Sorry this is late, I'm trying to post these every Saturday, but Mum's been home on leave and so we've been having fun doing... housework :-( but also :-)
Recipe: Kaiserschmarrn at SBS
My good friend Jonathan cooked kaiserschmarrn a few times while I was living at Toad Hall in Canberra (yes that is its real name, no there are no badgers or rats... okay, there might be rats, but only if someone were to leave their uneaten lunch in their room...) and if he had cooked it every night I would have eaten it every night without any self control. Luckily, he didn't, and I didn't explode. Now I have this recipe... I can't look at it *the light, it burns us*.
Fashion: Vintage Sewing Books at Colette Patterns
This is such a great site. At first I thought I was simply signing up to a feed that would let me know when they post a new free pattern (like this one and this one), but I have been learning all about the different techniques used in dressmaking, properties of different fabrics, and famous and/or fabulous designers, both modern and retro. Do sign up if you think you might be even a little interested (money back refund upon request if you don't like it, promise!). PS: Damn I just found a whole bunch of craft blog links at the bottom of the page. There goes my afternoon/week.
Environment/Craft: Plarn at My Recycled Bags
What a great idea I had on the way home from the supermarket the other day - take plastic supermarket bags and crochet them to make strong reusable shopping bags and minimise the guilt of forgetting to bring my own bags now and then. Then I found out it had already been done and this technique is so much better than I had thought up. Still a great idea, just not original, and done better by someone else!
Science Fiction and Science: Science Future at Escape Pod
If you're not convinced about signing up for this podcast, this very short article should do it. If not the article, then the two very apropriate quotations bookending it. If you're still not convinced... then... I don't know, just do as I tell you, minions.
Food and Culture: Matariki at Foodlovers
As I write this there is still time to rock on up to this event if they're still taking registrations (and if you're not like me living across the other side of Auckland like a chump). Maori and Pacific Island food has always interested me, but I've never tried cooking any... Now, where do I buy puha?
