It seems I spoke to quickly last month as we have had a month of cold days. One month down, 2 more to go. Here’s hoping they pass mildly and that Spring shows her beautiful face with warm days.
In my kitchen…
Can’t think why I never included this a couple of months back. It is a bottle of bubbly Pete bought for me when we were in the Game store in Maputo, Mozambique. I only wanted it because of the kitty picture. Still haven’t opened it so have no idea whether it is drink worthy.
In my kitchen…
Is a kitty mould from my wonderful neighbours Dean and Lesley. I think I shall use it to make a few catnip treats for my fur babies.
In my kitchen…
Is a birthday present from my brother Chris and sister in law Elmien and their 4 littlelies. Thanks guys! I hope you will come and visit soon so I can make a few cupcakes for you.
In my kitchen…
Is a jar of homemade pickled onions made for us by our friend Cazzie. They are nearly ready to be eaten. Can’t wait to taste what they are like with the chilli.
In my kitchen…
Are Sistema mini sauce and salt and pepper containers from friends Frans and Yolandie. It was part of my birthday gift from them. They know we always take a picnic with us on the boat or when we go into the park so these containers will be very handy.
In my kitchen…
Is a Thai Green Curry paste, which I am sure will be used quite often through the winter cold nights. I use it most often for coconut curry.
What’s in your kitchen this month?
Please remember to link back to Celia’s blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial if you partake in the fun and drop her a quick note to let her know when your post will be up and please note Celia needs all IMK posts submitted by the 10th of every month.
Love the cat champagne. And I am making green chicken curry tonight because it’s so cold here at the moment we need something warming. And how lovely to have homemade pickled onions xx
Our weather has been as horrid Charlie – although some days are beautiful if you are outside – our home just stays like a freezer though – absolutely horrible. Can’t wait for an occasion to crack the bubbly. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
I’m intrigued as well about how the bubbly tastes!
Think once I hear that the flat we sold in Joburg is registered in the new owners name, I shall have to open the bottle to celebrate. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Love the bottle of champagne! And kitty shaped catnips….they’ll love you forever 🙂
My little precious lumps of sugar. Have an awesome day Tanya. 🙂 xo
So many wonderful things in your kitchen this month – I love these posts!
Thanks for stopping by Shari. I too absolutely love these posts! Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
I love that wine label! We got a couple of bottles of bubbles a few months ago…haven’t decided what to do with them. I look forward to your cupcake creations.
I would have a bottle of bubbly everyday if I could Angie! Hope you enjoy yours. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Oh, I love pickles. What a lovely gift they make… and bubbles are always a brilliant idea.
Pickles do make a lovely gift, think I should get cracking with some preserving. Have a super day Jennifer. 🙂 xo
I love the kitty champagne bottle! How fun is that?! And I have no doubt you’ll make some new beautiful cupcakes with that book too. In fact, I have no doubt you could make some that look even better than that cover shot on the book. 😉
Kristy, you are too kind, thank you! Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Hi Mandy, I could use your kitty mould to make kitty soaps!!
They would be quite small but very cute – send me your address and I will post the mould to you. You will get much more use out of it. 🙂 xo
Mandy that is very kind of you. Are you sure.
Absolutely! You will have to be a wee bit patient though as our postal service seems to be snail slow from our side but at least you will have it before Christmas. 😀
Oooh, cheers and here’s to your birthday xxx
Cheers Lizzy. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Hi Mandy, you always have such great and interesting things every month in your kitchen.
Thank you so much Cheri. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
I’m such a cupcake person, so I think I need that cupcake cook book lol. I am such a baker. Thanks for posting what’s in your kitchen Mandy :).
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we lived closer to each other then you could borrow the book for a while. Have a super day Kia. 🙂 xo
Had to Google that wine as I couldn’t think where it came from (espumante). It’s Portuguese! Not known for their sparkling so intrigued to know what it’s like when you open it 🙂
KP adores pickled onions but they have to be crunchy. Your gifted ones look like they’ll be delicious.
I was quite sceptical about the contents when we got the bottle but I just had to have it for the label Sally. I will report back on what it is like when I open it. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Thai Green Curry washed down with a glass of the cat champers, yep…. just the thing to battle the ridiculous cold weather we are experiencing. Top of 5c here today. Sigh!!!
2 more months of this makes me want to cry. 😦
Got these cool cake pop dispenser things, looking forward to giving them a whirl. Otherwise, not a lot happening in my kitchen.
Have a great rest of week lovely one. Squishy hugs and loves headed your way. Mwah! 🙂
5C – NOOO! That’s absolutely shocking! I thought our 17C was bad. Although our house is SERIOUSLY cold in winter so it is colder inside – great summer home though. 😀 Have a beautiful day sweet Anna. 🙂 xoxoxo
Miles will be very jealous of the cat mould. He would like it if we carved a statue of him and erected it in the garden. He’s a bit egotistical like that. The whole world revolves around him -if you know what I mean! Fantastic salt and pepper containers. What a fabulous idea! xx
At least Miles doesn’t have competition with another 2 like in our home! Wonder what he will think once wee Alice starts moving about on her own in his garden and home. Have a wonderful day Emma. 🙂 xo
The champagne made me giggle. Last month when we hosted our wine and cheese party, we were at the store looking for a bottle of wine and my husband spotted a label from a local wine producer with a money face on it. All evening I called it the “monkey wine” because I couldn’t remember the proper name. Well, it stuck. Now I will always think of it as such and I can’t help but think of your kitty champagne the same way! 🙂
Hee hee. I love how names can stick. Fabulous. Wish I could find your “monkey wine” to try. 😀 Have a wonderful day Judy. 🙂 xo
Cat bubbles, love it! Can’t wait to hear it tastes. You have inspired me to make a chicken curry this weekend too, it’s so cold here at the moment so belly warming food is essential! Thanks for the kitchen peek. x
I am hoping to crack the kitty bubbly in the next couple of weeks. All this anticipating, it better be good. 😀 Enjoy your curry Vicki and have a beautiful weekend. 🙂 xo
You have a lot of fun things in your kitchen this week. For dinner tonight I made fish packets with Thai yellow curry, coconut milk , and some thai aromatics like kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, etc. so delicious maybe you can use some of your Thai curry this way.
It must be heavenly eating in your home every day Bam. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Anything Cats is FABULOUS))!
I love that bottle, darling, Mandy.
Love from MN. xxxxx
I was drawn to it immediately when I saw it Kim! Have a beautiful and happy weekend dear. 🙂 xoxoxo
Oooh – I love a good pickled onion and homemade is even better. I’m sure you’ll enjoy those babies. Meanwhile…. That cat mould is very unusual to say the least. Quirky!
Thanks for the tour.
Can’t beat homemade Fiona. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Mandy, how appropriate to make catnip treats from your cat mould! I hope they enjoy them! cheers Kirsty
My cats devour catnip in seconds! They absolutely love the stuff Kristy. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
I could use some of those handy containers to decant small amounts of sauces. Very useful! I’m more a dog person but those molds are a great idea
The little containers are really going to be handy. Have a super week ahead Sandra. 🙂 xo
i gues it’s not a crime expecting something delish recipe post from you then….
I do need to post more recipes Dedy. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Thank you for a peek into your world…I take it you like cats 🙂 🙂
I love cats, all animals but my cats are my special angels. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
And you x
Nothing better than a bit of warming Thai curry!
Absolutely Misky. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Tha cat champagne caught my eye right away and hopefully you will laugh with me when I thought the cat tray was for making chocolate! The cupcake cookbook looks like fun!
Thanks for sharing your kitchen this month too!
I bet the mould would be perfect for making chocolates Joanne. Grand idea however I have gifted it to Glenda and will pop it in the mail for her tomorrow. She is going to be making soap. Can’t wait to see her results. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Cutie kitty! And those pickles – Julie loves ’em!
Julie & Alesah
Gourmet Getaways xx
Gotta love the kitties. Have an awesome day guys. 🙂 xo
I am so interested to know what kind of cat treats you would make – how interesting!
No sooner were the words written in the post and I have re-gifted it! I will just have to make little square treats. 😀 Have a super day Tricia. 🙂 xo
Looks like your kitchen is filled with delicious-ness! Thanks so much for sharing. Love the kitty mould. I was thinking chocolates too.
These are such lovely posts to share with everyone. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Love the champagne bottle, I might have picked out a bottle like that because of the kitty cat 🙂
Funny how we are drawn to things Moya. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
That kitty mould is very cute 🙂 There is nothing quite like homemade pickled onions.
Homemade is aways best Tania. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
That champagne label is too sweet – you’ll have to keep the bottle after you drink it! And cat shaped cat treats? Very cute! 😉
I will definitely have to keep the bottle Celia. I really do hope the contents are good – will crack it soon, just as soon as I have the news a flat we sold is out of our name and in the new owners name – that will be definite cause to celebrate. I have posted the mould to Glenda for her soap making. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Such a cute little sneak peak into your kitchen!! LOVE IT!!!! haha
Thanks so much Roxanne. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂 xo
We need to drink that adorable Cat spumante urgently! Thanks for the heads up on the curry paste, just the thing for cold Cape winter day.
If you like I can make you my coconut curry one of the nights you are here… 🙂 xoxo
Thanks for letting us see your kitchen. What an adorable bottle of bubbly! Have you made any cupcakes yet? If so, hope that they turned out well.
I can’t believe I haven’t made any cupcakes yet – I seem to go through phases. Have a wonderful day Maggie. 🙂 xo
I understand that! I do the same with different things as well!
Now that I think about it, I do this with a few things. 🙂
Lots of goodies in your kitchen this month Mandy but my favourite is those Sistema sauce bottles – will be keeping my eyes out for those. They always come in handy for mayonnaise, sauces & oils. How was your champagne?
I decided to wait on the sale of one of our apartments before cracking the bottle of bubbly. We are a few days away from registration so will know soon if it is good or not. Have a great day! 🙂 xo
happy belated birthday. i love the cat label and the cat mould. so cute. pickled onions? yummo.
Thanks so much Sherry. Think I shall have to enjoy a few pickled onion and cheese with crackers for an afternoon snack. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
