THAI-STYLE PORK AND VEAL RICE PATTIES

I don’t imagine that Mum ever made these as the spicy red curry paste wasn’t something she or Dad would have liked, but for those who don’t feel that way this recipe sounds like a great way to jazz up the humble rissole.

CRUSTLESS HAM AND POTATO SLICE

This recipe reminds me of the Sunday night teas that Mum used to make.  They were always something quick and easy to make that could be eaten with a fork while watching TV, that new fangled miracle that came into our lives after the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games.

KEY LIME PIE

Limes are now a common thing in Australia to cook with and to add to drinks, but in Mum’s day lime juice was only something 19th century British sailors had drunk and Limeys was a derogatory name for those sailors. This Key Lime Pie recipe comes from a Pie Delight segment in the New Idea, can’t find a date on it, but I’m guessing around the early 2000s.

SCOTCH EGGS and TOMATO GRAVY

This starts off as a classic Scotch Egg recipe – hard boiled eggs, covered in sausage mince, rolled in breadcrumbs and fried.  That’s the way I’ve always made them mostly  to take on picnics.  The twist here is that you put them in a tomato sauce and bake them.  Certainly different – maybe worth a try!

MINI LEMON TARTS

Little tarts like these always remind me of the afternoon tea parties Mum used to have with her friends.  I’m not sure she made these particular tarts, but the sight of the pastry, filling and cream somehow brings back memories of getting home from school and being allowed to eat the leftovers…………..ahhhhhhhhhhh………..delicious memories.
