Today I made Eye fillet steaks.
This is the recipe.
The first thing I did was marinated the steak in a honey soy marinade for 1hr.
Then cook it on the BBQ or a hot pan.
Turn it over every 5 mins for best results.
Then you are ready to eat.
Today I made spaghetti bolognaise.
The first step is to brown a few chopped onions and fry some garlic and herbs in a fry pan with a bit of olive oil.
The second is to brown the mince.
Then you add the pasta sauce and season with salt and pepper.
After you do that put the spaghetti in some boiling water and let it cook.
Finally you drain the spaghetti and then you are ready to eat.
This term during our RRR lessons we have been focusing on the 16 habits of mind today we focused on listening and understanding with empathy.
First we did a drawing activity and then a acting one where you had to act out scenarios.
I learned that to show empathy you have to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and that different people may react differently to what you do in certain events.
Today we did a challenge called billiard ball bounces.
For this challenge you had to figure out the amount of bounces until it went into a hole (excluding the centre pockets) starting from the bottom left pocket on a 45 degree angle.
The first thing we did was map it out on a table and count the bounces and I found that the bounces were affected by the length and width of the table and then I made a rule, the rule was that the answer will always be length + width – 2.
The second time we worked on the software and found that the rule does not work on all numbers so we did some further research but we failed to prevail in our findings.
I ended up going on the software one more time but could not find anything new.
Today I made chickpea choclate cake. This cake is a choclate cake but made using chickpeas rather than flour and is therefore gluten free.
This is the recipe.
This is the chickpeas and eggs mixed together.
This is it before it goes in the oven.
This is it after.
I loved making this and cant wait to make my next dish.
For this term, my passion project is to cook all my favourite foods like spaghetti, pizza, tacos, eye fillet and much more.
The reason I want to do this is so I know how to cook a nice meal for my family.
I will do this by making one of these each week and taking photos or film of me making it.
I think this will be a fun but useful thing to do.
For this project I chose the Tassie Devil.
I chose it because Tassie Devils are massively under threat from DFTD and need a lot of support.
This is my script.
PTC: Tassie Devils are the largest carnivore’s marsupial in the world and they are critically endangered because of a disease called Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD).
VO: The Tassie Devils mostly feed on carrion and are quite poor hunters, but when food is scarce, they can still get food.
Devils are mostly black but usually have white markings on the rump or the chest. Adult male devils are usually bigger than the females. They stand about 30 centimetres high at the shoulder and weigh up to 14 kilograms.
The Tassie Devil was previously native to mainland Australia but because of the introduction of dingoes are no longer found there and have not been there for 400 years.
DFTD is a contagious disease, which is spread by biting during feeding and mating.
DFTD causes tumours around the mouth, face and neck of Devils. This disease develops rapidly and is fatal. The affected die within 6 months.
Over 85% of Tasmanian Devils are affected which is nearly the entire population, No wonder the tassie devil is endangered
The ‘Save the Tasmanian Devil’ program was established to investigate the disease through population monitoring, disease diagnostics and wild population management.
As part of this program, Healesville Sanctuary and Melbourne zoo are two of eighteen zoos taking Tasmanian Devils. If the catastrophic decline of this species continues, these captive populations could become an essential source of animals for reintroduction to the wild.
You can help by going to https://www.zoo.org.au/healesville/animals/tasmanian-devil and donating to help find a cure for this horrible disease.
This term we were set the task of choosing a country to research, I chose Turkey because I thought that Turkey would be an interesting place to visit.
There are a few differences between Australia and Turkey some main ones are that, 99.8% of the population of Turkey is Muslim meaning that only 0.2% of the population is of a other religion in Australia however our religion is very mixed with a lot of different groups.
There are also a few similarities as well like, their citizens speak a variety of different languages like, Turkish, Kurdish, Armenian, Arabic and Greek, Australian citizens speak lots of different languages like German, Dutch, French, Japanese, Chinese and many others. part of the reason is that we have a lot of people from different countries living in Australia.
If I lived in Turkey I would find it difficult to fit in because of the difference in religion and clothing styles, what I would find interesting is the food and the history.
(this is my work: above)
I think I have learnt a lot about Turkey and this will help me better understand their culture and religion.
When the lure arrived I immediately got to work.
First I measured where the lure box will go.
Then I made some play dough into a rectangle and then pressed the lure halfway into it.
Then I put a box around it and then sealed the edges with hot glue.
Then I poured the silicone into the box until it covered the lure by 2cm
Then I flipped the box over and took out the play dough and put in more silicone
Once it had set I took the mould out of the box and removed the lure.
Then I made a rig to weight it and added the eyelets.
Then I put the mould together and poured the resin in.
Then I trimmed it up and sanded it.
Once I had sanded it I trimmed a jig skin a put it on the lure
Then I dipped it in water to shrink the skin.
Then it was done.
