In my kitchen this month was a collection of odds and ends.
Often there has been washing. July has been so cold, grey and wintry, we have been using the heater to finish the drying.
But also there have been jonquils and daffodils to brighten our days.
In my kitchen there was mess created because we have a new caravan. That meant taking all the things out of the old one before putting them in the new. Of course it happened in my kitchen!
However, there has been some food in my kitchen! These brownies were given to us by a wonderful man in Sydney. His cafe, Twenty8Acres was right next door to the apartments we stayed in, and the delicious food drew us back a few times. Good coffee too. On our last visit — breakfast before the plane home — I told him that it was my Mum’s birthday. His response was to say “You can’t have a birthday without cake!” and wrapped up three brownies for us to take away. How sweet was that, and they were sinfully luscious!
But I did cook a cake for Mum’s birthday lunch. I was impressed with my fancy decoration! The slightly burnt edges were a cunning way of keeping the lemon syrup from running down the side of the cake. 😉
Here’s the recipe. It was so simple I may even be able to remember the recipe for next time.
In my kitchen there has been proper food too. 🙂 I cooked goat for the first time, slowly and in lots of extra liquid.
