I was actually planning on heading to the Kaunertal in Austria today, but it is soooo cold that I probably would have suffered frost damage on various body parts and decided to stay put.
As promised, here the pan that I won at the raffle yesterday:
It conveniently allows you to just flip over the pan to brown both sides of the pancake. I am curious about this as I have gotten relatively good at flippin’ flap jacks in a normal pan.
And this is the doughnut thingy (which I may try out this weekend):
While reading the instruction booklet, I came across this gem:
“Please do not keep canaries and other birds in the kitchen. Bird’s respiratory systems are sensitive to many fumes, including the fumes from extremely overheated nonstick pans.”
How’s that for an animal friendly tip? (Not that I would keep my bird in the kitchen – there’d be no more room for me).
I had completely forgotten that there is a holiday in Germany next week, so imagine my absolute DELIGHT when I heard on the radio this morning at 6.30 that Monday is a holiday, (Re-unification Day) and I’ve a three-day-weekend coming up!
Yes, yes, yes – YES!!!!!
Now if only our local radio station would call ME. They let their computer dial random phone numbers in Bavaria, and if the person on the other end answers the phone with the phrase “Hallo Antenne Bayern” they get 10.000 €. I have been patiently waiting and have changed the announcements on all three answering machines to include that greeting. They call a number every hour and 95% of all the persons who are called fail to answer the phone properly, despite the fact that they know about this give-away. Most of them weren’t expecting to be called from the radio station. Just imagine the frustration of being called and not answering properly 🙁
I mean, it isn’t difficult when you hear on the radio that they are about to call someone and your phone rings, to just give it a shot, is it?
And why does Juanes keep singing about his black shirt? What’s the deal on that?
