It's only 2 days before I leave for London. Soak up what heat Australia has to offer before I take in the harsh northern winters.
Playing with a new x100s...
2013. What a year, a move of blogs. A movement in style and consistency.
2014 will bring in new challenges and goals for me.
I bring you this, the last painting I produced for 2013. Dedicated to my lover and partner in crime.
2014 will bring sculptures that have been simmer a little too long in my mind.
This weekend, I decided to make honey bbq ribs. It's super simple and requires only like 30 mins prep time and 60 minutes of oven time. Please note the below recipe is so rough I just tend to add as I see fit... there are no measurements.
- honey/maple syrup
- worcestershire sauce
- BBQ sauce
- olive oil
- garlic diced
- brown sugar
- rice wine/brandy
- pork ribs
- Prepare marinade by mixing in a couple of tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce and a generous amount of bbq sauce.
- Add diced garlic, squirts of oil and a cap full of brandy or rice wine
- Mix together with pork ribs. Cover and let marinade settle for a couple of hours or throw it in the oven if you're impatient.
- Preheat oven to 180'C fan forced. Place ribs on tray and cook it for about 45-60 minutes.
- Brush left over marinade on ribs every 10-15 minutes. Flip ribs once.
- Sprinkle brown sugar on last glaze for extra crisp and sweetness
- Serve with chips/'taters etc
This week's Sunday (or public holiday Monday) recipe is 'Soused Herring Roll'. It was my favourite lunchtime snack when I travelled to Amsterdam. Served cold from the cart vendors, I couldn't help but make it today for trip to memory lane.
- Pickled Herring
- Pickled Cucumbers (Gherkins) Sliced
- Brown or Red Onion diced
- Bread Roll
Instructions: Layer ingredients into bread roll and sprinkle pepper to taste. Served cold.
Speaking of nostalgic thoughts here's a look into my new WIP... 'Harbour Street Dreams'
Been doing pen brush work but nothing worth sharing to you. I'd thought I'd touch one a bit of my older pen styles. I enjoy drawing my food and eating it even more. It's self discipline to let in front of the meal and draw it as fast as you can before it gets cool.
Today's meal was Steak & Guinness Pie as seen below. I used the one provided by good ol' Jamie Oliver: Steak & Guinness Pie
And I don't normally do plugs but also please help out with a single like for this photo on Instagram: http://instagram.com/p/ezVttoIzYS/
When the blues hit you, it hits hard. Then you learn and listen as you pick yourself up, again and again.
I've been really feeling this vibe either way. Even if it means I'm holed up at home.
Back in the day, I was a shoe cleaner.
Before I had a job, before I had a pager.
Went with some friends for Sujin's SkyDiving Birthday surprise a couple of weeks ago. It was a pretty cool watching the people as tiny dots falling from the sky and landing so perfectly...
Also did a wedding not too long ago either, these were my favourite shots.
I'm a sucker for a good time piece. I've been looking at Submariners for god knows how long and been checking out some alternatives but finally put together a combo that I really like.
Another new blog/website *sigh* for some reason I'm having issues with hosting/domains on my previous website so I'd thought I'd re-haul it all again. Kind of seems like a bi-yearly thing. But do not fret, all future updates will continue from here. I will be spending the next few days trying to get timbo400.com back up.
The new website is hosted by Squarespace and I must say it's a really easy content management system. Definitely rate it better than the good ole trusty WordPress. Amazing how far the web has gone from back in the day of Angelfire and Xanga pages.
Expect more photos and drawings from myself.
