Welcome to another little tour of my kitchen.
Way back at Easter time we sampled a couple of bottles of Chocolate Stout from the Mildura Brewery. Not surprisingly it tasted very much like chocolate and was quite thick in texture. I imagined it would be best enjoyed beside a fire on a lazy Saturday afternoon in the depths of winter. In reality we drank ours in a rather tired and grubby state as we unpacked from our Easter camping trip. It was still very enjoyable.
A stack of warm pita bread fresh from the oven. I use a recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s incredible book The Bread Bible and it is always soft and delicious. We usually enjoy it as homemade yiros teamed with roast lamb, salad and thick tzatziki.
This delicate and slightly wonky cup and saucer is the sixth piece in my little Mud collection. It was a birthday gift from my husband last month and I treasure it already. Originally I planned to just use it on the weekends but I have used it almost everyday since I received it.
A beautiful bag of organic rolled oats just opened and ready to be made into muesli. There is just so much goodness in this 8kg bag.
I am picking beautiful crunchy beans from my garden as well as delicious Chinese cabbage.
Lastly a batch of no nonsense biscuits baked for my hungry farming family. With the weather getting cooler there seems to be a constant demand for smoko and snacks to send out to the paddock. This recipe is one of the simplest and easiest biscuit recipes I have ever used. It came from Down to Earth by Rhonda Hetzel and I added pecan nuts to the basic recipe.
