Are you going to clean up that mess?
chicken liver pate … I embraced dishes you could set alight – Crepes Suzette, Bombe Alaska. But my cooking wasn’t really appreciated. ‘Are you going to clean up that mess?’ was a fairly standard question Dad would ask as everyone was chowing down.
expected of a farmer’s daughter in the 1960s. He had his favourite dishes he used to cook; Aberdeen sausage, kangaroo patties, mince, scrambled eggs with cheese. I repeat his favourites. However, the coconut ice and the Baker’s toast were delicious. Baker’s toast is like the inside of a Crunchie or Violet Crumble bar. Mum’s culinary skills weren’t great but then she didn’t really have to cook. Dad did all the cooking. And everything else. Except the washing up.
Moving forward to a time when my kids were very young
The non-allergenic scones
And the ANZACs

“They look delish. 10/10” and “Oh yum! They look amazing!!!! Can’t wait to eat some tomorrow”.
So my hopes of not having to share them were dashed by one photo.
