In My Kitchen – February

9 February 2012 in In My Kitchen

In my kitchen…..

Is the sweetest fresh baby tomatoes from our garden,  I collect some each day and we’ve been enjoying them with our peppery homegrown rocket in some lovely salads.

Here are my much used, very battered, trusty Le Creuset pans, purchased over 30 years ago together with 2 oval casseroles.  I recall Himself going pale when he realized how much I’d spent, “they will last a lifetime” I countered, and they are still in daily use.

I found this advert in an old Fair Lady cookery supplement that I have from the eighties…..go grab some tissues fellow foodies, this is gonna make you sob!  Shall we all fill in the form and send it off? :)

Also in my kitchen is this very special tray that was a present from my son and daughter-in-law for Christmas, I love it! My little dudes are the most handsome lads on the planet and if I’d known how much fun grandchildren would be, I would have had them first :)

Lastly, and by no means least, I had a lovely surprise the other day when a parcel arrived out-of-the-blue. It contained  proper crab crackers (is that what they are called?) and the goodies to get all the bits out of the claws. I made crab curry a while back and mentioned that one of the best crab curries I’d eaten was at a renowned Indian restaurant, but they didn’t have the correct utensils and I ended up cracking them open with Himself’s Leatherman!

Hence this lovely present from Tandy, thank you so much, I will think of you the next time I happily have crab curry dripping down my chin!
