Garden Lunch, Wedding Etiquette and Kitchen Art

25 Mar

1   Such a beautiful warm day today, we had our lunch (home-made Guacamole and Melba toasts)  on the bench in the sun for the first time this year. Did some vertical gardening putting primroses into the Cornish wall near the new sun terrace.

2   Had a happy half hour with Daniel on Skype learning more about the quite complicated etiquette of a Senegalese Wedding.

3   I love this egg storage unit which to me is a piece of kitchen art. I think it is a Welsh spoon holder but it keeps our eggs perfectly!

      Thank you! I just made Nutella Meringues to use up the egg whites from the Jewel Cookies!

    I love your egg storage unit too – it IS a work of art. Yet my sister & me disagree about eggs – she believes they must be in the fridge. This piece obviously shows that isn’t so essential. Ah, three joys for today…

      Glad you like my egg-box as much as I do! 🙂
      My Mum always said eggs should be in the kitchen not the fridge! Then they are at room temperature for baking etc and the supermarket keeps them on the shelves not in the refrigerated units so I guess they are okay! 🙂
