July! Summer is in full swing, though it hasn’t really felt that way. We have had a lot of rain and it hasn’t been very warm either. I hope that means we will have a long warm fall. Please gods let it mean that.
We did a little travelling, close to home these past couple of weekends, so I have a peek into my home kitchen and travel kitchen as well.
If you follow us on Instagram @cookswithevie you would have already seen some of what we have been up to. We have been eating a lot too!
Made lilac water, very fancy
Used up some of our chive blossoms to make chive blossom vinegar
This is Evie’s treat. She likes it straight up on tortilla chips. She doesn’t get that it is for putting on other food. Her aunt let her try it on a tortilla and now that is how she wants it, 😂
And a little walk rewarded us with some wild strawberries, so tiny and so sweet
Night #2 a marshmallow roast, we made s’mores
The first radish from the garden patch
If you like something, just order a case…I love this coffee
And found these beautiful dates, have a stock of those too. Awesome stuffed with almond butter.

I’ve just noticed that the badge for Sherry’s pickings is showing as code only on your post I think you have left off the last two lines of the code ;). Thanks for joining in IMK this month. Cheers
Hi Sherry, thanks for commenting. I have fixed the badge and it is now showing properly.
I love the lilac water. So pretty. Can you drink it or is it just for show? Your pizza looks tasty. What fun to grow your own veg. Those wee strawberries 🍓 are so cute too. Thanks for joining in this month and putting up the badge. Cheers!
You do drink the lilac water. It has a light floral scent and flavour. The strawberries are wild and are tiny but sweet, it is very exciting to find a few.
I haven’t made chive blossom vinegar, I certainly have enough blossoms. How do you use your vinegar? What wonderful radishes from your garden, my kids love picking carrots and radishes from our garden as well. Then eating them with dirt still on them!
We use the vinegar in salad dressings and vinaigrette.
