NerdBuZZ Q11

Hello guys! Before I start, I'd like to announce that...

Kathryn put this on our dance blog...

Also feauturing Emily from An Open Window




NerdBuZZ is almost over! After the 12th question, it's done for. NerdBuZZ will happen a few times each year, and will be getting better and better and better and better and better and...

You see my point. I'll give you more information about the next NerdBuZZ in my post tommoz :P

This message is getting a bit old now, but I'll put it up anyway for anyone who hasn't seen it yet :)

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE (ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN IT ALREADY) ~

In order to make my competition fair, considering that you all live in different countries and timezones, I will be changing NerdBuZZ slightly. 

In order to win, you NO LONGER have to be the FIRST person to get the answer right, because we all live in different places, some of you may be asleep, at school and etc when I have published a question. Therefore, It would not be fair. So instead, all winner names will be simply entered into an online random name picker, which the lottery and a lot of professional competitions use. Also, all names who got the right answer but didn't get chosen from the random name picker, WILL RECEIVE 3 POINTS FOR IT'S GROUP! I will also put all the comments on moderation, and give you competitors 24 HOURS EXACT to answer the question.

Late Afternoon Out / NerdBuZZ Q10

Hi guys! Okay before I start, I'd like to force you to look at a new blog called ~



This is a BRAND new blog, with the authors including moi and the amazing Kathryn from Hobbits and Hippogriffs! Check it out guys, especially if you're a dancer yourself. Please keep in mind that this blog will not just be about ballet, I'll make sure to add in some other dance styles in my posts...As I want to be a dancer and not a ballerina.

Today I went Candy's and Creams, a wonderful little restaurant not so far from home...It was a lot of fun! 

Ugh sorry but I don't like posts like this AT ALL, but I PROMISE that I'll have an awesome post up for next week guys! Sorry : /

Ugh this horrible grey picture...Sorry! No time to edit : /


Before I went, there was a display at the St. Pancras Eurostar. A lady told us that from 2039 - 2089, all the bits of the world that have disappeared in this picture below...WILL DISAPPEAR, BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE! 

Also, this dress is made from a REAL refugee tent, a family of six had lived in it.

#SAVETHEEARTH

I MADE THIS!


For more information ~

#dress4ourtime 
#climatechange



Here are my lovely pictures of the menu...Which I actually think are pretty cool!





This is what I ordered. As soon as it came I started eating it...As you probably already know from the fiercely bitten bite mark. Then I realised, "Oh! I forgot to take a picture!"


This is what my friend ordered, UMMMMMMMMM!

This is what my little brother ordered, who was annoying me at the restaurant. He also failed to eat it all. ^ ^


This was after the restaurant, we went to Tescos and bought some stuff for a last minute dinner! I took this picture simply because I liked the colours XD

Easy Curry Recipe / NerdBuZZ 7

Hi guys! So one of the things I LOVE is curry MMMMM...So let's get started!


Kerala Prawn Curry



Ingredients

  • 2 red chillies split, cut into quarters lengthways and seeded
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2½ cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp black mustard seed
  • ½ tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 14 curry leaves, fresh or dried
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp cracked black peppercorns
  • 250g jumbo prawns, leave some with their tails on if you like
  • 150ml reduced-fat coconut milk

To serve

  • a squeeze of lime
  • chopped fresh coriander, plus a sprig or two
  • freshly boiled basmati rice


Method

  1. In a food processor, blitz the chillies, onion and ginger with 3 tbsp water into a smoothish paste – you may need to scrape it down the sides.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy pan or wok. When hot, toss in the mustard and fenugreek seeds, and curry leaves – they’ll crackle and pop – and fry for 10 seconds. Add the onion paste, turn the heat down a tad and cook without colouring for about 5 minutes. Splash in some water if it starts to catch.
  3. Add the turmeric and cracked peppercorns and stir the spices around for a few seconds before tipping in the prawns. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a simmer, stirring all the time. The milk will take on a yellow colour from the turmeric. Cook for 1 minute until everything’s heated through. Squeeze over some lime, sprinkle with fresh coriander and serve with rice.


You don't need to try this recipe, but I'd certainly appreciate it if you did!
