In My Kitchen – February 2013

I missed doing an IMK post in January so it seems like forever since I shared anything from my kitchen with you.

In my kitchen…

Are two of my favourite tray cloths – I can’t remember when I last made up a tea tray. Β Think I should bake some cookies and have a little tea party.

In my kitchen…

Are pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, poppy and linseed all awaiting to go into a loaf of bread.


In my kitchen…

Are the first figs of the season. πŸ˜€

In my kitchen…

Is a NoMU sleeve ofΒ spicesΒ which I was given by Pete’s nephew Simon. Β The sleeves were sponsored by @NomuChirps for Simon’s conferenceΒ @JSinSAΒ which was held late last year. I will hopefully be sharing some recipes soon.

Is a new addition to the family – a gorgeous kitty fridge magnet which I received from Simon and his lovely wife Elaine.

In my kitchen…

Is another brick of palm peet – I battle to find it on occasion so bought an extra one just in case.

What’s in your kitchen this month? Β Please remember to link back to Celia’s blogΒ Fig Jam and Lime CordialΒ if you partake in the fun.

  1. Those figs look beautiful! You won’t believe it, my camera is broken and I can’t even send it back to England to be fixed as the company I bought it from has gone into liquidation 😦 (it’s not even 2 years old) They are wanting more than half the cost of a new one to repair it, I am still deciding what to do. So no new posts from me.

    • Oh no Sue – how terrible! I am looking at upgrading mine and having heart failure at the costs involved and getting quite befuddled with what to upgrade to – I seem to have narrowed it down to the Canon 650D or 60D. The 60D is QUITE a lot more expensive though. Makro have great specials on at the moment – SO tempted to go for the 650D. Thankfully my Dad has offered to buy my current camera from me which helps a lot. What is your “broken” one again? Have a super avie. πŸ™‚ xo

  2. I just love these posts. It’s so lovely to see inside people’s kitchens. Those figs look really special. I’ve just started to see them in our shops too. And those embroidered cloths look like heirlooms xx

  3. Mandy, look at your figs!!! How wonderful – I’m guessing they’re the ones from your tree? And your tray cloths are exquisitely embroidered – they must be a sheer joy to use! So nice to peek into your kitchen again – we missed you last month! xx

  4. Lucky you to have such a large bowl of fresh figs in your kitchen. When they are available here, they usually are two for $3 and that is considered a good price.

  5. The figs are lovley- wish I had a treeful!
    Love the seeds for your bread- I haven’t made one with nuts and seeds for a long time.
    And tea does sound just right for IMK posts. It feels like a visit with friends in the kitchen!

  6. Embroidered linens–so lovely! I have some from each of my grandmothers and from my mama, all treasured as much for the connexions as for the beauty of the objects. As for the other goodies in your kitchen, all marvelous, and I admit to having fresh-fig envy! They look beautiful *and* delicious.

  7. Will you look at those figs!!! So plump and fresh. As much as I like these looks into your kitchen, Mandy, I think the figs stole the show this month. πŸ™‚

  8. I just love your IMK posts & I keep saying I’m going to join in – so much fun. Love that little kitty magnet you have. Now are those figs from your own tree? I’m looking outside now thinking how long it’s going to be before all the really fresh fruits will be around here…long time.

    • Diane, it would be awesome to see inside your wonderful kitchen every month. I look forward to when you do an IMK post. Yip, the scrumity figs are from our own tree, such a treasure. I will enjoy an extra fig just for you today. Have a super day and stay warm. πŸ™‚ xo
