Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Wave Rock ~ Skinny Eggplant Parm ~ Sally Harwell ~ National Brownie Day

 




Good 33º SUPER foggy morning. 
 
Yesterday the fog left and we had blue sky, fluffy clouds, and we topped at 55º.
 
 
 
Picture of the Day ... how to react with a statue...
 

 
 
 
Interesting formation......
 

Wave Rock is located near Hyden in Western Australia (WA), the town being in the wheatbelt of the state and one of Australia's most recognisable landforms. Hyden is 210 miles south-east of Perth.

Wave Rock is part of several rock formations at Hyden Rock, however it is probably engenders the most interest from visitors. The rock, a granite inselberg, is a spectacular example of what geomorphologists call a "flared slope". A flared slope is a concave-upward or -inward bedrock surface that is typically found around the base of inselbergs. It was formed by natural erosion.

The rock is 49 ft from the ground and more than 330 ft long. It looks like a giant surf wave of multi-colored granite about to crash onto the bush below. It is believed this amazing formation was more than 2,700 million years in the making.

Since 2006, the rock has played host to a popular music festival each year in spring.

Each year on December 8, brownie lovers across the nation enjoy one of their favorite baked goods on National Brownie Day.
In the United States, the chocolate brownie is a favorite, with the blonde brownie running a close second.  A blonde brownie is made with brown sugar and no chocolate and is often called a blondie.
The earliest recipes for brownies we are familiar with today are found published in regional cookbooks and newspapers around the turn of the last century. The 1904 Laconia, NH Home Cookery, the 1904 Chicago, IL Service Club Cook Book, and an April 2, 1905, edition of The Boston Globe are three early examples. In 1906, Fannie Merritt Farmer published a recipe in an edition of The Boston Cooking School Cook Book.  
Three myths have gained popularity over the years regarding the creation of the brownie:
  • In an accidental mixing of ingredients, a chef added melted chocolate to biscuit dough.
  • A forgetful cook left out the flour when mixing the batter.
  • When a housewife did not have baking powder, she improvised to create this new treat. The wife decided to serve her guest flattened cakes.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Enjoy some fudgy, warm brownies. Be sure to invite friends and family to enjoy them with you, too! Pour a glass of milk and maybe add a scoop of ice cream.
