We have had a little fun in the kitchen recently.
I love trying out new recipes and our local fresh fruit and veg market has some amazing weekly specials.
I try to get down there and take advantage.
Recently I bought a pocket of onions and so it was time to make some onion marmalade!
It turned out really well and my eldest has decided I should produce it in bulk so he can eat jars at a time.
We jazzed up the "normal" cheese and tomato with fresh rocket and basil from the garden and dollops of onion marmalade!
Peppers were surprisingly inexpensive and I made some marinated pickled peppers.
They will be ready to try in a day or so.
We picked our first broccoli from the garden today,
and I hope to make a broccoli salad over the weekend.
We have been enjoying the abundance of fresh oranges : orange juice, orange cake (courtesy of my daughter), butternut and orange soup, and oranges for those in between times when the kids are
The kids harvested lemons at their Oma over the weekend and we have been eyeing out a number of lemon recipes to try. Besides pancakes with cinnamon sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice, my daughter baked an interesting lemon desert . It is a cake with a sticky and delicious lemon sauce underneath.
Perfect to end off a winter meal!
