That's not your BBQ! Dropped into a mates house for tea, put on some steaks with mushrooms and onion.

Creamy pumpkin soup from scratch. Roasted some seasoned pumpkins slowly until the tips of the pieces were jut browned. Browned some onions in the pot and added some stock, water and the roasted pumpkins. Turned out super good.

Had a bit of a BBQ today. 2Kg of proper butcher's snags. Half are beef. The other half are pork and apple. They were amazing. Miles ahead of anything you get in the big supermarkets.

I bought a pack of 4 10W Kogan RGBW lamps on special. They work out to about $12.50 AUD each, at that price I decided I'd sacrifice one to see  what the controller was and how hackable they were. Turns out they are actually an OEM Tuya globe. Even better news is they use a TYWE3L wifi module which is actually an ESP8266. This means I can flash them with custom firmware.

Ham hock soup from scratch with herb and garlic chibata bread. Turned out spectacularly. Started from scratch with mirepoix (carrots, onions, celery diced) and some stock. Ham came off the bone nicely.

Left over schnitzel and burger buns? I threw this together for brunch. Light toast on the buns (buttered). Spread some caramelized onion and hot english mustard on the bun. Added bacon and baby spinach leaves. So good.

This is my shortcut chicken katsu curry. It uses some pre-made chicken schnitzels, but the curry was from scratch (including the roux). Delicious.
