Naturally my Canberra Times exposure yesterday will have caused me to catapult to fame, fortune, stardom and all that. I'm waiting for my book contract now, and the movie deals. I would like my role to be played by Cate Blanchett, thank you. Katherine Hepburn would have been even more ideal but she's sadly a bit dead. Diana Rigg would also be a good choice. Any minute now, right?
So hi and welcome to any new readers. As you can see from the archives, I've been doing this a while, mostly for my own amusement and my friends. I'm also trying to create a bit of a resource for my fellow Canberra region cooking enthusiasts. I am not the Canberra Cook; I write a blog titled The Canberra Cook.
There's an index of reviews and recipes down the left of the page somewhere. And a set of tags for topics. My alphabet series has stalled at M, but I promise to get back to it soon.
In my local news:
* The little fig tree has grown up enough to produce a modest crop. It's very nicely ripening 3-4 fruit a day. Just enough for me to eat for breakfast.
* The rosemary needs a big trim to get it off the pathway. Does anyone want some? Or have any suggestions for using up a lot of it, rather than just chucking the trimmings in the compost?
* And my pantry has gone. The bathroom renovation plans met reality on Tuesday; and reality won. All the pantry contents are now piled into a few boxes, three of which are the actually the containers from the worm farm that I failed to get going three times. They're all over the kitchen floor and bench.
So I'm going to be living without a pantry now until we get some kitchen updates done. Could be months, or even a couple of years. I hope not that long, but I haven't had a bath for seven years now, so who knows? We plan to get some make-do shelving into the laundry on the weekend, so stuff will get off the floor. Meanwhile I suppose I can chuck out all the outdated stuff that got lost up the back of the shelves.
