    Nope, it’s a company called Cake Box. They make egg free cakes. I think this one was 700 calories a slice.

    Corned Beef hash for tea tonight,m y first time eating it since a kid. It was more of a treat for us, as well as introducing the kids to it. Obviously the gravy was made from Oxos, to get that full affect ;)

    I concur wrt to use of OXO , usually use HP, or, do you mean the choice cuts of meat ?
    (Not sure the Brazilians have that much poorer standard versus the lososing/lost credibilty rad tractor scheme.)

    OXO is going to detract from fried onions and nice flavour of corned beef.
    It is a 2nd comfort food after Macn' ? albeit the USA did not catch on ?

    Marmite is glorious. So misunderstood.

    Breakfast at Tim Horton's. Usually go for one double sausage and egg muffin. But today I felt like having two. Tasty! :D

    Went to Wagamama's for lunch. The Shirodashi ramen was not bad. The pork and the egg was nice. The broth was decent, although I'm not really a big ramen eater, so I don't have a lot to compare it to. The noodles were kinda bland though. Maybe it was the big breakfast, but I couldn't bring myself to finish this. And I wouldn't rush to have it again.

    Also got a side of panko steamed buns. Love these! :D

    Why did they put ketchup and mayo in that bun?

    Its Sriracha, not ketchup. As to why, no idea? Added flavour I guess.

    Probably the most accomplished posture of a brownie and a coffee to grave the forum.

    I saw some of @famas's macro photography (more please) ... so could be scope for gratuitous revealing of crumb structure, or crema ?
    had googled 'Tokina 100mm AT-X pro.' thinking ... i want one of those.

    Ah I see. Yeah solely use my smart phone these days.

    Found my flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/dan-porrett/page1

    Been a while since i looked at that!

    If I remember right it depends how the image was saved to whether it retains the camera information.
    Think I stripped most of them on my older pictures.

    Lunch once again at Six by Nico. The newest theme: Sicily, taking inspiration from chef Nico's Italian roots. Was good :D

    I loved the slow cooked aubergine. The seared tuna and ox cheek ragu were also really nice. The pork & Italian sausage were good too, though I wasn't really impressed by the orange & pistachio dressing it came with.
