The Art Of Nut Milking (via Know Ideas Media)

This short mockumentary seeks to promote discussion about the proper nomenclature for non-dairy products.
They ask people to contribute their opinions about the matter in the comments on youtube, but nothing could make read them.
I found the video itself very amusing.

Mmm…. Donuts

If you’re ever at Chadstone Shopping Center, check out Dashing Donuts.

The lemon meringue donut deserves close attention.

But there are plenty of other distractions.

They’re a one off, not a chain (presently). Which is just as well, really.

Kitchenaid KSM170

This has been a decade or so in the planning, and with the demise of its predecessor a Storm Black KSM170 Kitchenaid mixer has joined the household.

I won’t get to use it for a while though, because I’m back on the road tomorrow morning for a week.

Shared Lunch

You know I’ve been a bit restrained for the last twelve months.

If I break out, it’s for something worthwhile.

And with someone special. (Rachel, not Margaret, if you’re wondering, though)

Big Boy BBQ, Melbourne. Recommended.

My Exciting Life

These steel cut oats are part of my breakfast every day. Every day.

They inexplicably disappeared a month ago – space filled, product tag gone – but now they have returned.

This makes me feel good. This is my exciting life.
