Amazing October is here! It will be a month of pumpkins, squashes, scary ghosts and a lot of hygge cosying on the sofa under a blanket drinking hot chocolate. I also have quite a lot of stuff to share with you that's new in my kitchen, so let's get to it.
I couldn't resist getting an artichoke as a vase flower, as our local flower market had loads of them. It looks so cute in its vase and has been going strong for a week now. I hope that it opens up a bit soon. This is just my kind of flower! That pine cone picture in the background is also fairly new, a part of our apartment interior decor.
This sort of seasonal produce like cauliflower and heritage carrots have been in and out my kitchen recently. I love the different colours of the cauliflower and also the heritage carrots. I should be buying more of the colourful beets, but I'm quite bad at cooking with them. I'll need to think of some good beet recipes, as those root vegetables are all so tempting at the moment.
Few weeks ago this eco recycling bin for food waste and biodegradable stuff was delivered to our home by the city council. It contained biodegradeable bags as well, which you can re-order free of charge later when you run out. The bin itself is small in size and fits to our kitchen very well. I was so excited to finally be able to recycle my food waste. For me it's not so much for left-overs, but all the several vegetable stalks and peels etc. as we cook so much with fresh vegetables. The best part is that we fuel a local bus line with this waste, so cool!
Then I have loads of stuff from Finland to show you. I went to visit my family in Finland the other week, and had to buy some of my favourite foods, and also some new products, to take with me to Copenhagen. So here they are (almost all of them, there's more...).
Oltermanni cheese and a very sharp new cheese slicer – Oltermanni is my favourite cheese, so it was only logical to take some of it with
Pulled oats with tomato flavour – a Finnish protein product that I've also written about in the blog previously
Härkis – a broad bean protein product in tex mex and original flavours
Dried protein products – broad bean and pea crunches
Different rye breads and oat crackers
Copenhagen chocolate by Fazer – Finnish white chocolate with raspberry and liquorice to represent the taste of Copenhagen
Have a good week!
