adventures in domestic design
Down boy! What's this bread up to? (And no, I won't aplogize, all you politically-correct-in-the-kitchen, for using the evil bread maker. Since I'm too lazy to bake it the right way, it's this or store bought, and store bought doesn't wake you up in the morning with that indescribable aroma. Besides, it was a present.)
And speaking of evil, isn't this the wickedest knife ever? We found it at IKEA and it turned out to be the perfect solution for dealing with the tall, weirdly-shaped loaves that come out of the appliance-that-shall-not-be named ... and adolescent boys.
You think this is just another portable barbeque, right? Think again! A couple of weekends ago we were at a fund-raising pub night for our junior Australian football league and there was this barbeque up for silent auction. We'd never heard of the Woodflame Grill before but had lived without a barbeque for two years, ever since our last hand-me-down packed it in. $65 later and we took this $300 beauty home. It's fueled by a two-inch hardwood cube. In two minutes the grill reaches 1200 °F / 62,000 btu's. The food tastes better than gas or charcoal BBQs and best of all, it's clean burning.
