Swancon, Bowling, Earth Hour

The Australian bloggers have all been at a conference in Perth called Swancon and it looks like they had a fabulous time, Glenda Larke has been posting lots of pictures in her blog. Interesting, because it shows some of the authors of the blogs or books I read and puts a face to the person behind the writing.

We were supposed to get more snow again last night but luckily didn't although apparently Buffalo got some. The lake effect I was talking about a few weeks ago. Easter Sunday was delightfully sunny but very cold. Didn't go anywhere, just relaxed. Today, of course, is Five Pin bowling and none of my team will be there so I will be plonked onto another team! I wonder how that will work. They don't have any kind of competition between the teams so it doesn't really make a difference where you bowl or with whom.

If any of you have signed up for Earth Hour, don't forget, its next Saturday, March 29, between 8 and 9 p.m. If you haven't signed up please do so at my site and join in. Its only for one small hour out of your life and well worth doing. We are going to friend's for dinner and plan to have dinner over by then and to have our Earth Hour after.

I love Kedgeree although I haven't made it for a while, my father always made it with smoked haddock, but this recipe just calls for smoked fish, I know Nigella Lawson makes it with salmon, anyway, here is a more traditional recipe:


Cuisine: Indian

Servings: 1

2 oz cooked smoked fish
1 3/4 oz rice

to taste; cloves, peppercorns, cardamom

1 egg
1 tsp curry paste
1 tsp mango chutney
fresh mango (optional)
fresh coriander

Cook rice with a couple of cloves, some peppercorns and some crushed cardamoms. Boil eggs for 4-5 minutes, shell and slice, remove yolks. Put chutney and curry paste and 2-3 tbsps of water per person in a pan and boil, then simmer for 5 mins. Add mango if using (if not, add an extra tsp mango chutney to sauce) and fresh coriander. Mix fish with rice and heat through, add sauce and egg whites, sieve yolks over top and serve.

I like kedgeree for breakfast, but it can be eaten for any meal you choose.

Have a great day.
