in the still of the night...

new haircut ahoy, Friday I ventured into town to have some snacks at worldsend with Nicki and Tanya... then Sharon also was there, then Nic was also there to give me hugs and then half the people i know took over the pool table and giggled and drank...

yes.... on to Rhino with Tansy to shake some butt...
found a couple of the animation kids hiding in the corner...

er, yeh, then i lost my mind and my eyes became glazed, all i needed was sleep...

saturday my neighbours and i made pumpkin gnocchi... worked very well... here's how to make it!!

PUMPKIN GNOCCHI (Shaggy Shaz's recipe with my mods...)
750g Pumpkin or Potato
3 Cups Plain Flour
1 egg yolk

Boil the pumpkin til soft and mash up. Cook on stove top for a further five minutes adding a little more butter (emphasis on little) til it goes a little dry.
Mix in Flour and Egg Yolk til you can knead into a dough.
Pull apart and create about tennis ball size balls of dough.
Roll out into a long sausage no more than 3cm wide (remember it puffs up).
Cut into small pieces, stab a fork mark in the top...
Dust with flour so they don't stick together.
Pop into boiling hot water.... they will take about 2 minutes to cook so have your sauce ready!! You'll know its done as they float to the surface when they are ready... you can scoup them out and serve straight away.

THE WHITE MUSTARD SAUCE... pretty much the same as tuna mornay white sauce really...
30g butter
3 tsp plain flour
1/2 L milk
3/4 Cup grated cheese
1 tsp seeded mustard

melt butter, take off heat and mix in the plain flour. You should have a yellowy paste. Return saucepan to heat and gradually add milk. Use a whisk to thicken... once thick add your cheese in and stir through. then add seeded mustard. you can add salt and pepper too if you like...

wack it on the pasta. eat it. it's damn good.

Last night I went up to Birdwood to my cousin Kylies Engagement party, then back through to Modbury Hts to see DiPana make balloon animals... which i left in the BACK OF GREGS CAR... waah! :(
