Games Night Biscuits

Games Night Biscuits

I'm trying to start a new tradition in the Atomic Shrimp household - Saturday night is going to be family games night.

To add to our enjoyment, I've made these special biscuits with a games theme.


The Joy Of Socks

The Joy Of Socks - Wearing Odd Socks On Purpose

Wearing odd pairs of socks is silly and fun - it's like being extrovert in secret. So can we make it sillier, or more fun?


Making a cider press

Making A Cider Press

September 2013 - here's a project to make a cheap and simple press for apples (and maybe cheese), from readily available materials and components.

This is going to differ from some of my previous projects in several ways, but most notably - it needs to be quick (at the time of starting, the apples are already nearly ripe), and it's going to be properly designed - there will be no guesswork or cut-first-then-measure.

Penny Bun Mushroom - AKA Cep, Porcini

Penny Bun Mushroom - AKA Cep, Porcini

September 2014 - The Penny Bun Mushroom (also known as Cep or Porcini) is possibly the most highly sought wild mushroom - I've picked it many times in the past, but for some reason, haven't written about it here, until now.


Beefsteak Fungus - Revisited

Beefsteak Fungus - Revisited

Last time I found Beefsteak Fungus (which was also the first time I found it), I wasn't able to collect it.

On a foraging walk in the New Forest in September 2014, I found a nice young specimen - and this time, I took it home and cooked it.


Hanging Clip-Top Storage Jar

Hanging Clip-Top Storage Jar

September 2014 - Here's a fun little project to convert an empty instant coffee jar into a storage jar with a wire clip top - using a wire coat hanger.

When I was thinking the design through, it occurred to me that it might be useful/fun to preserve the coat hanger hook and make this into a jar that can be hung up on a hook, for example, under a shelf.
