The holidays are over and a new year is beginning. I like this transition and like to spend it quietly. There is also a transition in the IMK, now gathering at Maureen’s. I just saw her bread pudding made from banana bread and it looks amazing!
Here is a little peek into my kitchen since our last IMK post.
Leftovers of candied pecans, though we keep adding then atop salads so they will be all gone soon.
Three wines from Newfoundland
Some new small Kilner jars for small amounts of things needing keeping
chocolate pretzel bites, cookie dough truffles and spritz cookies
Royal Canadian Rum Salami. We just discovered this after my brother brought some over, it is very good.
This blend of whiskey and maple syrup is also very good, served just over ice. We tried it first last year on a trip to Mont Tremblant and liked it, then found it at the LCBO just a few days ago.
I have a few things under the tree that haven’t made it to the kitchen yet. I will save those for February. Now I have to get that tree taken down and all of those decorations packed up. Ugh!
