In My Kitchen – June 2017

This month I can truly say time flew by, I haven’t even posted anything since the last In My Kitchen post.  May was insanely busy with end of school year activities, field trips, helping with testing at school, promotion ceremonies and then just the usual craziness that is life.

Now I’m trying to adjust to our new summer schedule and will attempt to get better about posting.  Part of our schedule issues now are time to cook and photograph.  Many days we don’t get home until it’s time for a late lunch.  Then I’m lucky if I have time or energy to cook and get nice photos.  This month we have a dark theme for IMK, the only time I had to photograph was during a dark and dreary stormy day!  In the meantime here is an In My Kitchen post, I’m linking with Sherry over at Sherry’s Pickings for this monthly linkup.

Despite being insanely busy I did manage to still cook most meals and spend plenty of time in the kitchen.  First off we have my Mother’s Day gifts.  Josh went on a tray shopping binge, he knows me so well.  The first one has already been used often, it’s the ideal size for a cup of tea and snack or breakfast by myself.

In My Kitchen – April 2017

It was another busy month at our house so let’s just jump right in. I was home alone two weekends when the guys all went camping with the Cub Scouts. While the quiet was certainly enjoyable, all the cleaning and organizing wasn’t as fun. It needed to be done though and there was time to play as well.

One of those weekends I tackled our mountain of blood oranges. I zested most of them and made a large batch of arancello. It should be ready just in time for Mother’s Day! I then juiced the oranges and made a blood orange sangria. There was enough juice left to make some mocktails for the boys. The last of the blood oranges were made into a curd.
