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:)

WHO…World Heath Organisation A bit of trivia information for you today… Google was my friend today taking me to Wikipedia, every man’s fount of knowledge and easy to understand. There I just learnt that on April 7 every year W.H.O. celebrates “world health day”. This commenced in 1950 being the year before I was born….and […] Continue reading →

What of this day… With our typical Sydney summer’s day of blue sky and cicadas shrilling away in the background, I pause for a moment to reflect on the last few happy but busy family days. Some vibrant jewel coloured Gerbera flowers in a bouquet given by a little hand. Red and orange and yellow […] Continue reading →
“A climber anchoring his stanchions deeply into a secure crevasse knowing his life depends on that one point. As he struggles to climb an overhanging ledge he pins his hopes on that last anchor point. He knows he will only fall as far as that last secure point.” Even scripture gives this lesson in Hebrews […] Continue reading →
