Ah, thank you dear people, for reminding me of simplicity in the kitchen!
Quite an adjustment, cooking for just one, in a small space.
Helpful, as always! Will get stuck into some of your soup suggestions as soon as a weather is a wee bit cooler. It's been hot as hell
over the past few weeks!
Like urs, I like your style!
Simple = easy = do-able, even when not in the mood to cook. I'm a garlic/olive oil/herbs person, too! Plus chilli, etc.! Luckily I have a fresh supply of bay leaves (in a big pot, that shifted with me. Also chives, parsley, sage, though sadly no fresh supply of thyme or marjoram YET!)
Thank you for reminding me of cous cous! Yum!
Risotto? Love it!
I used to have a crock pot, years ago. A great, big, clunky thing. So they now make little ones, for single people, do they? What a good idea! Apart from the wonders of delicious cooked shoe
, a small one would not take up less storage space in a small kitchen. Will search around & see what I can find. Thanks for the idea.
Hello, again! How are you?
Yes, summer in Oz is fruit time! Plums, grapes, apples, cantaloup, water melon, apricots ... yum! But I'm still eating bananas on toast for breakfast. (Think I'm addicted.) I like your idea of the bottomless fruit salad! AND a juicer sounds just the thing for the searing temperatures we've been enduring. Watermelon juice! Sounds SOOO refreshing, but I dare not buy ANY new gadgets of any sort. I'm having to "down size" my kitchen stuff to fit the space. Sad but true ..
Tell me, have you managed to buy a decent tomato this summer? I HATE these pretend ones! I could live on good, fresh tomatoes on crusty bread/toast, with a generous sprinkling of basil leaves, a drizzle of olive oil & salt & pepper. Yum! Summer heaven!
(p.s. ... It's FINALLY raining in Melbourne! Yippeeeee!
