Home made muesli makes a regular appearance in my kitchen. I like to use organic rolled oats gently roasted in locally sourced honey. To the oats I add almonds, good quality dried fruit, mixed seeds and some shredded coconut. Served with natural yoghurt this is my favourite breakfast.
Recently I have found myself making more slices than usual. Depending on the recipe they can be quicker to bake than cakes, I find them easier to cut and they travel and freeze well. This Banana Slice from the CWA Classics cookbook was particularly moist and delicious. If anyone is interested in the recipe please let me know and I will post it.
I almost squealed with delight when I recently spotted these Queen B candles at my friend’s shop Thom, Dick and Harry’s. Terese is always bringing beautiful things into our country town that we would otherwise have to buy online or wait until we travel to the city.
A plate of homemade hummus made for my daughters recent birthday afternoon tea. I harvested my first piece of garlic especially for this occasion. The cloves are not yet fully formed but they still gave the hummus that essential garlic kick.
A bunch of sweet peas from my garden. I am asking myself why I have not grown these before. They were so easy to grow and the sweetly scented flowers fill my heart with joy!
Sourdough balls waiting to be rolled out into pizza bases for a big family pizza gathering. More on that later.
My brother grew an enormous pumpkin and my friend Sarah was then inspired to paint it. How special to be given a piece of art created by a friend.
I know many people in the blogging world are reading this book by Rohan Anderson. For anyone who is interested in real food, good living and self sufficiency you will love this book. Whole Larder Love is full of practical advice and beautiful photos. It is also very funny in parts.
