What did you last make? - pics required :)


Recommended Posts

Serrano Tabasco. Found an old matchbox seed give away from wahaca restaurant near waterloo, prob from around 2015. Gave them a whirl and got a massive Serrano chilli plant from the seeds.

About 5 ounces of red and green chillies (small selection pic below), so thought I would harvest them and make a Tabasco.  Thought it would last a while. But I have been putting it on nearly ever meal e.g. Huevos rancheros, roast dinners or just popping a teaspoon in for a buzz or a kick.

Must get a nicer looking bottle for the next batch. Also going to be trying out some Habernero's next.

Sewing face masks here 😷 50 and counting 😷

Finally finished our hallway

Bored at lunch so I made a very Heath Robinson mock up of an EK43s to test the waters on whether it will fit in the kitchen or if my wife would divorce me over it. Results so far are positive, in

Ker-shelf! (The sound Batman makes doing DIY)

Metal bracket is from an old bed frame, as is the plank of wood. Bit of beeswax, a bit of oil and a few screws = a bit more storage for odds and ends, and a happier wife in the process.

Made myself a mute/unmute button inside an emergency stop button. Hit it once to mute your microphone, and again to unmute.

Has a little esp32 arduino board inside that I had kicking around, and appears to my computer as a bluetooth keyboard. Pressing it just fires off the google meet mute shortcut. As it uses bluetooth it doesn't need to be plugged in if I can figure out a battery.

Makes sitting on hours of calls slightly more amusing!

Thought I'd try this again, given Tapatalk hates me.

Coffee area has moved from the corner to the space where the old boiler was until a couple of weeks ago, hence slap-dash paint on the wall behind.

Kitchen remains a work in progress

Couldn't bring myself to fork out for the OEM running boards and deck for our cargo bike and had some 12mm baltic birch ply kicking around so got busy with the routers, including a Katsu for the round-overs @Northern_Monkey 😁. Stop-blocks galore for the slots and copied the second running boards from the first with a guided flush cutter. Three coats of yacht varnish for weather-proofing.

Just want to say a big thank you for posting this recipe. I made some yesterday and presented one to my wife with a latte and she was blown away by how good they were. I only had 200g of almonds so the dough was a bit softer than I expect it should be and they came out slightly soft and chewy but I prefer them like that to the really crispy ones you traditionally get. Absolutely delicious.

Couple of other lockdown projects. At the very start of lockdown earlier in the year, we picked up some new hens. The old girls we already had refused to let them in the chicken house so I had to build a new one using only what I had in and around the barn as all the builders merchants and diy places were shut. It took a week or so of scavenging and cutting up various pallets and old wood that was stacked up here and there, and I was fortunate to have a couple of panels of stock board (recycled plastic panels) at the back of the barn but with all the bits together, I built this. It's not pretty but the new girls love it.

This lockdown I've done something similar to create some new compost heaps with a roof to stop the rain washing the goodness out. Again, not pretty but does the job.

Sunday dinner chilli-non-carne pie of lies (ready made pastry and no bottom. Made after I ran 14 miles, sorry not sorry). Quorn, mixed veg and bean with a lot more scotch bonnet than I intended! 😅 Thumbs are for scale, as it was huge!

Londinium wall frame(s) similar to six that I made, and gifted,  4 years ago. I believe some are still gracing the coffee corners of @coffeechap and @Thecatlinux and @working dog to name but three.

I'm hoping to raise much needed funds for Zoë's Place Baby Hospice by placing in their upcoming Charity Art Auction which starts tomorrow.

If any one is interested in bidding then by all means let me know and I will post a link.

*There could be added bonus items for successful CFUK bidder(s) !!

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry - just seen this (busy doing new business stuff since lockdown 1).  Mine is indeed still going strong Mr Hips and hangs in pride of place above my machine.  Its getting ready for some new piston seals if you could send me a set over.
