I have been very lucky in my kitchen again lately, as I noticed that I have so many new cute and tasty things to share with you. I hope you like my recent bounty. I'm sharing this post with the new In My Kitchen blogging event host Sherry from Sherry's Pickings and I would like to welcome Sherry as the new host. I'm sure that we will be sharing some wonderful things together.
I instantly fell in love with this pineapple light when I saw it in the shop. Luckily it wasn't too expensive, so I got it, and it has been in operation a lot ever since. It's USB operated so I normally keep it connected to an external battery.
I was coveting these beautiful measuring cups for a little while before actually buying them. I'm quite fond of all things copper at the moment, and these small cups were just the thing to get. Obviously I haven't used them for measuring anything yet, just have admired them.
I have tried the Holy Cow organic cottage cheese a few times before, and I think that it's a really good product.
I was curious about this seaweed dulse, but haven't used it in any dishes yet. Would you have any recommendations? I've heard that it's very rich in vitamins, so should be a good addition to some broths for example.
Finally blue additions to dishes are easily possible with the amazing Blue Maize tortilla chips! They don't just look cool and quirky, they are also very tasty and organic too. There will soon be a couple of dishes on the blog featuring these tortilla chips.
I recently tried this local Dancing Cows New Forest oak aged gin and found it to be very good. The flavour that comes from the oak aging is very interesting and different to other gins that I have tasted. I look forward to tasting their other products too. They also brew excellent beers, some of which I've already sampled.
One of my absolute new favourites among drinks is the very refreshing Rosie's Pig Flat Tyre Sparkling Cider with Rhubarb. It comes in cute small cans. It's a sparkling cider, which is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs, and the hint of rhubarb is just perfectly refreshing.
Yes, and this Altbier was just Altbier in a very cute bottle that I had to get. It was good tasty beer and certainly refreshed some of my memories from Düsseldorf.
And yet another beer, Paradox Rye by Brewdog. We just had to try this can of cask-aged imperial stout when it was for sale at our local Brewdog pub. It almost seems like men's after shave or something when the can comes in that little cardboard box.
We also often eat these Salty Dog crisps at Brewdog. They are so nice and a perfect pub snack. I really like the artwork too.
So this all was in my kitchen in May. I hope you liked the items.
