Food, meat 

Food, meat 

@shlee Thanks for the earworm, mate. Although my brain is trying to convert it into "SA roads" with reference to the shit-awful condition so many are in. (Especially round here.)


@n0tj05h So basically Ubuntu with Xfce instead of Gnome? (Only reason my Linux laptop is vanilla Ubuntu is that's what I run on my servers; I can take or leave Gnome, as it's occasional use only, mostly on Macs.)

Nice try, phishers.

Image 1 - stamppot on meat, image 2 - cheese on stamppot. Now in oven to brown.

Unrelated beef stock in the pressure cooker - that's for a future rindsroulade. Oh, and I strain the mince, so I can put some of the lamb fat in the stamppot, instead of dairy.

Dinner is a sort of shepherd's pie analogue, lamb and tomato on the bottom, seasoned with black pepper, allspice, ginger, a potato/carrot stamppot on top of that, and topped with Spanish goat cheese.

@JulzM Yo! Currently in sinus hell, and with a healing rib, but at least we've just had some rain.

@futzle @pelagikat @koosli Wow. Not having municipal refuse collection and ten (now nine 😢) dogs, I'd not considered the urban approach. Scoop into 20 litre buckets, two for the back, on for the front lawn - emptied into a bucket-wide 4m long by 2m deep trench until half-full, then get the Bobcat guy every year or so for the next one. It works, and satisfies my needs as an infrastructure nerd.

Sad stuff 

@koosli @pelagikat Really wish we had a Bunnings, heard so much about them. But, then again, possibly not - it could get expensive very quickly.

@koosli Actually reminds me that I really need a bag of ice lolly sticks in my materials supply. Could have done with some when I was designing my finger splint. (Tendon rupture)
