Since the beginning of the year renovations at home are still on going and everything is upside down at the moment. Lots of sorting out and cleaning, so not much time spent in my kitchen or getting recipes posted. But there is still time for tea and coffee with a little sweet something on the side.
In my kitchen…
Love shortbread biscuits, especially when homemade. You can guess what day it was with this heart themed photo.
Pretty fish dishes picked up last year and haven’t even used them yet.
A quick vegetable soup thrown together for lunch with whatever ingredients were around in the kitchen. Leeks, onions, garlic, potato and butternut squash and some fresh bay leaf from the garden. And, some tasty za’atar scones on the side.
The lovely people at Alsora, one of our local supermarkets asked me to try some new products, some require a bit of baking which I intend to do later. Anyone tired any of these products? Also, love the handy reusable shopping bag which I usually put back into the car once I’ve unloaded the shopping, otherwise I would forget to take the bag on my next shopping trip. We use far too many plastic bags on this tiny island 😦
One our favorite desserts, warm apple torte flavored with cinnamon. I’ve been making this dessert for years and it’s probably an all-time family and friends favorite. Dollop of fresh cream on the side… delicious.
Also in the shopping bag from Alosra… a refreshing green tea with lemon and dark chocolate with cherry and almonds. I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate but with the addition of cherries and almond it wasn’t too bitter. Getting a few antioxidants on this tea break.
Well, back to cleaning and sorting for me but hopefully it will finish soon. The smell of baking is so much better than the smell of paint 🙂
