Short walks…

I’m only supposed to be doing short walks – fortunately there are a few cafes in our area a short walk away. I’ve been wanting to come to Carolina for a while – walked up here Monday to find they were closed. Might have to come back again soon for dinner. The sun in the sheltered courtyard is beautiful!

Big dog!

Someone had just left their boot up with the dog in the back at the South Melbourne Market. He wasn’t even tied down! I guess not many people would want to steal him… He was there for over an hour on his own…

Black cow – great dinner!

Brownie!!

A while ago I read about the microwave brownie in a mug, but then promptly forgot about it. Tonight, desperate for something other than toast or chocolate for dessert, it came back to me.

There are a lot of recipes out there, such as:

  • this one, which would be huge, and almost require a soup bowl
  • this one, which is very fancy pants

someone has even set up a tumblr blog on microwave brownies.

I went with this one largely because it was half the size, and it used vegetable oil – I couldn’t be bothered dealing with butter. It was almost 10pm after all.

So in the end it turned out pretty well. I decided to use my special bike mug, as it’s the largest one we’ve got.

We don’t have cooking salt, and a grind of the rock salt didn’t seem to break down too well – this wasn’t unpleasant, but I might almost leave out the cooking salt next time. I also cooked it for 1 minute and 30 seconds, and while I think it would have been fine if i’d eaten it quickly straight out of the microwave, I think it kept cooking as the mug was so hot, so by the time I’d finished it, it was pretty dry at the bottom – still tasty though.

I could also have obviously put a spoonful of icecream to cool it down and moisten it up, but didn’t feel like it.
