MUM’S PICNIC SLICE

Our family had a great picnic in the park last Sunday and my lovely 7 year old granddaughter and I made a Savoury Luncheon Slice* to share.  On the same page as that recipe is this other slice of Mum’s which is also an old family favourite.  The two us will have to make it for the next picnic.

MINESTRONE WITH BACON

This is another of my minestrone soup recipes.  It differs from the other one in just a few small ways.  It has potato, cabbage and Haricot beans and also less pasta, but the same rule applies about making it up to the marked area before adding the pasta. Either version works really well.

 

CHEESE & BACON SLICE

Mum wrote this recipe out pretty roughly on a piece of paper from an exercise book.  She used to make it fairly often either to take on picnics or for casual Sunday night teas.  I can even visualize the baking tray she made it in – the family loved it.
