In My Kitchen

Prompted by Hotly Spiced I intended to join with Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for "In my Kitchen" for February but I missed the deadline ….. hey thought I would show you anyway. 
Limes waiting for dinner
Freshly picked garden figs waiting to be made into jam

Garden flowers waiting for a vase
Seeds waiting to be planted
Empties waiting to be placed in the recycle bin
Max waiting for attention
Waiting for the oils to make the kitchen smell good
Wooden utensils waiting for the oil to soak in

What's in your Kitchen? Leave me a link so I can have a look.

  1. All that waiting has just made me take a deep breath and relax. It is a nice moment of stillness in the day. Don't those figs look luscious tho! I hope you do get around to making the jam.

  2. What a shame you missed the deadline! I was a little late myself this month. I love the image of your dog. And the empties - we always have a few empties lying around here too. I must buy one of those aromatherapy things for my kitchen too. xx

    1. Oh I am so terrible with deadlines. There are always a few empties here and these two are a couple of beauties if you can get hold of them you won't be disappointed.

  3. Oh this is lovely. It's a shame that you missed the deadline...I always seem to miss them too...but I'm glad that you still decided to share your lovely photos with us. I love fresh figs...how lovely to be able to pick them fresh from the tree. Oh and the flowers too, the spring ones are started to peep through now...the hellebores and snow drops. The sun is shining brightly as I write this and the kitchen is full of rainbows from the little glass prism hanging on the window handle. Enjoy your lovely kitchen.

    1. Lets pray that your rain is coming to an end. Love your photos you show us and have great anticipation for a little cottage somewhere for you and your loved ones.

  4. I can't help being nosy, I just love looking at other peoples kitchens. I've never oiled my wooden spoons, what do you use and doesn't it make them sticky? I'm surprised to see you have a spurtle, I've only ever seen them in Scotland. GG

  5. I just used olive oil and it soaks right in! I am a great porridge maker, I love porridge in the winter, and could not go past this when I saw it in Scotland back in 2010 (see my post http://magnoliaverandah.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/porridge-plain-and-simple_20.html) I thought the spurtle was just a gimmick but it works a treat - the perfect utensil for getting into the rounds of the pot to scrape out that thick creamy porridge! I am very impressed you recognised it!

  6. I love this post alot, I think you might inspire me to do my own. Also I need a cookbook holder as last night while baking cookies I made my cookbook a buttery mess!

    1. Thank you for popping by. A cookbook holder is essential in my house - I can be such a messy cook and this one keeps it off the bench and mobile.

  7. Figs are my all time favorite fruit in the whole world.
    Beautiful dog you have.

    1. Figs straight from the tree (if you can beat the birds) nothing better. My Max is a very mischievous dog but gorgeous!
