Here is a little update from my kitchen in June. There seems to be quite a lot of pasta, but also some other things.
Fresh Danish peas have arrived! This means that my summer is saved! I love snacking on these peas, sometimes a bit too much. It just brings back childhood memories gathering fresh peas on huge fields. Those were the days.
There's new organic animal pasta in my kitchen this month, zoopasta tricolore, that looks so cute. There is also a nice game on the back of the box, surely it's not just for children! What sort of dish should I make with the pasta? I normally use animal pasta in soups, but it could also be something else this time...
I just had to get this blue masa harina flour for making tortillas to bring some more colour to my dishes. I already added some of the flour to homemade rolls, but not enough to turn them blue.
This Upton's jackfruit has such a nice branding, and I hope that it will be tasty too, as I haven't tried it yet. I got natural and barbecue flavours, and if they are any good, I might try the Thai flavoured one as well. I just need to decide, what kind of dish to make with them.
As you may know, I often bake rolls with vegetables myself, especially with carrots. I was now delighted to detect a new product in my local shop, rolls containing spinach, beans and carrots. They were very nice, but of course I will still be baking my own ones as well.
I was planning to use this vegan pasta topping in a dish for a vegan guest, but then I forgot about it, and ended up cooking something else than a pasta dish anyway. This means I have yet to try this topping, but I'm sure it will be savoury and herby.
Kuhbonbons are legendary sweets, and actually these vegan versions of the classic were very nice.
I absolutely love wild Danish cider by Æblerov, and now had this pear cider of theirs. It was wonderful and refreshing, and just the perfect drink for the summer.
I got these beautiful flowers for myself to cheer me up. I divided them into two small vases and they were absolutely delightful and quite durable.
I bough these black olives mainly because of the tin, and I may not open them anytime soon.
We had a vegan visitor from England, and he wanted to have vegan English breakfast. Hmm, I do prefer the continental one and he hadn't been outside of England for that long yet, but sometimes a veggie fry up can be nice. So I made this slightly non-traditional cooked breakfast with vegan sausages, potato rostis, mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh spinach, toast and baked chickpeas (as I didn't have any suitable beans at hand, but chickpeas were maybe nicer in my opinion).
Here is just a random weekday pasta with tomato and mozzarella, a frequent visitor in my kitchen, especially now in the summer season.
We've also had a lot of homemade mac'n'cheese lately. This one was made by my partner, and he adds a little bit more spices to the mix than I do, which is nice.
I am sharing this post with Sherrry from Sherry's Pickings, who is hosting the In My Kitchen challenge as usual.
