Now it's time to have a look at what's been happening in my kitchen lately. It has been another busy month, and I haven't spent too much time in the kitchen, but have a few nice new items to show.
There have been plenty of blood oranges and lovely veg in my kitchen recently. It has cheered my winter up a lot! This morning I had again freshly pressed blood orange and lemon juice to start off the Saturday.
I also have a new winter-themed Moomin mug that I got from my mum for Christmas. It's nice to sip warming drinks from this one and watch the Winter Olympics. Are you also following the Olympics?
There is a cute pink pony hook on the fridge keeping my oven mittens tidy.
I just love all sorts of retro tins, so it goes without saying that I had to get this smoked paprika tin with an aviation theme. I bought it at a covered market in Sweden.
I have yet to try this white miso instant soup, but I can imagine that it's very nice and warming, and a convenient dinner on busy weekdays. I will try it very soon.
These wholemeal Spätzle (German egg noodles from Swabia) were really tasty. I had them the traditional way with fried onions and cheese. Spätzle is one of my all time favourite foods.
Here are some dishes that I've cooked lately. I'm still very much cooking comfort food, as it's still winter and chilly.
The other day I made a nice and warming vegan lentil curry, which is always a good idea.
This is a classic Finnish dish: cheesy oven sausages, of course as a veggie version. Sometimes I crave these wholesome dishes of my childhood and try to make veggie versions of them. It tastes better than it looks, and it's brilliant with mashed potatoes.
I've made some warming soups, like this carrot, red lentil and potato soup. I've also eaten much more soups at work than usual. They are just perfect for this season.
I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings, who is hosting the In My Kitchen challenge.
Have a great weekend everyone!
