Shenanigans! (Day Zero)

There's outbreaks in North Queensland linked to sewerage somehow. I'm vaguing on the details but there's also a beach? I don't know if it's related, so don't go connecting any dots.

We've had a firkin WEEK of Day Zeroes and it's honestly shitting me off. There's like five different articles calling for all of Australia to "finish the job" and I bet that's going to involve locking up all the firkin Karen Squad.

So far:

  • It's a Student-Free day for Chaos
  • Mayhem has his diagnosis papers! Yay!
  • I have fed my sourdough starters and attempted making more of a pancake out of the goop [results further on]
  • QLD's PM is being heavily criticised for making sure ANYONE from an infection zone quarantines for a fortnight
  • I need to go shopping
  • Unfuckening happens TODAY

For the goop, I usually harvest about one cup of tired sourdough starter. To this, this morning, I added roughly a quarter cup each of Malaney Dairies cream (the BEST stuff), and coconut milk. The vegan milk that makes sense in a tropical climate. Ahem.

Stirred carefully because the bowl I had was dangerously full by then, and then poured into a heated frypan with some melted salted butter. I like to scatter mine with chopped olives but what you top yours with is up to you. It takes longer to cook the goopier it is. For this one, it took forty minutes to cook the bottom, and then the regular twenty to do the top.

I'm letting it rest in the pan as the pan cools down.

Later, I will extract it to a chopping board and cut it into niblet-sized quadrangles - I hesitate to call them "squares" because I have an eye like a rotten eel. They are very good munchables and alongside last night's "butter chicken" style prawns with riced cauliflower, I have me some gorging to do. Yum.

Just glancing at the news today makes me not wanna do today, but... there's a lotta gotta do it today. Le sigh.

At least I got one duck to march...
