In My Kitchen - The October edition hosted by Sherry. I'm scheduling this one in case the storm knocks out our power.
UPDATE: Today is October 11th and we are in a hotel. Had to evacuate our home because of Hurricane Michael. As it stands right now our county of residence is under a curfew so we can not return yet. Fortunately the hotel could give us an extra few nights. I am still posting this for Sherry's In My Kitchen and I sincerely hope to find these items below just where we left them! More later..........
Some of my favorites on the stove top. My much loved Le Creuset dutch oven that I bought in Destin Florida on a vacation. There is a shop dedicated to Le Creuset wares and I had a time looking through it all. Finally settled on this 5.5 quart red beauty. It's used quite a bit and I take very good care of it.
Behind it is a tea kettle our son bought us for Christmas one year. that gets quite a bit of use for tea in colder temps. The hot pad was crocheted by sister Linda back in 1993. It was our last visit prior to her death and she knew it, so she bought yarn and made me three of these hot pads. The other two have raveled badly but this one lives on!
Here is the pot getting action in prep for a Curtis Stone recipe - Brazilian Chicken.
Homemade sauce, pasta and wine makes good comfort food.
Weird little olive spoon made it's way into the house and can be handy for fishing an olive out of the jar. The olive picks are from World Market, little seahorse designs.
And here are the speared olives in a Tanqueray gin martini. My husband excels in the martini making. So cold and tasty.
Linking up with Sherry's Pickings for her In My Kitchen series and Beth Fish Reads for Weekend Cooking. I HOPE to get back with updates soon. We never did have good internet connection at home so while I am in a hotel I am taking advantage of it. But truth be told, I'd rather have spotty service and be home. Fingers crossed/
