In my kitchen… a garden is trying to grow. Allow me to rephrase that: I’m trying to grow a garden!
Since I’m not a green thumb by any stretch of the imagination (and I seriously underestimate the time it takes from planting to plate), I went to the local “feed & seed” store to get some plants that were a little further along in the nurturing process. Then the outside temperature dropped 60 degrees and I was forced to keep them alive indoors.
Once the weather warmed up again, everybody got their own special place on the “picnic table garden”…
… mostly because the actual garden was in sore need of weeding, pruning, and everything else I meant to do before I bought the plants.
In my kitchen (or close to it)… these obviously not homegrown herbs are nestled contentedly in their hanging baskets. They also seem to put up with frequent leaf stealing and dinner tastes all the better for it.
In my kitchen… are coconut sugar and coconut flour — my latest gluten-free “experimental” ingredients. I love coconut, therefore it stands to reason that I’ll love these, yes? (Or am I just nutty?)
In my kitchen… is my new favorite snack. Not only are these Cherry Almond Bars delicious, they’re benevolent. I like that in a snack.
In my kitchen… is a musical bouquet that’s been cheering me on as I do the final rehearsals for my concert tomorrow. They wish you a melodic Happy Mother’s Day!
In my kitchen… is one of the irises from my last post — and a curious one at that. Looks like it’s asking, “What’cha cookin’?” (Or what’s in your kitchen?!)
This world-wide hodgepodge of kitchen goodies is hostessed by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial — and it keeps growing!
(At least something is.)
