Thank you for the homemade nut butter ideas on yesterday’s post – I’m on a mission to make loads of different sorts now!
But as far as today goes, I was glad to get home after work.
It’s always likely that, as a local journalist, I’m going to be busier at work on deadline days and that stories might fall through at the last minute but today I had not one but TWO front page articles evaporate before my eyes – one at about 4pm. I’m glad there were no children around to hear my language when the second one fell through… 🙂
But I found something else – and if the above is one of the worst bits of my jobs, stories like another one I wrote today are the opposite.
One of those temporary interactive speed signs had gone in and it was flashing this at everything that passed it:
88mph – how good is that?! The speed the DeLorean had to reach in Back to the Future to enable it to travel in time… I found a picture from the original poster and have asked the sub-editors to inset it into the above – I’m looking forward to seeing what that page looks like 🙂
I love quirky comedy stories, especially when I can write something like this:
“…But those drivers incapable of vanishing in a flash of blue light and a plasma implosion, leaving only twin fire trails behind them, were also baffled by the erroneous readings.
One said: ‘Great Scott’….”
It more than made up for the rubbish bits of the day 🙂
A coconut breakfast muffin.
10g coconut flour
20g other flour (I used GF brown blend)
1/2 banana, mashed to liquid
1tsp flax in 1tbsp warm water
2tbsp+ milk (depends how big your banana is – mine was small so I used about another tsp)
1tsp plain yoghurt (I used soya; don’t know if adding this made any difference!)
Heaped 1/4tsp baking powder, splash coconut/vanilla extract
Mix flax “egg” and set aside. Sieve the coconut flour into a greased microwavable bowl, then add everything else and mix well. Add enough milk for it to be a batter-like consistency and microwave for about three minutes. (My microwave’s budget and not digital so I turned the dial to about 3/4 power if that helps).
That was last night and this morning, I splashed a bit more milk on top so it didn’t dry out and reheated it in the microwave, plopped it on to a plate and plastered coconut butter and strawberry jam on the top…
The texture and taste of it – perrrrrfection!
I think the one downer of the day, however major it was at the time, was more than made up for by the good bits 🙂
What are the worst things about your job (or college/work/etc) – and what are the great things that make everything worth it?
