Hopie's Kitchen in Blue

J'ai été taguée pour ce jeu par Paule du Moineau des mots, un blog nouveau de cet été qui traite de tout les sujets importants : de poésie, de photographie, de science fiction, de l'Evangile, des lesbiennes, et plus (mais, si !). Ce jeu en bleu m'a paru parfait pour un jour en plein décalage horaire quand cuisiner peut s'avérer dangereux (je me suis déjà brulée le poignée sur une poêle ce matin et ai décidé qu'un déjeuner froid était judicieux). Puisqu'ici je suis censée parler de bouffe, je vous livre sept choses bleues que j'ai trouvées dans ma cuisine !

I've been tagged in blue by Paule of Le Moineau des mots, a relatively new blog that I enjoy because it covers pretty much all of life's important subjects: poetry, photography, science fiction, the New Testament, lesbians, and sometimes all at once! She's just missing a couple recipes to make it perfect, but then I'm biased. So I'm supposed to find 7 blue objects in my house and I decided this was the perfect game to play on a terribly jetlagged day when cooking is dangerous (trust me, I already burned my wrist on breakfast and decided lunch had better be cold). Since I'm supposed to be talking about food here and not colors, I've decided to give you 7 blue things I found in my kitchen.

Mon bol le plus utile est bleu, et c'est parfait pour cette salade de quinoa blanc et rouge au basilic frais.
My most useful bowl is blue. I making almost all my salads in it like this Red and White Quinoa Salad with Fresh Basil.

S'il y a des pâtes et du sel à la maison (qu'importe la couleur), l'essentiel est là. En plus, c'est la base de recettes délicieuses comme cette Salade de pâtes au féta et oignons caramelisés.
If you have pasta and salt (of any color) in the house all is not lost for dinner, and they're the start to many good dishes like this Feta and Caramelized Onion Pasta Salad.


Une touche de bleu autour de vos crumbles aux fruits d'été ?
Touch of blue around a Summer Fruit Crumble anyone?

Quand j'en ai marre de cuisiner et que je veux sortir manger, je cerche dans le tiroir de cartes de restaurant ; j'en trouve quelques-unes de bleu.
When I'm sick of cooking and I want to eat out, I dig in the restaurant cards drawer. Only a couple are blue.


Ma boite Hershey's avec du thé de Bonthés et Accessoires est bleue. Ainsi que le déca de D. et sa tisane preférée.
The Hershey's tin that holds some Bonthés et Accessoires tea is blue. As is D's instant decaf and D's favorite herbal tea.


Sans compter la bouilloire !
Not to mention the kettle to boil the water in.


Bon d'accord, ce n'est pas ma cuisine, mais rien n'égale les bleus de l'océan et j'étais triste de les laisser.
Ok I lied. This isn't in my kitchen. But nothing equals ocean blues and I was sad to leave them behind.


Je veux bien savoir ce qu'il y a de bleu chez Nic, Sam, Lily, Cicero Sings, Camille, Tony, D.K et ceux qui se sentent inspirés.

I'd love to know what's blue in your kitchens/houses Nic, Sam, Lily, Cicero Sings, Camille, Tony, D.K. and anyone else who wants to!

Hmmm... I'll have to have a look around and see what I can find!

I started looking around my kitchen and realized just how many blue items I have as well. Maybe time for a blue post!

My bday is Sep. 8th. We're not that far apart!

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Have a great second part of week!

Cheers,

Rosa

Sam - Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Apples and Butter - Well you can consider yourself tagged if you like! It's a fun one. Oh, how exciting, your birthday's so close! Do you have plans yet (other than hinting for kitchen-related b'day gifts)?

Rosa - Thanks Rosa! You too!
