In My Kitchen – April 2016

We are still enjoying beautiful extended summery days, however the early mornings and late evenings are somewhat chilly, reminding us winter will soon be here.

Thanks to Maureen at The Orgasmic Chef for managing our monthly get together’s.

Everything in my kitchen this month are all gifts!  How awesome! ♥

Is a beautiful dinner service inherited from my Nanna – my mom’s mom.  It has been packed away for the better part of 40 years and with the folks move to the River and having an already fully packed kitchen, they thought I would enjoy using it.  ♥

In My Kitchen – December 2015

Wow, the end of another year!  Before we wipe our eyes we will be sharing bits and piece in our kitchen in 2016.

As always a big thank you to our friend Celia for bringing us all together each month with these fun IMK posts. 🙂  I am looking forward to next year. xo

Was one of my favourite meals, Green Thai Curry Chicken.

Are a few “inherited” glass pieces from new friends Anton and Diane.  Their mom/in-law passed and I was lucky to receive a few treasured pieces.  Mints have never looked prettier in a crystal lidded jar.

Is probably my favourite piece from Anton and Diane as it reminds me of a mixing bowl my Nana had.  Funny how the brain remembers things as my aunt still has my Nana’s bowl and it looks quite different to mine.  I was so excited about this bowl that I had to use it right away.  I will share the recipe soon.

Is a matching serving dish and bowls, also from Anton and Diane.  The bowls are the perfect size and just what I have been looking for.

Are more gifts from Anton and Diane.  These mini baking tins are adorable.  I see some Christmas baking coming on.

Is the most wonderful gift from our neighbours who are only out at the river over weekends.  I keep an eye on their home when they aren’t here, well only when I have to really and they gave me a loving gift as thanks.
