A sure sign winter has arrived: Fresh, homemade fruit loaf! I've made this every weekend for the last three weeks. It's my favourite thing to have for breakfast at the moment, washed down with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice...
Since SJ brings home a bag of oranges from work at the end of every week, this orange cake has been doing the rounds: Morning tea with my Ma & Pa, an easy dessert with the in-laws, and taken to work to share with my work colleagues...
Custardy, custardy goodness: Peaches & Cream pudding.
Ma picked me up these CWA (Country Women's Association) recipe books from a garage sale recently. They are fantastic! SJ & I had a good chuckle at the opening paragraph of Fingers and Forks, a delightful little book on outdoor entertaining, which sets out the expectations of the dinner party hostess. Timeless!
I picked the last of the beets from the veggie patch last weekend and using the CWA's Ways with Fruits and Vegetables, set about making some beetroot chutney. It was a terribly messy process (as things involving beetroot inevitably are), but surprisingly easy and incredibly tasty.
