I know February is a short month but boy did it ever fly by in the blink of an eye! It’s already a few days into March and I still don’t believe it.
We had another busy month as usual, though I didn’t manage to capture much as far as photos go. Here’s what I’ve got in my kitchen this month….
My sweetie got me two gorgeous wooden bowls for Valentine’s Day. He know the way to my heart! The first is a huge antique bowl which currently holds all our blood oranges and cara cara oranges. It sits on the kitchen table which is currently covered with plastic and acting as a greenhouse with all our seedlings (hey, just keeping it real this month)!
He also got this handmade wooden bowl. It’s long and skinny and perfect for muffins, rolls and other goodies as well as fruit.
Speaking of the seedlings here they are. I “controlled” myself with just seven varieties of tomatoes! Then we have broccoli, several varieties of cauliflower, asian cabbage, brussels sprouts and so much more. We’re desperately hoping for a successful garden year, you just never know what will happen when you plant the garden.
With the kitchen table so crowded most meals are now at the breakfast bar or dining room table. It’s a small sacrifice to make for fresh veg later this summer!
So all those blood oranges in my new bowl, well we are all a bit addicted right now. I frequently peel two in the morning to pack in Sean’s lunch. Josh and I like to squeeze them into some sort of cocktail concoction. This blood orange ginger prosecco cocktail is my favorite, it celebrates the flavor of the juice and isn’t overly strong.
I also got this handmade book stand. It’s perfect for holding cookbooks open as well as my iPad. This is a cookbook that I used quite a bit last month for the Rainy Day Bites Cookbook Club, such great recipes!
Last month I featured my new heart rolling pin, I finally had some success with it for Valentine’s Day. I also used my alphabet stamps to make some conversation heart cookies.
That about sums up some of what’s in our kitchen. I’m linking up with Liz’s Good Things for this monthly party. Check out what is happening in kitchens across the world.
