COCONUT AND MANGO TERRINE

The warm months must have finished as there wasn’t any mangoes in the supermarket this week.  If you still want the mango taste this recipe using canned slices could be the answer.

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……..

TAPAS SELECTION

This selection of Tapas delicacies was published in the Herald Sun in about 2002.  Of course they are much more common now, but this selection are fairly simple to make and as the accompanying article says are ideal “taken with a glass of sherry, beer or wine”.

GARLIC MUSTARD RACK OF LAMB

In Mum’s time lamb was a cheap and tasty meat to use, but with the cost of racks of lamb at what they are today if you’re going to cook them you might just as well push the boat out and add a great topping. I don’t think you can go wrong with this mustard, garlic and soy sauce combo spread on top.

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.
