It’s the beginning of June, which means that it’s Celia’s In My Kitchen time again. I have a few items that I’ve collected from my holiday in Hawaii whilst playing with my grandchildren, plus one unexpected purchase that’s my new toy. So, ready? Here we go!
Stones: My little pile of treasured stones and objects is growing. It now has a few pieces of coral that I collected on the beach in Hawaii.
Bowls: I’ve been searching for small, shallow wooden bowls to hold course salt and pepper for a long time. Like several years of looking. I found them at a street fair in Waikiki Market. I bought several to use on the table, too.
Ginger: Does anyone know how to root and grow ginger? Can I do it from this chunk?
Gaazooks-a-Microwave: And last but not least, my new lovely microwave-grill-convection oven. We went to the mall for a new watch battery, and ended up buying a new microwave oven. I also bought the watch battery. I’ve always wanted one of these, my mother-in-law has one, and now I do, too. I’m having great fun with it. Grilled cheese on sourdough this afternoon for a snack. It’s faster than the oven grill, and I love it. It makes Mr Misky’s oatmeal in the morning without a whimper also. And not only that – I get a free baking dish with it and a 200-page cookery book by mailing in a copy of my invoice with the redemption coupon. Woohoo! Oh, and it tells the time, which is handy when my watch battery goes dead again next year.
