A scorpion fish
And a tunicate, which is really interesting because it is actually a chordate, so it does not look like an animal but is more closely related to us than, say, a crab, or a worm. And all of that is interesting because I am a scientist, and I like all sorts of facts.
And since I have no interesting things to write about lately, no travels, not even much in the way of funny stories because I just am working so much, instead I will tell you that I baked delicious biscuits on wednesday, tonight I am baking banana cake. And my biscuit recipe? Well they were my classic, world famous (in my world that is) chocolate chippie biscuits, and since I am not longer there to bake them for everybody, here is my recipe:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Cream 125 grams of butter with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. When it is light and fluffy, beat in 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 egg.
So next sift into the mixture 1 and 3/4 cups of plain flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, a pinch of salt and 1 teaspoon cocoa powder. Mix well and then stir in 200 grams of chopped chocolate.
Roll the mixture into balls, press lightly onto an oven tray and bake for 10 minutes.
