This show ticked a number of boxes for me. I love crime shows. I like comedy. I like Rashida Jones. Tick, Tick, Tick. Angie Tribeca is a crime show parody staring Rashida Jones, created by Steve Carell and his wife Nancy Carell. Rashida Jones plays lone-wolf LAPD Detective Angie Tribeca who will stop crime no matter what it takes. This show is incredibly cliched, as the genre is intended to be, but for me it fell short of being actually funny. It is just too over the top, too exaggerated. Which is a shame as it has so many good comedic actors in it and writing it. If you are after a good comedic crime show, I'd go for Brooklyn Nine-Nine over Angie Tribeca.

Sunday 6km run/walk along the Telegraph Station trail, pictured above | Monday Weights | Tuesday 3.5km Run | Wednesday Weights | Thursday Rest | Friday Rest | Saturday Rest

This week was so much better for exercise. I was feeling much better and everything just flowed from there. It all took a downturn once the weekend hit though but 4 workouts for the week is pretty good. I'll see if I can hit five this week. Wish me luck! 

Link Love - Birth Control, Plants and Survivors

This is the weekend to end all weekends in Alice Springs, that one weekend where there is not only something on each day, but more than one thing on each day and people visiting. Tonight there is a movie night for the movie Bad Moms at the cinema, but there is also the Alice Springs Bicycle Film Festival. Tomorrow there is the Eco Fair at Olive Pink but also the Old Timers Fete (Yes our nursing home is accurately called 'Old Timers'). Sunday is the markets but also the Eco Fair. We can go for months without something on then suddenly boom it all hits at once.

We also have visitors this weekend. A friend staying here as well as friend's staying at my mother-in-laws'. A huge family lunch on Saturday. Maybe a quiet afternoon Sunday. I'm not sure as yet what I'll choose from the other activities, aside from Bad Moms, I couldn't pass on that! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Food I Made From Pinterest - Flatbread

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Food I made from Pinterest - Flatbread | Girl in the Pjs
I spent a long time scrolling Pinterest for flatbread recipes before I found one I like. My Pinterest board, confusingly still includes the recipes that I didn't use. I tend to shy away from anything that needs an hour to rise - I never make anything that much ahead of time, let alone have time to let it rise. This flatbread does not use yeast and can be made within half an hour.

Flatbread is the perfect go to thing to quickly whip up to have with dips. I have made this particular recipe numerous times and it is always super yummy. I find it goes well with hummus or baba ganoush. Make sure you roll it really thin and when you think it is thin enough, roll it a little thinner as it does tend to rise a little more than expected in the oven. Yes, you get to use a rolling pin or a wine bottle, wine bottles make great rolling pins and have an added bonus of having wine inside which you can drink while eating your flatbread - it's win win.

1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary plus extra leaves
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup olive oil plus some olive oil spray
sea salt

Heat the oven to 180C fan forced
Sift flour into a bowl and add chopped rosemary, baking powder and salt. 
Make a well in centre, then add water and oil and stir with a wooden spoon to form a dough. 
Knead dough gently on a floured work surface until you have a ball.
Divide dough into three pieces. 
Roll out each piece of dough out on a sheet of baking paper until the dough is thin and in a shape you like.
Spray the top with oil and press the extra rosemary leaves into the dough. 
Sprinkle with sea salt. 
Gently lift your baking paper and dough onto your baking sheet 
Repeat with fresh baking paper for your remaining dough, doing one at a time and leaving the oiling and salting until just before you put the dough into the oven.
Bake in the oven until golden, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer flatbread to a rack to cool, discarding baking paper.
Serve broken into pieces.

The flatbread an be stored for two days in an airtight container but it never really lasts that long around our place.
