Aw yisssss, we just double-treated outselves today. We a) left the house, and b) did it so we could get Red Rooster for lunch. 👌🏻

BOOOOM! It could have been a bit more tender and a bit more moist, but goddamn, it was bloody delicious and for a first effort, I'm stoked.

Doing my first brisket today! I'm setting my expectations appropriately low because it's apparently one of the tricker ones to get right. We got a small 2kg one to start with because I don't want to fuck it up and have wasted like a hundred dollars worth of meat.

I made cut rounds again, but didn't bother trying to roll the dough into a cylinder and cut it and instead just ripped 60g chunks off, and they really rose up this time! I think I was just mushing them too much last time (they were totally flat). I guess they're just "rounds" now rather than "cut rounds". 😛

Aw yeah, we had a remote team event today, work-paid-for lunch ftw. I got "The Aussie" from Ribs & Burgers, it had egg, bacon, tomato, pineapple, beetroot, pickles, and onions (along with the beef patty, obviously). So good. 👌🏻

Aw yisssss, Lily and I made spaghetti bolognese tonight. Gave it a proper two-ish hours of simmering and it was excellent. And there's two serves left over too!

There's this British historian and TV presenter Ruth Goodman who's done a whole bunch of docos about life on farms during various periods in history. She did one series called "Edwardian Farm" and during it they made a thing called "cut rounds", basically like a savory scone. I found a recipe and made them, and while mine didn't rise much, they're REALLY yummy! The recipe I followed was this one: http://raspberryandchipotle.blogspot.com/2011/07/cut-rounds.html I'm not remotely a person who knows about baking so I don't know why they didn't rise (needs more baking powder maybe?), but they WERE nice and moist inside and not like hockey pucks!
