In My Kitchen – March 2014

It seems like I’m squeaking by with my posts every month as I find posting ‘In My Kitchen’ by the tenth of each month really difficult to do. So much of what goes on happens after the tenth of every month..that I am unable to post! Alas, I do understand our dear host Celia’s predicament…this monthly peak into other people’s kitchens is a lot of work for her and probably would take up all of her time if there wasn’t a dead line. So, a huge thanks to Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for this fun little monthly view into kitchens around the world.

Let’s kick off the month of March with Mardi Gras!kingcake1I used the new copper bowl I got for my birthday (In February) to make my first soufflé.110133I called my Aunt Diana and finally got her recipe for Ukrainian Cabbage Rolls. I made up a couple of trays. One to freeze and one to eat.009We have been working on finishing the bathroom in the basement for a while now, actually two years! Hubby is on the painting stage, then he will tile, and then my older son will do the plumbing. When Hubby was taking a break from painting I had him put this up in the kitchen.060I think it adds a bit of rustic charm to the kitchen and it’s handy too. We used to have a wooden hook for our bananas but it broke recently so I awoke this morning to find the bananas had a new home.

I love this locally roasted Godfather Espresso from Fratello Roasters. Hubby and I can’t live without our morning latté.009I can finally feel a bit of spring in the air so I spent some time and money reorganizing the pantry. So far only one of the shelves are finished. My mom says I may have too many things in there but I have to disagree. I use everything in there all the time!010See you next month!

    Love that pan rack and the copper gear it’s holding! It looks like you have a nice kitchen to play in!

    1. dishnthekitchen

      yes, it’s adequate except for my collapsing oven!

      1. foodisthebestshitever

        Hmmm. I’m guessing a collapsing oven is not something designed in Sweden for new age space saving?

        1. dishnthekitchen

          nope. remember…? The inner sides of my oven have warped so that the racks don’t fit so well. So when I put something really heavy on them, they collapse.
          We had this convo….LOL

          1. foodisthebestshitever

            Yeah I figured that. I just had an amusing new take on “the collapsing oven”… 🙂

            hey Grazza, shoot me an email through when you have time hey? I want to pick your brain.

          3. foodisthebestshitever

            I love brain picking! We are rocking the school canteen today but will send you an email when we’re home!

    2. Cecile

      I agree – I LOVE the pan rack !!!

  2. Foodisms of The Office Broccoli

    Oooh nice pot rack! I should have thought about that when I had my kitchen renoed.

    1. dishnthekitchen

      yes! I was worried it would clutter up the kitchen but I have a really high ceiling so it works.
      Are we still doing dumplings on the 23rd?

      1. Foodisms of The Office Broccoli

        Yup! I’ll send you an email later this week to organize.

  3. My Kitchen Witch

    Love the copper pots and the pan rack! A perfect solution for the bananas, by the way.

    1. dishnthekitchen

      Kids are definitely out of the box thinkers. BTW the first day we had the rack up I looked for my new spatula (the one in the souffle picture) for about half an hour. Then when I was having coffee at the table I just happened to look up and the kids had hung it up!

    Hi Bernice, happy birthday for February, the copper bowl looks like it would be great to mix in.
    The soufflé looks wonderful and there really is nothing better than a good coffee in the morning.
    thanks for showing us around your kitchen.
    cheers Jason

    Bernice, your kitchen looks so neat and organised! Love the copper bowl – what a magnificent gift! Btw, there are no format rules with IMK (other than the upload deadline and the link back) – I’m always posting things from the month before in the following post – I just put together a collection during the previous month of highlights to share on the 1st! 🙂

    1. dishnthekitchen

      You are?! I guess I made up my own rules then LOL. I’ll start collecting pictures ahead of time now 🙂

    I love your beautiful shiny copper bowl, my poor old thing is very very tarnished on the outside! The pot rack is a perfect place to display it! Nice to peek in your kitchen Bernice!

    1. dishnthekitchen

      yes, it is nice and shiny…I just polished it! We have lots of fun pulling faces in front of it 🙂
