It’s so long since I’ve participated with In My Kitchen. The last few months have been hectic – since my last post my family had another loss in my Grandma, also Mary Ann, who passed away on Easter Sunday, age 95. I finished and passed my CELTA course (yay!) and then started working and adjusting to life as an employee, after almost a year away from teaching, which was harder than I expected. I taught on and off for 4 months and I am now job hunting again. Once I finally adjusted to life as a teacher again, I got back in the kitchen and have been back at it a bit more consistently since the end of September. It’s been great but slow going.
First up in my kitchen is a bowl I made a couple of years ago that is currently housing our eggs. I did a wood turning class about 5 years ago and it was one of the most fun classes I have ever taken. If I get a job again, I’d like to go back in the Spring.
Then there is this beautiful bowl our parish’s assistant priest brought back as a gift when he returned home to Ethiopia. Aren’t the colours gorgeous?
For Hallowe’en, Monkey Nuts are really popular and we’ve a nice big bowl of them (also just figured out some new functions on my camera and this blur option was one. I love it!)
In my kitchen, or rather my bookcase, are some of my cookbooks. I have a few others than are scattered about the house due to some reorganising we are doing. Extending the Table is my favourite along with the McGuire Family Cookbook which is my Mom’s family’s recipes. Do you have a favourite cookbook?
I was house-sitting for my aunt while she and her husband travelled all over Asia: Japan, Shanghai and Duabi and these are the lovely presents she brought me back.
And that’s all folks. Please check out for the other entries in this month’s In My Kitchen posts at Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things and if you are interested in joining us, let her know.Thanks for hosting, Liz.
