Probably a boot knowing my luck haha

Luderick, trevally, tailor, mullet, whiting, bream and Australian salmon are common catches near the jetties here in lakes
Should try the footbridge - eastern side, closer to the beach than the town, pippies or mussels - nice size king George whiting still about.

Mate invest in a microwave with a crisper function. It’s a life changer. Can reheat pizza, fish and chips, cook pies. All without making them soggy.
This sort of thing. Chips come out genuinely 90% as good. Pizza not soggy at all.


My wife has some kind of hippy obsession with not owning a microwave. She buys every other appliance on earth but I can't reheat my food quickly because of the way it takes away nutrients or some sh*t like that.

I’ve been craving a seafood night but have steered clear of the market during covid, today we went back and grabbed some and a few south Melbourne market dim sims for good measure. It’s a two day pig out, tonight we had mussels with garlic, shallots, parsley and white wine, oysters kilpatrick with coffin bay oysters, Mooloolaba king prawns with home made cocktail sauce and finished with flathead and king George whiting just simply done in the pan.

Tomorrow it’s calamari just deep fried in bread crumbs and scallops in the pan, the buggers are a nightmare in hot oil they spit and pop quite a bit. I just finished of the Pinot Grigio we used on the mussels and I feel like a snake that swallowed a donkey but that will keep everyone happy until Christmas.

I second this. My last three microwaves had the crisp/crisp+cook function, it's brilliant. Buy a bunch of your favourite pizzas on Tight Arse Tuesdays, freeze what you don't eat, then chuck them under the crisper for 5-8 minutes (from frozen!) and they are just as good if not better than the night you bought them. I use it the same as Ephemeral Hope , battered fish, most of the time chips come out better (when they still have some oil in them), pastries, ham n cheese, garlic bread, parmies... there's isn't much I haven't tried in there and it's just brilliant. From freezer to crisp in no time.

Cheers, happy with how it went considering it's the 2nd cake I've ever cooked solo.
Both my daughters completed their courses last month so we had a cake. One of them went to school with someone who makes wedding and special occasion cakes so that’s what we had. The girls took pictures, it looked fantastic then they served it up and it was a tasteless lousy affair. That sponge with fresh cream, jam and a nice icing is what my mum made and imo it’s about as nice as cake gets.

I don’t usually bake, I’ve made a few tea cakes and simple things but it‘s not really my thing. I think you get more of a chance to change things up cooking without it turning out a complete disaster.

That looks awesome.
If only i wasn't cooking for my daughter, she'd go into anaphylapsis just from looking at the picture.
