Our Rusty dog knew that he was leaving for a long time and decided she was going to go with him....Rusty loves the car, and every time a car gets packed for a trip, she thinks we are going to Poppy's....I had to pick her up to get her out of the car...Her mind was made up.
I have a lot of plans in the kitchen this weekend, but first on the list is soup....We get to go visit Aunty Irene and Uncle Fred again today at the races...
Today I will be taking along some more home-made chicken soup....some yummy biscuits that I made, which are better than Jam Drops. and some small Pasta's that Aunty liked....I love small pasta's for using in salads and soups...so I have bagged up 4 different shapes for her. I also have two potted Rhubarb plants that I have harvested from the original plants....These were my Nan's Rhubarb, which I transplanted when she passed....so Aunty Irene will be given some plants from her Mother's plants....I like the thought of that.
Daisy Baked Potatoes
Another yummy tea I make involves Baked Potatoes....I originally seen them in a store in Albury when I was younger....called Daisy Baked Potatoes....this is the original recipe...which I like to stick to...but there are plenty of toppings that you could add to this dish....
Bake your spuds.....I like to cover the whole tray with foil, this gives a better spud for this dish...I don't want the skin crunchy this time.
Cut the hot spud, add some herby butter.
Top with grated cheese and diced ham
Followed with fresh coleslaw
Top with a dollop of sour cream.....I didn't have sour cream and I wasn't going out in the rain to pick some chives, bit I did have home-made yoghurt, which I used.
|This is such a filling dish|
I know that when I make this dish
all the plates are left clean.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend....stay warm, and stay dry.
