Having just arrived home from a lovely driving visit interstate with family and friends I came across a refreshing recipe. It would be wonderful as an entree or for a gathering of friends and supper. Light, but I would say very moorish.
I would add a delicate sprig of fresh Dill as well for its wonderful scent and aroma.
My dream raised garden
Dill brings back memories of my dear mother when she still had her own garden and little herb patch. Whenever we visited Mum always chopped up some Dill and added it to her wonderful mixed salad and home made dressing….between us three girls there would almost be arguments over who got more of this delicious trademark salad
Here is this refreshing recipe of Salmon Rillettes
Alternatively you could experiment just with some smoked salmon and flake it instead of the fish stated in Downtownshift.
I seem to recall a friend of mine does this, or is it potted shrimp…..Keren if you are reading, is this how your mum makes her dip?
…and so I’ll sign off for now and maybe do a bit of unpacking. The painful part at the end of a trip…..but I have many wonderful memories which will spur me on:)

There is a saying ..Life is a journey. With many a detour, hold ups, unpredictableness, joys, throw your hands up in the air situations along the way. Each one is a step. Remembering those maybe tantrum hard days with children and then at day’s end as they lie sleeping peacefully in their beds you take […] Continue reading →

Reflection… Now this story started after our birthday cum Father’s Day family get together this last weekend. I was thinking back to our lovely time spent together. Then I thought “O bother” now why didn’t I take a photo of the lovingly laid out table. So a hasty email was sent “Hi Paula, any chance […] Continue reading →
