PUMPKIN DAMPER

Not sure you can get much more Australian than damper, especially if you serve it with a lamb stew.  Originally it was a simple flour and water mix baked over a campfire, now recipes like this one have gone a step further using wholemeal flour, cinnamon and pumpkin. It still goes well with lamb though.

SANDWICH FILLINGS incl MOCK CHICKEN FILLING

Almost back to school time after the long summer holidays here in Melbourne.
So I thought some old 1970s sandwich filling ideas might give you some new ideas for the kid’s lunches.  Mum used to make the Mock Chicken Filling for our sandwiches and also for afternoon teas with her friends.  I remember it as tasting quite nice.

CHRISTMAS LEFTOVERS – Turkey/Ham Spread or Dip

This is the last of the Herald Sun’s ‘Second time around’ ideas for Christmas leftovers I’m posting today, but it’s a good one.  Turkey or ham with mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce and mustard to give it a tang and celery for a crunch.  I think leftover chicken would work just as well too.
