I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.


I am having a delicious beer. It's called Oat and a Boat

Twitter is being particularly twitter today.

Update: having over friends was absolutely wonderful. I made palak paneer and also a mushroom and chickpea curry (they're vego, we're not but don't eat much meat so I have plenty of vego recipe faves) there was wine and gin and talking bullshit and it was magnificent.

I'm having some friends over shortly in what feels like the highlight of 2020

If I actually have the bother to do meal prep tomorrow we could have the week sorted.

Wife took care of dinner (I'm overwhelmingly the cook) so I put on a slow cooker of beef rendang for tomorrow and the day after and this is living.

I'm not sure I've been so happy in a long while when I saw her go basically cross-eyed when she bit into it.

But I got there. When she got home I served her a pizza with her favourite toppings, and it was piping hot and exactly the way she liked it, and she was so stoked.

So I had a really nice evening yesterday, I made a pizza. My wife really likes Crust peri peri chicken but the crust near us blows chunks and it always arrives late, cold, and with half the customisations missing, so I figured I'd do it myself properly. It's a bit involved to recreate their pizza, I had to poach a chicken breast and finely slice it, caramelise a brown onion I'd finally sliced, made dough, the whole thing.

The cat has her old food back and is purring loudly. We will never again try to "change things"
