This is the last one. I promise. For now. The Qype lot like playing, so here is, as they call it, NomNomNom: The Movie.

Blatant Vote Whoring

Hello lovely people. Please vote for me in NomNomNom and in thus doing so validate my pitiful existence. Just go over to the voting page, choose ‘Cowfish and Eater’ and click vote. I will owe you a beer, or something. Maybe a hug. Whatever floats your boat. A hug in a boat, with a beer? […]

NomNomNom – Team Cowfish and Eater: The Day of Cookening

Sunday July 12th was the fateful day where my experimentation ended and I had to dance like a performing monkey for the pleasure of the assembled judges.

In my normal style of double booking myself, I have two food related things I’m down for this weekend. Firstly, the one that I’m missing, is a barbeque where we will divvy up the pig that the Randomness posse bought a while back (named Ssenmodnar for historical reasons), which has finally reached the end of […]
