A few recent photos with Sakino and Islay, a few featuring our friends’ three month old son Tomo. It’s nice to be able to meet people and do things again, hopefully this will be a more regular occurrence from now on.
I’ll have to wait for a few more days before conditioning is complete but this is my first cold-crashed beer and I am very impressed with its clarity.
Hit my pizza-making ‘A’ game today, no issues with the dough and by far my best effort so far.
New brewing kitchen setup.
It occurred to me today that I hadn’t had a baked 🥔 for a very long time and set out to fix that..
Baked potato and homemade baked beans, a ginger glazed Scottish flat mushroom and some grilled asparagus.. It was pretty tasty!
Yesterday, for the first time in many years, I took a whole one hour for lunch break and, again for the first time in many years, my newly re-wheeled bike out for a ride.
Naturally, once home I looked for a free and open source fitness tracker in order to record my progress.. on the advice of a friend in the designers, I found FitoTrack and it is perfect for my needs.
Today, despite the stormy winds, I went out for a second bike ride and refined my circuit. Don’t judge me, I am very unfit and this is the start of my journey back to fitness! Anyway, I hope to build up to two then three circuits in a lunch hour but for now one is enough of a challenge.
Photos of today’s cooking efforts
A Scotch broth like soup, maybe the best I’ve made so far (imho)
Chilli, salsa, guacamole (with whole coriander leafs because someone - me - forgot to chop them) and nachos with way too little chilli or cheese (alternative).
All #vegan and all delicious!
Eating this whilst thinking about my friend in Hidaka-mura who would almost certainly make a version that would put these to shame!
Yesterday’s cooking efforts, #vegan lasagne, just as tasty today!
To the Shaft theme tune:
Who is a guy who dislikes xmas but loves cooking for any occasion? this guy! you’re damn right
Who is a guy who makes pigs in blankets, without pigs but better than just blankets? This guy’s wife! not a guy
(Tune bit which inconveniently splits the lines)
Who is a guy who most likely doesn’t remember the theme tune to Shaft! This guy? you’re almost certainly right!
“Giant sausage roll” - chestnut mushroom and nut roast with cranberry, cinnamon and nutmeg flavours in pastry
