In my kitchen, there is me! We survived our incredibly long journey home (1.5 hours to get from Manhattan to JFK airport; 3 hours at the airport; 11 hours on a plane; 2 hours at Dubai airport; 10 hours on a plane; 1 hour to clear passport control, customs, and get ourselves to actually home) and are back in Australia in body, if not fully in mind.
|The last holiday photo, just before we disappeared through that A6 gate.|
In my kitchen, there is a Whole Foods bag I brought back with us. I filled it this morning when re-stocking on fruit and vegetables.
In my kitchen, there are also newly stocked dry legumes (chickpeas, lima / butter beans, black beans), nuts (raw almonds, pecans) and dried fruit (pears). Also some rice crackers and sriracha. I fell in love with sriracha while away - it burns in all the good ways.

In my kitchen, there are some new socks. I found them in the gift shop of the Tenement Museum in New York, although they have no relation to the museum itself. They are going to be my favourite socks, just as soon as they make it off the washing line.
In my kitchen, there are products brought back from America. The chocolate will be reviewed in due course (and there is some more that didn't make it into the photo!). The packet middle left contains graham crackers.
In my kitchen, there is this new-to-Australia chocolate peanut butter. It makes me feel better about not bringing back nut butters along with the above (I was worried about Western Australian customs restrictions). It's made by an Australian company and there's also a peanut-coconut version.
In my kitchen, there are these flowers from my parents garden. They welcomed us home (thanks Mum!).
In my kitchen, our scratch map came off the wall so we could scratch off the U.S. and Canada. This was a Christmas present a few years back and it makes travel to new countries even more fun than normal (whilst I'd been to North America before, our system with the map is to only scratch countries we've both been to). If we can only get to Russia and Antarctica, then we'll have scratched a good portion!
In my kitchen, there is washing waiting to be hung out...and so I am heading there now.
What's happening in your kitchen this month?
