In my kitchen I have been making pasta. It would be easier if I hadn’t lost the clamp that locks the pasta machine onto the bench. Where did it go? I need a third arm to hold the machine in place as I feed the dough through the machine. Making pasta is a messy process; I had flour flying around the kitchen. But I have to say, there really is no comparison between store-bought dried pasta and the Italian-mama version where you and your apron and every horizontal surface is covered in flour.
In my kitchen I have some Whoop Ass Hot Sauce. I truly bought it because I liked the presentation of the bottle. I believe it’s super, super hot but I haven’t tried it yet.
In my kitchen I have condiments sent to me by the Beerenberg company. There’s Scotty’s burger relish that’s full of spices, fruit and vegetables and is apparently meant to make your burger mouth-watering. There is also Graham’s Hot Chip Sauce which is a blend of sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. This would be a refreshing change for chips from the standard tomato sauce accompaniment. I’m totally set for my next burger and chips night.
In my kitchen I have a lot of berries. There is a man who drives around my suburb in a van and when he can find a legal park he pulls up and sells farm-fresh berries from the footpath. The quality is amazing and the price about half what you pay in a supermarket. The gorgeous platter the berries are sitting on is a birthday present from my mother. It’s a large ceramic bowl in natural colours which will be well used by Hotly Spiced Headquarters. Get ready to see its presence in lots of upcoming posts.
In my kitchen I have a Nutri-Bullet. Are any of your husbands addicted to infomercial shopping? Mine leads the pack. The delivery man makes regular stops to our home and this is what was delivered a few weeks ago. I’m told the purchase was inspired by my juice fast. Every morning juices are made and I have to say the Nutri-Bullet has won me over. It doesn’t take up a lot of room, it’s so easy to clean, it makes juices in just a few seconds and it encourages you to fill up on a lot more of the good stuff.
In my kitchen I have this absolutely beautiful bowl with a set of salad servers. My cousin Megan thoughtfully gave this to me for my birthday. She thought it would be useful for my blog. It certainly will be. I love the size of it and the colour and it’s surprisingly very lightweight.
In my kitchen I have two gorgeous girls who love each other so much. They both have a wicker basket to sleep in but during the winter they prefer to share and cuddle each other all night long. In their old age they’re also inclined to a few daytime naps and so again, they synchronise their sleeping and share the same space.
So that’s what’s happening in my kitchen this month. If you’d like to participate in this series, be sure to link up with Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial before July 10.
