THIS WEEK IN MY KITCHEN 16 ::




I feel as though I'm short changing you this week. The whole point of heather's meme in her words, is to:

 "post photos taken in your kitchen throughout the week." 

she goes on to say that:

"Words aren't necessary, your photos will tell the the story"

But I only have three, to post this week. So not much to tell. 

It began well with the pink roses on the kitchen counter top and H's birthday cake that she cut into early, so that we could celebrate with her boyfriend, who was also home from uni.  I kidded myself that it was part of a balanced menu. Shop bought  naughty sweetly fondant covered cake plus fresh berries and cherries. Surely the fruit would balance out all that  sugar?

Then there was the early morning snap of the kitchen before things got too untidy. But that's when my previously successful attempts to mend the camera with Sellotape failed and the whole thing seized up completely. 

So I couldn't share images of the newly picked potatoes and garlic that A gathered from the school garden, the roasted vegetable couscous or the Persian, lamb and herb stew. 

'A' has kindly offered to buy a new one on his way home from work, so hopefully next week there will be more to share. We're visiting the new house at the weekend so there maybe even be a few of that one too.

I'm joining with heather again for this week in my kitchen and it would be lovely if you would come too?

  2. Your kitchen is so pretty! And of course the cake was healty, with all these fruits ;-)
    My camera broke some time ago and now I take photos with my phone... I know that it's not the same thing but it is always by hand and so I take even more photos than before, even if they are poorer in quality. For top photos, my husband has a nikon reflex that he uses also for his photoreporter work, but I'm not able to use it!!! Happy weekend ^_^

    1. Thanks Anke. We are having great sunshine lately so it's lovely to have the doors and windows open onto the garden all the time. It's been sorted thanks to my kind husband.
      Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I still loved each photo, Deb.. I had to buy a new camera a couple of weeks ago because of the battery thing, too.. This camera says it needs certain type of batteries so I am going to try it and see if it lasts longer... Birthday cake is only once a year, right|? grin..
    Oh, unless there are more than 1 person per family...grin.. xoxoo
    So looking forward to the new kitchen photos...

    1. I know I was lost without it Karen but Ahmad sweetly bought me a new one. He even got the lead for downloading images so I won't be constantly removing the memory stick which is what I think caused the initial problem.I'm all good to go again.
