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 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!

Bread success. I've been doing a bit of fiddling around and the Overnight White Bread recipe from Flour Water Salt Yeast with 25% whole wheat flour and the water bumped to 790mL is seriously delicious.

Well, the temperature might not be quite right (it's 20˚C outside), but I think two days of unceasing dark and raininess qualifies for good porridge weather.

I made bobotie tonight and it was delicious! It's a South African dish with beef mince, a whole BUNCH of different spices, and a grated apple, topped with egg.

We WERE going to go to Mamak tonight with friends but they had to bail, so instead we went to Coles and got pizza bases and made mini pizzas!

Our NYE plans involve home-made beef burgers (spoiler: they were delicious), and rewatching Mad Mad: Fury Road in its full 4K HDR Blu-ray glory!

And to round off the weekend of amazing home-cooked food, I made bread and had the leftover pulled pork from last night as a sandwich and it was gooooood.
