Tuesday, February 5: As a challenge to myself I thought I’d give birthday pinwheels a go. They take two days to make and use yeast so the they’re far more involved than the recipes I usually try. Day one of the recipe involved dough mixing and sprinkles.
Wednesday, February 6: The colours in the sprinkles ran as soon as liquid touched them, but I quite like the way it turned the dough green. Day two involved rolling, buttering, sprinkling, rising, and then baking.
Thursday, February 7: Finally! The Mt Vic Chippery! I’ve been waiting for a fish & chip shop to open in Mt Vic since I moved here 10 years ago. The chips could be crunchier, but they’ve only been open a week or so so I won’t judge too harshly yet.
Sunday, Febraury 10: A working bee with snacks was held at our house. Some worked, some snacked, some worked and snacked. Kate & Jason made two amazing dips; I made a pretzel crunch and the birthday crumb from the Momofuku Milk cookbook; everything was delicious.
Monday, February 11: It’s Webstock week! After a few years of pining for what has been described as “the best conference in the world” I finally got the guts to had over $1000 for two days of inspiration and mingling. Registering early to pick up my beautiful swag definitely helped get the week off to a good start.
