About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Meme - Confessions in Groups of Five
I was reading one of my favourite Melbourne food bloggers, Haalo from Cook (almost) Anything at least once the other day when I noticed that she had been tagged by Kalyn from Kalyn's Kitchen to do a meme titled Confessions in groups of five. Hahaha I thought, missed me. No-one would want to know what's in my closet!

Well I'm not laughing anymore, Haalo tagged me.

5 items in the freezer

1. Mushrooms- they freeze really well, currently there are porcinis, chanterelles, saffron milk caps and slippery jacks, there might also be some morels somewhere.

2. Demi-glace- it takes so long to make that it's worth making extra.

3. Fish soup- see above.

4. Fish- I catch, I freeze.

5. Breaded things- we have a six year old so we keep chicken nuggets and fish fingers. I confess that sometimes I like fish fingers too.

5 items in my closet.

1. A coat hanger full of ties. I think I still have every one I have ever owned.

2. Hand knitted jumpers my wife made for me. Before the birth of our daughter.

3. A screen printed t-shirt from Tahiti, my wife claims it now.

4. The suit I got married in.

5. My old film SLR camera. Yeah, I know, Luddite.

5 items in my car.

1. Hessian bag from the wood yard.

2. Two pieces of angle iron, for securing jobs that I carry in the boot.

3. Leftover buttons from the button repair kit for the radio.

4. 30 year old Ray Bans. Even when a previous car was stolen and recovered, they were still there. Does that say something about my taste?

5. Box of tissues.

5 items in my wallet.

1. Tattslotto card. I wish, I wish.

2. Fishing license, never have been asked to produce it.

3. Vintage Cellars membership card. Hmm, what wine tonight?

4. Citilink card. I got on the other day and didn't see a traffic light between Sth Melbourne and Bendigo, an hour and a half away.

5. Not enough cash!

5 people to tag. (Only if you want to)

you, you, you, you and you.

That first paragraph had me rolling - just loved it!

At 10:49 am, Blogger neil said...

Yeah, they're good fun things to do. We get to find out a little more about ourselves.

At 3:11 pm, Blogger Reb said...

ok! accepting the challenge! Re the closet, item 2. What, she knits kids now?

At 4:03 pm, Blogger neil said...

Hi reb, will watch with interest! Not really, I was kinda alluding to the fact that after kids, life as you know it ceases.

At 12:49 pm, Blogger Angela said...

Hey! Thanks for the tag....my list is up now.

And thanks for the mushroom tip. I've never tried to freeze them for fear they would go all yucky on me.

At 3:08 pm, Blogger neil said...

Hey angela, nice list too. Know what you mean about the mushrooms, I was worried about the same thing as you the first time.

At 1:40 am, Blogger Kitchen Queen said...

Thanks for the tag, but someone beat you to it. Just to be thorough though, I'll take your bandwidth to add the 5 items in my freezer one (because being pushy is what we Yanks do, right? ;-). In my freezer right now.....butter, because the day I run out will be the end of life as I know it; a bottle of chocolate vodka; a variety of frozen meats; a variety of frozen juices; and a variety of frozen vegetables. Boring, I know.

At 10:43 am, Blogger neil said...

Hi kitchen queen, I think with a bottle of chocolate vodka in there, nothing could be boring!

At 11:16 pm, Blogger Kitchen Queen said...

Hubby says I'm less boring when I have some chocolate vodka in me!

At 7:22 am, Blogger neil said...

kitchen queen, alcohol has been the salvation of many a man ;-)
