I know I'm meant to be sharing some recipies with you, I will, I promise, next week. And also some foodie books I've been enjoying. But for today, since it's Friday, and it's a slow rainy day, and apparently there is a large storm on the way so I'm roasting a chicken in the oven and lots of veg too, and thinking of making some crackers with a new recipe that a friend just shared with me over the phone - before the power possibly goes off. So because of all that, I'll just share some photos today of what's been going on in the kitchen this week, some of what's been going on anyway.
Leek and potato soup - making some room in the garden for new seeds and seedlings to go in. I made a double batch, some for the freezer. (See energetic Liam there to the right. He's a good leek carrier). (Oh and see that bowl of eggs there, we've made some lovely new friends this month, and they have chickens!).
Flatbreads - made for the first time. Definately making these again, and I will share the recipe.
Playdough - yesterday, such a good one for keeping the children entertained. But I made the mistake of leaving them for a bit to do the stirring while I boiled the jug.
Nutty apricot slice - will share the recipe next week :)
Little lady taking a wee tea break, oh yes indeed dear.
Found one last jar of pesto in the freezer from last year's basil. I thought it was all gone.
Drying pasta to have with the above pesto.
Sushi - will share how we make ours soon. The kids just LOVE sushi.
Hope you have all had a lovely week, and if you're in New Zealand, wishing you a warm and hopefully not-too-stormy night. xx
