In My Kitchen

Some people think I am really anal when it comes to my passion for green accessories in the kitchen. And I’m not even a Virgo. This month, it’s all very green in the vegetable garden (next month the reds will arrive). Rather than display these crops, I thought I might dust off some of my green kitchen babies as part of an IMK post ( my first).

I was walking down Sydney Road, Brunswick yesterday and found these lovely green colanders for a song. The large one- $3.00, the baby – $1.50. It was hard to resist all the other mad colours but I stuck with the green ones.

I  love that bargain shop so much! I always grab a few more little milk jars ( $1.00) to add to my collection. Good for herbs, flavoured oils, the odd flower, table place settings, irresistable.

This roll of string was bought at great expense from ebay. It lives on my kitchen shelf with its green friends and is largely used for tying up gifts wrapped in brown paper or newspaper, tying up tussy mussies or hanging oregano to dry.

I love my colllection of retro Hong Kong thermoses. The little green army came down from a high kitchen shelf today for a dust. I have used one for yoghurt making, but on the whole, they are decor items.  I am searching for one which has the TWO GOATS gold label, then my collection will be complete.Image

Above are two green marble bowls purchased last year in Yangon, Burma. Great for special salts.Image

I can’t live without a jar of Furikake. I have to resist eating it out of the jar. Nice sprinkled on poached eggs or fresh poached salmon salad, or steamed rice.

Finally we have my beautiful Fowler bowls in apple green, a retro Propert anodised sifter and a selection of green jugs.

These little green things enjoyed their moment in the limelight for an In My Kitchen post.
