Mum and Dad both loved ice cream, so Mum made a lots of varieties. She added cherry ripe bars and nuts, chocolate mint bars and a lot flavours to plain ice cream, but I don’t think she ever made this super chocolate one. Chocolate ice cream, mars bars, milk choc bits, white choc bits and dark chocolate – a chocolate lover’s dream I think.
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.
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.
