    dad making toad in the hole on the barbecue.

    mum's vegetable soup and brown rice and lentils. both of which i hate hate hated. she used to put sausages in the lentils, didn't make it any better. made the sausages taste like lentils, uggggggggh. she tried to make it more appealing by telling us the brown rice was little vacuum cleaners, cleaning out our insides. and having races to eat the soup and using things like who can finish first, the puzzle or the soup. stupidddddd!

    she used to make ravioli a lot. when i went off dairy i remember it tasting odd, and it turned out the pastry contained cheese or something.

    left-over pasta got fried up with egg through it. i still do that.

    Sunday roasts and afternoon tea at Grandma's house. Still love any roast meat and vegies with loads of gravy. Her scones, sponge cakes, lamingtons etc. I am lucky enough to have her old hand written recipes and am working on perfecting some of these.

    My mum's roast potatoes, no matter what I do I can't recreate them. And her apple and rubharb crumble, yum!

    We also used to get this little vegetarian pie that came in a can. The company that made it discontinued the product about 18 years ago but my whole family still misses it.

    At my nan and pops place they didn't have topping, so we used to put orange cordial (straight) on our vanilla ice cream. Nan used to make yummy trifle as well.

    Mum's spinach and feta quiche.
    Nasi Goreng and kangkung with kecap manis and chilli, from the huge amount of time we spent in Indonesia.
    Mum's minestrone.
    Lamb roast
    Platters of 'picky food' (olives/cheeses etc). We used to have 'picky dinner' a few times a month, and it was my favourite

    Haha pumpkin was the ONLY food I didn't like growing up!

    I have memories of catching and cooking yabbies on the farm, hot stews simmering away on the woodfired stove throughout all of winter, and chicken giblet soup which sounds disgusting but was freaking awesome til I found out what it was!

    We were kinda poor, so my Mum used to be really creative with cooking us cheap but delicious foods. She would often make things like soups or stews and pad them out with cheese or girdle scones :drool:

    Nothing better than dinner at Mum's in winter!
