I can’t believe it! February is flying by already and it is already the tenth of the month. I meant to get In My Kitchen done early this month but it just does not seem to happen for me. Sorry Celia, I hope I’m still on time. I’ve been watching the Olympic coverage a lot. I was just as proud to see those Aussies walk in as I was the Canadians and I wish them all the best. As of today we are in a three way medal tie for first place medal count. I’m so proud!
It’s been so cold lately that I am getting into the habit of having some fresh flowers on my counter at all times. They remind me that Spring is really just around the corner. Believe it or not those tulips are locally produced. There is a Dutch man growing them in his barn during the winter months. I buy them at the Calgary Farmer’s Market and they last for nearly a week because they are so fresh.
This is shaping up to be a busy week. I have so much to do before we go to New Orleans…yes, we’re heading down to the Big Easy in a couple of days to escape this nasty cold snap.
I really can’t wait! Of course I made a list of foods that I need to try while we are there. Char-grilled and Fresh Oysters , Muffaletta, Pecan Pie, Beignets, Turtle Soup, Jambalaya, Gumbo, Etouffe, Po’ Boys, and all sorts of crab and craw fish. I made some NOLA style BBQ Shrimp to get an idea of the flavours…
Huge thanks to Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for hosting this peek into kitchens around the world.
