Some tracks from the upcoming release of The Great Gatsby are available for listens via Spotify:
Facebook chat is the lowest form of communication. The only people who do it are your best friend from the third grade and your aunt. Sending smoke signals would be cooler.
Go-to playlist. Piles of folk/pop/dance/rock (I hate genres), that feels good and is perfect to read or work to.
Tasty variation on the standard roast vege fare. Substitute whatever you have - pumpkin, sweet potato, potatoes, garlic, shallots, spices etc. This is what I used in a dish for girlfriends here for Friday night potluck… Would be nice with pumpkin/sunflower seeds too.
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Combine the spices in a small bowl or cup.
Oil a large roasting dish, add the kumara, pumpkin, onion, and chickpeas, stir to coat lightly in oil.
Sprinkle 1/2 the spice mix over the veges, stir and then add the remaining spices. Stir to coat the vegetables in spices.
Bake in the oven, stirring every ten minutes and testing the kumara until it’s cooked - soft when tested with a skewer. I’d say at least 30-40 min.
Fiona had the most amazing raw, gluten/vegan raspberry and chocolate cake for her birthday last weekend. So good.
I’ve taken to slicing and freezing overripe/surplus bananas for smoothies. I find they make them super creamy even without any kind of milk, more so with milk. A thicker “smoothie” negates any ice cream craving, this recipe is better than ice cream. And the banana flavour is not very pronounced. Okay, getting on with it:
Chuck everything together and blend thoroughly. I like to use less milk so everything blends but is very thick, then eat it with a spoon.
It’s not hugely sweet, but the sweetness of the banana keeps the cocoa from being to bitter and the raspberries lend a tart deliciousness.
