The cherries I have been eagerly awaiting to ripen seem to be ready for picking, so tonight I had a shot at the first target.
Missing my kitchen 😦
It’s coming up to a year since we moved into the ‘new old house’ and I am really struggling with not having a kitchen. Not so much from an appliance point of view but I am going nuts not knowing where things are. Several different boxes in many different places and it’s frustrating the life out of me. With it being time to doing the Christmas Puddding and no stovetop to use I set up a gas burner in the laundry,
Mixed up the beautiful recipe of my mum’s (without raisins, thanks to bloody Coles). Which went into pudding bowls and
because our numbers are low for Christmas lunch this year I put some of the pudding mix into my Fowlers Vacola Pudding jars. Here the jars are sterilising in my majestic oven! All turned out well. While the puddings were bubbling away in the laundry I was caramelising some onions for an onion and goat cheese tart I was making the following day. This was happening in the lounge room on the camp cooker while watching a DVD.
Last of the garlic harvested.
Great crop of garlic this year. plenty for us and for using as gifts. Smells fabulous!

Very jealous of both your cherries and garlic (the kitchen issues not so much……). Both look wonderful and absolutely perfect.
Your garlic looks beautiful! I can just about smell it, too!! Well done on the clever solution to your pudding problem, too. 🙂
