this week in my kitchen :: blog hop

I’m playing along with Heather from Beauty That Moves sharing photos of our kitchen this week.

“A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.”

DSC_0187-smallMy not so fancy recipe book where the keepers and tested (and scored by my family!) are saved.  I like to keep all those scored 8, 9 and 10 (10 being the top of course!) for trying later.  Our do it again binder.  A fun family game.

Join in if you’d like.  Have a beautiful Thursday!

      Oh Tracey. They are really good. I think I’m getting down how much salt and oil to put. Now my daughter likes to bake them too.

      El te tiene hartas vitamina C y hartas otras cosas buenas. Si, hay que tener cuidado al tocar las plantas. Nosotros vamos a buscarlas en el bosque, pero usamos guantes y las ponemos con cuidado en las bolsas. Despues con cuidado puedes hacer el te. O lo que hacemos, es congelarlo, se pone en sopas, tortillas, etc. Tambien lo seco. Y ahi una vez seco, o al cocerlo, no pica mas. Pruebalo cuando vengas.

    You post a menu?! That is so inspiring. I am never so organized!

      Thank you. Yes, I painted our little door with chalk paint when I painted the kitchen 2 summers ago, and it has been used a lot. And for over a year now, I’ve been planning a menu for the week, and it is so helpful in so many ways. I recommend it! It was hard to get used to doing it, but the benefits… so good! I love it.

    What a yummy menu this week! Love the kale chips and the radishes 🙂 We’ve been eating lots of them fresh from our garden this week as well!

    I haven’t tried kale chips before but must have a go. It’s one of my favourite brassicas. I noticed a few people making nettle tea this week. I don’t think I’ve made the tea before but made some little nettle and blue cheese tarts this week. So that’s something else I must try. I’m learning so much from this blog hop.

      I know! It’s been really fun to look everyone’s making in their kitchen. Thanks for stopping by.

    Those kale chips keep coming back and now I desperately want to try them. But I’m afraid the season’s over here and they were already hard to find at the supermarket. Oh well, I might try to grow them myself then…

  10. heather April 18, 2014 / 4:25 am

    yes! nettle tea here too! 🙂

      Hi Heather. Yes, I saw your photo. We just picked some last weekend, so we have our supply hopefully to last us ’til next spring. I dried it and froze some. We’ll see if its enough.
      Thanks for coming to visit.

    Love it all, but your photo of radishes is particularly gorgeous!
