PATE

You can see from the typing that this is an old recipe. I used to make it back in the 70s and 80s and serve it as an entree with thin slices of toast.   It was cheap and easy to make – ideal.  I rediscovered it this year and now make it to have with drinks.  It freezes well so I just put out what I need and keep the rest for later.  If you don’t want to do that you can easily halve the recipe.

1980s PARTY FINGER FOOD – Pate, Spicy Chicken Wings, Meat Balls, Lemony Almond Scallops, Prunes and Bacon, Cheese and Salami Savouries

With Mum’s 100th birthday only a couple of months away I’ve started to look for party recipes.  I found these microwave recipes which were published by The Sun in March 1986 around the time everyone was buying a microwave, but still not quite sure what to do with it.  I’m not sure I’d use my microwave to cook them today though, as I think we’ve now figured out what works and what doesn’t in it.

SALMON WELLINGTON

I love Beef Wellington, but it’s a tricky thing to make so I usually leave it to the experts.  This Salmon Wellington looks a lot easier and although the recipe uses tinned Red Salmon I don’t see why a nice piece of fresh salmon couldn’t be substituted.
