After some expert tuition from my Grandmother last weekend (while I was in London) I cooked up a rather tasty steak meal last night, complete with mushrooms, chips & salad etc. A top tip for other aspiring chiefs: try cooking the mushrooms in the oven with a little olive oil then transfer them to the frying pan with the steak for the last 5 or-so minutes of the process to let the juices infuse – very tasty!
For those Star Wars fans who don’t mind a few spoilers, check out this pretty comprehensive run-down of what we can expect from Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Although what’s written here is far from concrete I find it amazing that so much has leaked out at this early stage but I guess we all know where it’s headed anyway!
A few random links:
- Alaskan Alpine Club – Making some amazing artificial ice walls by pumping water up through pipes in the middle of the ice 24 hours per day. Really impressive stuff.
- Clearlooks – A new theme/style for Gnome. Now my desktop looks better than yours!
- BowGo Project – A new take on the classic pogo stick that bounces higher, farther and more efficiently than conventional devices. Looks lethal but very cool!
- How Safe Are We? – Has this advert gone to far? I wonder if this is really appropriate in the post 9/11 era. Maybe, maybe not.
