My Kitchen Rules aka MKR, is a reality-tv cooking show, where two people team up against other teams of two & have them over for a three course meal, which they then judge. The winner of these initial competitions goes on to further rounds of competition etc. Some of our friends started doing this between themselves, last year was the first time, and this year marks the second. My wife & I are excited and a little nervous because this is our first time! Without further adieu here’s the first week, in pictures.
Week 1 of the #ywammkr season 2, Phil & Jenny’s theme was South America, and because we’re holding the scoring till the end I’ll just let you see what they served but you’ll have to wait to see how it tasted !!!

A chair is a stable, raised surface used to sit on, commonly for use by one person. Chairs are most often supported by four legs and have a back; however, a chair can have three legs (in a triangle shape) or could have a different shape depending on the criteria of the chair specifications. A chair without a back or arm rests is a stool, or when raised up, a bar stool. A chair with arms is an armchair and with folding action and inclining footrest, a recliner. A permanently fixed chair in a train or theater is a seat or airline seat; when riding, it is a saddle and bicycle saddle, and for an automobile, a car seat or infant car seat. With wheels it is a wheelchair and when hung from above, a swing.

An island off the coast of Scotland has the prestigious honour of being the single source of every blue hone granite curling stone in the entire world. The team at Cherry Hill have decided to give those rocks a chance to fulfill their dreams of being heaved and swept down a sheet of ice. Last week was our second match in a Wednesday night friendly league that just started at the Kelowna Curling Club. None of the CHC team had curled before, least of which me, who being from Australia hadn’t even seen snow until I was 17 years old. But we are quick learners and have won our first two games now, with great team performances and plenty of laughs. So if you haven’t curled before, get a broom and head down to a curling rink this winter & give it a go. It’s heaps of fun !!
Out of all the cool coffee gadgets to come out of the last few years the most unusual and the most special to look at, is the Syphon. Made famous in Japan, it adds element of magic to a coffee shop experience. They would set up a bottom lit bar & while your wait for your coffee you watch in amazement as the water bubbles up a small glass & then down again with coffee in toe (see this video).
because of the filter system it employes, the coffee is clean but fully extracted in what they call “full immersion” and because the extraction time is nothing compared to our French press it has left Caffeine. So if you’re entertaining and want a party trick after dinner and at the same an awesome tasting coffee, there is nothing like the Syphon.
