So 200 runs later, you could say things are going pretty well. 😄
Before I go into the details about just how fantabulous this match has been, let’s talk about food.
No proper recipe for you guys today, just sharing a pickle I found myself in.
Yesterday I tried to make myself some good ol’ nutella. Now I could go into great detail documenting my tumultuous history with nutella, but I’ll save that for the day when I actually manage to get it right.
My main problem was with the nut part of the equation. While we did in fact possess hazelnuts, they were almost 2 months past the best before date… They seemed ok, and I wanted my nutella so I trimmed those nuts down to what seemed not foolish to consume and roasted and blended ’em for what turned out to be quite a gorgeous hazelnut paste. A little bit of coconut oil and cocoa powder and it looked like nutella. I then made the mistake of using honey instead of sugar. Not a great idea. Either way though, it seemed apparent at that point that the too-old-hazelnuts maybe weren’t going to taste wonderful in their roasted paste-y form regardless.
And so in a desperate attempt to not waste an entire cup of pretend nutella, I did what any reasonable person would do:
I made cookies.
At a 1:1 ratio with plain flour, an egg, vanilla and of course, half a cup of sugar to the rescue, my nutty situation was resolved.
More importantly though, this cookie production was concurrent with some stubborn tail-enders, a double century reached with a 6, and England dropping their 15th catch of the series.
It’s been a good day in the Fizzle HQ.
Question: Am I going to have to start explaining cricket terminology on here? I’m starting to realise just how weird it can be if you don’t understand…
