CHICKEN COOKED IN CIDER

A couple of years ago my youngest son had a great holiday in Tasmania and came back with several bottles of a new cider he’d discovered – Pagan Cider.  Since then we always have a few bottles in the fridge, one of which I’m now going to use to try this chicken recipe – guess I’d better make it when he’s coming for dinner.

INDONESIAN SPAGHETTI

I found this recipe the other day in Mum’s collection and thought the name was, frankly, weird – Indonesian Spaghetti.  When you read the actual recipe though, I think it might taste OK, haven’t worked up the courage yet to try it though………………..

FETE TREATS – Rocky Road, Creamy Fudge, Toasted Marshmallows, Coconut Ice, Toffee, Peanut Brittle, Butterscotch Popcorn, Honeycomb, Chocolate-Cherry Coconut Roughs

When my kids were growing up providing something for them to take to be sold at their school fetes was a major headache.  I’m not sure if it’s the same sort of problem these days, but I thought this compile of Fete Treats might be worth posting just in case it is.  It’s from a Herald Sun feature in August 1994 and has all the major fete treats of the day printed in one place which I thought was a great idea.

LAYERED EGGPLANT AND TOMATOES

This 1990s recipe comes from a collection printed by The Australian Women’s Weekly – Delicious Vegetables from the Microwave.  Two things give its age away.  One, it mentions the wattage of the microwave something you don’t see in recipes now and two, it shows you how to salt and drain the eggplants, which you now longer need to do.  Despite those things it’still a nice easy vegetable dish.
