Coctel De Camarones (Colombian-Style Shrimp Ceviche Cocktail) | Serious Eats : Recipes.

Got the shrimp last night.  Have everything else other than fresh parsley leaves which I “may” go out and get in a bit or may go with dried and rehydrated.  Could not find fresh shrimp so ended up with frozen.  Will put in fridge to thaw in a few.  Not sure if we’re having this for lunch or supper or both. 🙂

Build Your Own $20 Outdoor Cob Oven for Great Bread and Pizza | The Year of Mud: Building a cob house

(The following entry is all about making a cob oven. The construction details have been trimmed back a bit, but this article should still give you a full idea of materials and the building process for making your own inexpensive outdoor cob oven!)

Gonna have to get off the arse and make one! Got everything I need sitting out back right now. Like the bottles used as an insulating layer under the firebrick base.

Hump Day and Bread

May 6, 2009

And though early am about done if not done in. Been clearing up piles of stuff and sorting books and cd’s and assorted junk into their appropriate places. Cleared off a couple of shelves and moved them down a few notches to allow the larger volumes to stand upright and then started filling them up again.

Ripped a couple of music cd’s I found in the pile to iTunes. Downloaded and tried a media player (XMBC) that was highly touted in an article I read and then trashed it as on this machine (iBook) twas painfully slow and not intuitive to use. At all. YMMV.

Got a loaf of bread working in the bread machine. Trying the 1 1/2 – 2 loaf recipe, or that’s how I remember the stuff that goes in it.

1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 table spoons sugar
2 cups white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt

Never done it in a bread machine before but getting low on store bought bread and the freezer is full so figured I’d give it a shot. Will see in about 2 1/2 hours, or in the morning if I hit the sack before it’s done.

Think I’m gonna sit and read for a bit and maybe browse some then call it an early night. Till tomorrow… 😉
