      Thanks Anna… I don’t think I am going to be able to go back to normal garlic ever again! 🙁 Liz x

    I’m loving the sound of that macadamia oil with smoked garlic and lemon myrtle – yumm! How good is horseradish! I haven’t tried fresh yet but I’m looking forward to the day I find some 🙂 May your 3 black chooks bring you lots of lovey different sized eggs. Keep us posted and thank you for sharing IMK

    Love that Italian plate, great find! Horseradish can get out of control if allowed to spread so just be mindful. It is a really great crop to have in the garden. I, unfortunately forgot to dig up a root when we moved 18 months ago and might even knock on the door and ask if I can scrounge some. Chooks look great too.

    I love your chooks! I had black Australorps and I miss them so much. I wish I had room here for chickens.

    I love op shopping for props and then I get home and struggle with where to put them.

    Great IMK post!

    Yaay, new chooks! Liz, every time I read your IMK posts, I think of the first one where you told us you had this tiny space, and then each month I think to myself, “where on earth does she put all these new things?” I’d love to know your storage magic! 🙂 I do think your big plate is a great buy though – it will be useful for all sorts of things. And I wish I could offer advice on horseradish – the one time we tried to plant it, something ate it – root and all. One morning, it was just gone! 🙂

      Awww Celia… that is so lovely of you to say!!! I don’t have any magic storage space… I was just complaining last night that I have no were to put anything. Fortunately, most of my stuff is perishable and gets eaten! LOL! but yes Storage is a huge problem for me…. I now have plates and bowls in my bedroom cupboard as there is no where else… but really who needs clothes, when I can have a nice new plate! The horseradish is an issue…. I will have to do lots of research! Liz x

    Not being a fan of parsnips, I’d like to think the smoked garlic would help it out but I’m dubious… The smoked garlic though, sounds delish! Where did you get it? I love macadamia oil for dipping with dukkah. It has a milder, nuttier flavour than olive oil, that can be a bit heavy. In fact, we often have the oil with lemon myrtle rainforest vinegar so lemon myrtle in the oil itself would be perfect. cheers xx

      Hi Fiona. I got the smoked garlic from my local delicatessen, it is the first time they have had it, so I was very happy. I am just loving my infused Oil… normal I’m not a fan as I’m a bit of a purest when it comes to oil, but I’m very please with this one as it is just oil and lemon myrtle and nothing else! Thanks for stopping by! Liz x

    Chickens! I keep trying to tell my husband we need some, but he is very protective of his lawn. I’m not one to get between a man and the garden if he wants to be proactive! 🙂

    I love that large platter, it was a definite must have. Thanks for the peek!

    How exciting, Liz, to have those chickens! I love smoked garlic; it gives great flavour to steak or mashed potato. How fortunate to find fresh horseradish! How wonderful to have all those fresh snow peas – they look amazing xx
