In My Kitchen – March 2014

Here we are again at one of our favourite times of the month, sharing in Celia’s IMK Posts.  March came around very quickly.  The memories of the festive season are still vividly fresh in my mind as if it was all just last week.

In my kitchen…

Were some chocolate cupcakes.  These dairy free morsels are still my favourite and it’s just as well I don’t bake them every week as I would not stop eating them until they were all finished.

Is my latest favourite indulgence.  This double cream Greek style plain yoghurt from Woolworths is FABULOUS and as addictive as the cupcakes.  Don’t think I could go a day without it and buy 2 big tubs at a time.

Are non Nespresso coffee capsules.  Pete says these are as enjoyable as the Nespresso capsules and work out about R2 cheaper per cup.

In my kitchen…

Are 2 new Tupperware containers.  I really didn’t need them but loved the colour and they were very reasonably priced.

Is my ever loved fruit bowl, a gift from my Aunty Christine many years ago.  It has stood in the same spot on the kitchen counter for the past 11 years and has overflowed with  juicy sweet figs this season.

Is my favourite, favourite wooden spoon.  I have put a teaspoon next to it so you can see how small it is.  I have searched everywhere but sadly I cannot find another one like it.  I am starting to think I must find somebody who can turn another one on a lathe for me.

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.


Tupperware and oranges

It is safe to say I LOVE Tupperware and probably own enough for 2 families with a few spares on the side.  I have to resist the urge buying more and a good motivator is it has got frightfully expensive. I wonder if there is a Tupperware support group for people like me?

Most of the cupboards in our home have Tupperware in them, storing all sorts and keeping things neat and tidy – I do draw the line at the garage though as Pete happily drains engine oil and the likes into them so we save ice cream containers for that. 🙂

Anyhoo, one of the most nifty little gadgets that Tupperware make is an orange peeler.  It’s the strangest looking implement and I will not be without the two that live in my third drawer in the kitchen.  They work very well and if I could, I would send all of you one as a gift.

Our friend Nick was kind enough to share a big bag of oranges with us the other day and I have been trying to get a few shots to show you the orange peeler in action but I have not been very successful.  I hope you get the idea all the same.

Thanks Nick, the oranges are lovely and sweet and very juicy.
