Cookery on a Rainy Day
Can anyone tell me how to successfully type around pictures in blogger? It is driving me nuts!! I eventually do it with a lot of fiddling about.
We have had the most beautiful steady rain. What better pursuit on a rainy weekend than some home cookery. The coconut fancies are from this book by Lady Flo Bjelke-Petersen. Flo was married to a former Premier of Queensland, Joh and she was once a Senator. Don't know about her politics, but her recipes are simple, good old fashioned food.
We had a whole stack of cherry tomatoes which we were never going to eat, so we made some tomato relish from Flo's book as well.
It is delicious with cold meat on sandwiches and with cheese.
Some of the cherry tomatoes never went really red, so we think they may have been a different type. Thus, the relish isn't red but a sort of orange colour. Makes no difference to the taste. Yum.
