The dark also makes me feel cold. Which explains why I was dressed for work today in this sturdy wool blend ensemble. The first sweater of autumn / winter 2011.

Then I had to turn the airconditioner on in the car.....
It was all for a good cause though, because my red themed outfit co-ordinated rather nicely with this little critter whom we all met at SSG Manor earlier this month.
That's right, MaltEaster bunnies are officially an It Food item. They were glowingly reviewed in this month's Australian Gourmet Traveller. As was the latest Nespresso machine called the Pixie because it's so tiny and comes in some amazingly bright colours. But that's another story I'm not really meant to go into at any point in the near future.

It's nice, every once in a while, to be ahead of the curve in culinary matters. It makes up for all the times that I'm not. As is the case for tonight's dinner. I'm going for tried, tested and simple.
We will be getting in that once a week dinner of fish with the steamed fish using a recipe from this month's Coles Magazine. Which is 'real world' cooking to AGT's 'high art and intensely worded recipes' approach. The fish will be served with some Mi Goreng because we haven't had noodles for carbs in a while at SSG Manor.
I don't feel so bad about building a weeknight dinner around instant noodles because look what's hitting the KFCs of our shores as of tomorrow. The KFC double down bunless burger for man-time. I didn't actually make that sentence up, it's part of KFC's advertising campaign.

This photo is from the American campaign, it's going to be called The Double in Australia. The burger was brought to Australia on the strength of a Facebook fan page, so the rumour goes. All the advertising is billing this as a 'teenage male' food yet I find myself strangely drawn to it, in theory at least. It's so wrong yet so right. Deep fried chicken fillets, cheese, bacon and mayo.
I was so tempted to pull up at one of the many KFCs that mark my drive home from work and shake down the store for a test burger. I was dressed in the team colours as well. I could have slipped into the kitchen and made my own. Unfortunately, duty called. I got my phone for work today and it is a Nokia and I had to learn how to use it. I had forgotten how user hostile they are. I don't know if I'll be able to revert to a non touch screen phone. It's a big ask.
