Fun Stuff: May 2006 Archives

I really should have done this last night when I saw it. May 16 is such a significant date in the life of Kazza...

20 years ago I . . . was in year 7 at high school

10 years ago I . . . was starting my first job at OzEmail

5 years ago I . . . was happy that my house settled. Five years ago yesterday in fact.

3 years ago I . . . was playing a lot with my new fish tanks and collecting space lego

1 year ago I . . . was reminiscing on other previous May 16ths

So far this year I . . . wonder what I've really acheived, and can't really think of anything

Yesterday I . . . had a bit of a blah day

Today I . . . tried to sleep in a little but didn't on account of being a morning person who can't sleep in

Tomorrow I will . . . go to work, watch some tv

In the next year I will . . . get long service leave

Garlic Cheese Mushrooms, with Potato Wedges, Peas and Corn

Garlic cheese mushrooms

Mix several cloves of crushed garlic with shavings of butter, then add chopped or grated parmesan cheese and shredded tasty cheese and a dash of mixed herbs. Dollop the mix into mushroom cups, and layer with a slice of parmesan cheese.

Slice a clean jacket potato into eights or tenths, spray with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

Grill mushrooms and potatoes until golden.

Heat some peas and corn.


Gosh it was yummy. Although perhaps better suited as a side dish, the mushrooms rocked by themselves. And perhaps the garlic wasn't as cooked as it should have been, so it was a little tangy. But all good :)

A meme from Woosang - "What does your bed look like?"

It's a great bed, and my first grown-up bed, after sleeping in my childhood single bed for ~25 years. It was actually a birthday present last year from me little brother and sister in law, whose first grown-up bed it had been when she was 16. And a bunch of linen including this lovely doona cover came with it - sweet as!

What does your bed look like? Leave a link in the comments :)
