YOU know I like bright colours, yes? Well, I added a little colour to the table this week. This set of aluminium coasters was $3 from Vinnies. Is it a picnic set do you think? Did people once pack coasters for picnics? Wow. How civilised.
Margaret Fulton probably has a set of picnic coasters. She'd certainly know what to pack for one - a picnic that is. This is the 1983 edition of her cookery bible, bought for $6 from a Salvos store. While I am not going to tick off all the recipes in a Julie and Julia-style culinary blitz I have made the apple tea cake and swear by Fulton's pavlova recipe. So many to try. I can't even imagine cooking them all in one lifetime. Fulton's a machine. When pondering mealtimes in our house, any domestic chore in fact, we ask, what would Margaret do? And damn her, if her encyclopedia doesn't always have an answer.
