This Week in My Kitchen - Blog Hop

I love food and I love cooking and I am having a lot of fun visiting all the lovely kitchens in this blog hop.

So, without further delay, here are some highlights from another week in my kitchen, which is always the busiest on weekends.

What I am working on

I have to admit, I am not good at taking breaks. So here it goes. I am trying to finish this blanket this week, but I ran out of the red yarn. I actually ran out of purple and green yarn as well, but there was so little left to do ( half a round and one round) with these two that I could substitute with the yellow. The red one however ran out in the middle of the square. Now I have to wait until I find another ball of it. I don't really want to order it online and pay shipping, but the only remaining 'craft' store in town does no longer carry this yarn and I am not sure if the big store will have it. I hope they do. Meanwhile I amuse myself with crocheting the squares together (while binge watching "Eureka").

Lunch for one.
 

A new batch of pickles, the first one is ready to move to the fridge.


Couscous with herbs, tomatoes and feta.


Sunday Lunch. I was sorting through my collected recipes and came across a 'Cuban-Style Chicken'. I tweaked the recipe a bit (I added garlic, hot sauce, cumin, a little orange juice and sugar to the beans, I also skipped the cilantro and kept the rice plain) and it turned out quite tasty.

From the Garden

I caught the tomato thief this morning, red eared so to say, but since he is just so stinkin' cute I did not even chase him away. One of the bunnies was making himself at home between the tomato buckets. And he just moved away a little bit when he saw me and then just sat and ignored me while I was lecturing him about not stealing my tomatoes. Reminds me of my cats. Anyway, my life does not depend on one tomato more or less but his just might, so he (and his family) is welcome to them.

Here are the things I picked recently.
