It seems like just the other day that Peter and I were enjoying our summer holidays, discussing our plans for retirement at the end of 2013 and wondering whether the year would pass quickly or slowly. Well, here we are well into April, an icy wind is blowing outdoors bringing a change in the seasons... and haven't the months just flown past! There are fresh apples in my kitchen this month, together with an assortment of Autumn leaves that bring warm colours into the house.
I've been feeling unwell for a little while, so I treated myself to these Gerberas, a flower that my lovely CEO, Jane, often shares around in our office at work. The colours are so cheerful, one cannot help but feel brighter by their presence.
In my kitchen are Autumn pears, fresh from the Capital Region Farmer's Market, just down the road from our home.
In my kitchen are just a few of the books I found at Lifeline's Autumn Book Fair. I paid between $2.00-4.00 for each one and, with all monies raised going to help such a wonderful charity, I was only too happy to fill my 'granny' shopping trolley!
Also in my kitchen are Moorish Harira and Harissa from Spice Bazaar, one of the little goodies that my Peter brought home from an interstate trip. We are looking forward to cooking with these fragrant ingredients!
And lastly, in my kitchen is a range of very interesting gourmet salts from The Mushroom Man, Marco Marinelli, who knows how much I love cooking with his wild mushroom and black garlic salt, so he very kindly sent me these to road test. You will find The Mushroom Man at Adelaide's Central Market, but you can also shop for his products online.
