Every month, Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial hosts the very popular “In My Kitchen”. Friends around the world join in to share a few items that make their kitchens fun and interesting. To join in the fun, pop over to Celia’s blog and follow what others say about their kitchens.
In My Kitchen this month is the return of hot, home-made soup. This is such an easy soup to throw together at the last minute. Chicken broth, a hint of tomato (either from a tin or freshly chopped or even from paste), sautéed chili peppers, onion and garlic, and a handful of cooked mini tortellini in each bowl. Spoon the broth over the pasta, your choice of filling but we like the spinach and cheese, and then garnish with freshly chopped chives, which are still growing like weeds in the garden. Bon appetite!
And speaking of soup, In My Kitchen are Pepperidge Farm Gold Fish. What fun! I love a sunny-colour, smiling fishy cracker floating in my home-made creamy tomato soup. These are cheese flavoured. Great fun to see one floating in a bowl. Childhood memories…
And then here’s a real find that I’m really excited about. I haven’t seen this in our local supermarket for years. It’s magic. Truly. In My Kitchen is Anchovy Sauce! Add it to home-made salad dressing, perfect for fish pie as it kicks the flavour up a notch, brilliant on scrambled eggs, surprising in gravy and rich brown sauces. If you’ve never tried Anchovy Sauce, look for it in your supermarket. It’s very handy for adding flavour.
And finally In My Kitchen is the proof that autumn is here. Clementine oranges are in the supermarket produce section again. I love them. No seeds, peel easily, tart and wonderful.
So that’s what’s in my kitchen this month. What’s in your kitchen?
