Today is the 1st day of Spring here in Melbourne. You could argue that it’s too late in the year to post a soup recipe, but for soup lovers like me, it’s never too late!!!
I’m deviating from Mum’s recipes this week because I made a pot of this minestrone soup for my family last Sunday and everyone said I should add the recipe to the collection. I always make it the day before up to the marked area, then reheat it the next day and add the pasta. If you add the pasta too early it can get a bit gluggy.
Tomato sauce and cheese on toast has been a well loved favourite in Mum’s and my households for years. Mum also used to make a little afternoon tea/supper snack that was cheese and bacon on toast, but this recipe combines them both. Personally I’m not sure about the garlic, but after finding this recipe I’m now going to give the sauce, cheese and bacon a go.
When I was growing up the best part of the Sun newspaper was the Corinella children’s page. Each week the paper would publish jokes, drawings and recipes sent in by children and they would be awarded certificates of merit. This Fried Rice recipe earned it’s sender a Blue Certificate. It’s not the way I make Fried Rice, it has a much higher egg to rice ratio than my version, but it looks good and certainly worthy of a Blue Certificate.
