Shiny Weekend

Mutterings continued.

The pies and Yorkshire puds I cooked for dinnner last night turned out rather well. I used sandwich steak which turned out to be very tender and tasty. Simple recipe with steak, onions, mushrooms, carrots, ale, beef stock, thyme and bay leaf and puff pastry. Rob cooked a really nice spicy plum pudding dessert with custard.

The night's viewing consisted of Space:1999 (complete with expendible guest star of the week. It was also the penultimate episode of series 1); Kolchak (in which a headless bikie on a BSA wreaked havoc); Randall and Hopkirk (Revenge of the Bog People, which featured a lovely piece of surrealism with Tom Baker as Wyvern. He was ice fishing in his study and pulled out a white rose; he put it to his nose and said, "Aaah! Haddock!"); and a really dire Hercules movies given the MYSTIE treatment, which made it a lot better.

And today was spent visiting Gosnells markets for vegies, incense, perfume oils (Spiritual Sky's Aphrodisia! They're finally making the original scent that I used to wear in the 80s. Hurrah!) and assisting with Cosi auditions at the Dolphin. There was an open day at UWA and perplexed kids and parents kept wandering into the Dolphin looking for the toilets or the music department. We kept having to stop them wandering into the theatre and disrupting the auditions.
