what's in you kitchen if you join in with Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen series.
