This recipe comes from the Herald Sun cooking page from around August 1994. Can’t remember Mum ever making them, but now I’ve found it I’m going to give them a go. They look like they could be good to have with a drink.
Today these filled bread cases would be great to serve up as finger food with drinks, but Mum would have made them as a supper snack. They demonstrate the way entertaining changed over the years. Mum and Dad would rarely have people over for a sit down dinner. Most people ate quite early, so friends were invited after dinner for drinks or maybe cards and Mum would serve up a hearty supper. By the 1990s things were changing for my generation, but it was still popular for Mum and Dad to entertain that way.
I’ve been making this recipe for years, but until now hadn’t seen a recipe for it, Mum just told me how to make it. When I found this in her collection I realized I’d found where her initial inspiration. It’s so simple to make and tastes great.
This is a low kilojoule recipe for Chicken Noodle Soup. I like that beside the chicken and noodles it also has carrot, leek, creamed corn and two types of onions. More than just a soup, more like a meal in a bowl.
This was a dish that Mum would make as a ‘special’ dessert especially in summer. It’s light and fluffy and can be prepared before visitors arrive. I haven’t tasted it for many years, but just the name brings back memories of those meals with family and friends.
