Summer cooking

It's Travis' birthday this week. No choice but to make a chocolate cake, then. James helped a lot, which was good. The ganache split a little bit, but not spectacularly badly. Cake tasted awesome, though.

After letting it gather rather more dust than is probably healthy, John and James discovered how fabulous the George Foreman Grill is at making panini. English supermarkets have relatively recently started selling "panini bread," which are basically little flat-ish rectangular loaves that fit nicely in the grill. The current favorite combo (which I highly recommend) is ham, cheddar, and jalapenos. Here's mine from yesterday. YUM.

I'm also the proud owner of a very awesome new mug. The only improvement would be if the spanners were knitting needles.

Yum, fantastic grub! Love the wristwarmers too, I'm trying to decide what to make next, Nic x
