VINE LEAVES WITH PINE NUTS AND CURRANTS

A fabulous flavour of Greece or so the Women’s Weekly said in it’s Let’s Go Greek supplement back in 1992.  Don’t think anyone would disagree with that statement.  Always a favourite at a Greek restaurant, but by the look of this recipe pretty easy to make at home as well.

MINI VEGIE AND CHEESE FRITTATAS

It’s Grand Prix weekend here in Melbourne this weekend.  My husband is a F1 fan and we not only go to the race here every year, but also have been lucky enough to go to several races overseas.  As you’d expect the food on sale at the track varies from country to country.   So far, unsurprisingly, Italy has had the best.  Here in Melbourne it’s all pretty much heavy duty fried things so I usually take a lighter lunch for us.  Tomorrow I’m making these Frittatas to take……..

CHEESY VEGETABLE PIE

Seems like when Mum tore this out of the Woman’s Day she missed the last few lines so has handwritten them on the bottom.  Her instructions read “other half 27cm” and “over with pastry.  200o C, 400oF – 40 mins”.  I’ll add my comments  – that this could be a hearty pie for vegetarians by simply substituting the bacon for extra vegetables.

VEGETABLE & ALMOND CASSEROLE

Vegetarian recipes weren’t something Mum would have been looking for on the pages of the Herald Sun.  Growing up I can’t remember anyone among our family or friends who didn’t eat meat, so cooking vegetable only dishes just wasn’t necessary.  This recipe is on a page Mum kept from the paper that had pork, lamb, sausage and fish casseroles on it, so the recipes were around, they just weren’t something Mum made.
