In My Kitchen – April
1 April 2012 in In My Kitchen
Celia from the blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial hosts a monthly initiative whereby bloggers from all over the world show & tell what’s in their kitchens.
In my kitchen…..
…are loads of spices that I won.
They came in this package which was hand delivered to me by the general manager of Chisa Faya himself.
Being a local Kwa Zulu Natal company they support the Sharks (our provincial rugby team) and asked their Facebook followers to send in photos of their rugby supporter gear.
I posted this photo of Himself and I taken some years ago.
We had been invited by one of our suppliers Kyocera to the launch of a new photocopier range in Johannesburg at a place called The Castle. The invite said to wear black and white and be inventive, so being avid Sharks supporters we duly dressed in our black and white. Upon arrival at the castle severe doubts began to form when we entered the very posh venue and saw a lady playing the harp and people milling around in evening wear. We looked at each other in abject horror and were about to do a runner when the MD spotted us. At the time Canon Copiers were the sponsors for the Sharks, I had sewn Kyocera signage over all the Canon bits on Himself’s jersey which the big cheese from Japan thought was hilarious “lugby velly good” and he insisted we join him on his table for the evening! Was our humiliation going to get any worse?….. oh yes!
As we were in Blue Bull rugby territory we stoically took a great deal of teasing the whole evening and then we were paraded in front of the entire venue and given the prize for the best dressed! I did feel better when I saw some bird had made her dress out of newspaper and another chap came as a dalmation!
Thanks Chisa Faya for the great spices, I’m already hooked on the Chilli Chisa Mat.
In my kitchen…….
…is this fabulous Pineapple Chilli which is absolutely wonderful on top of any cheese, particularly goats cheese served on rocket.
In my kitchen…..
…is my favourite mug which a friend bought back from Scotland for me, it always makes me smile!
