I wanted to give an update of what's been going on in my kitchen. There has been only little cooking going on, I must confess, or the cooking has mainly been done by my partner, as I've been busy with other things. But I still have some nice new things to share with you.
I have a new cactus that looks really nice on the window sill in the kitchen. I bought it at a local street fest and put it into one of my Finnish tea tins.
There have been more flowers in my home, like these cabbage flowers and protea. They were so irresistable looking in the market so I had to get them.
Have you tried tomberries? Apparently they are world's smallest tomatoes. I had never seen them before, but of course had to get them now. They are just tiny tomato balls, and quite a neat idea to add to salads etc.
This chilli powder is a great spice addition to many Mexican style dishes. It's not too spicy, but adds a nice flavour.
I tried risotto chips with roasted tomato and basil flavour, which were quite nice. It's good to have different snacks once in a while.
Here are some various vegetables and fruit that I've cooked with, and below are some recent dishes that came from my kitchen.
My partner's seitan steak with mashed potatoes and leeks. He makes such good seitan dishes, and this steak was just perfection.
I regularly make these twice-baked potato skins with leeks and cheese. They are so comforting.
Good old rice and beans combination for a weekday dinner.
These huge bean burgers were a great purchase, such firm patties. I served them with halloumi and tomato-chilli sauce.
I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings, who is hosting the In My Kitchen challenge.
Have a nice weekend!
