  1. Local South Coast Butchers Pantry was the supplier. Buy pies with pastry uncooked and cook at home. They make Beef, Chicken and Leek, and Lamb and Vegetable pies as well as lots of other easy meals. My go to place.
  2. Back to pies. Last night I needed some comfort food so this lamb and vegetable pie made its way to the table. Serving is not my forte. Glass of shiraz to wash it down.
  3. I only seem to get recorded message ones and I have learnt that if you pick up and say nothing the call is terminated. It is your voice that activates the recording. They seem to eventually give up.
  4. The Sydney Rock Oysters with finger lime are delicious, but I would eat any of them and they are at a special price for regular locals.
  5. Local oyster collection from Jim Wilde's Oysters. Take your pick.
  6. Love my oysters raw and fresh from our local oyster growers. They do sell Kilpatricks and mornay to takeaway and cook at home.
  7. NSWP No Supper Without Peas (mushie of course).
  8. Is Harry's growing to fast? Just checked on their website and they now have 10 outlets in NSW. I remember when it was a special outing to go to Harry's. Two new outlets opening next month including Harry's Café de Wheels - Bomaderry. The temptation will be too great.
  9. Same story as Uncle Les. Wife passed away and in less than 48hrs Centrelink emailed me to say my Pension and health cards were gone. Thanks to Uncle Les I knew what to do when they when they cancelled my Opal card. Life goes on just not as sweet.
  10. Last weekend I drove from Greenwell Point to Newcastle and back. The M7 and M2 were at a stand still. Travel took 5hrs 20 mins on the way up but only 4hrs 5 mins on the way back. Pennant Hills Road was the least of my problems.
  11. We had a port, two sherries, moselle, reisling and claret. Says something about drinking in those days.
  12. In the 70's I worked part-time in a drive through bottle shop in Albury. People used to bring in their flagons and we would refill them from a barrel. Even cheaper that way. Most of the barrels came from Rutherglen wineries. Those were the days.
  13. After listening to Dan I must congratulate him and all Victorians for what they have achieved. Things can only get better.
  14. Our last Maasdam cruise was December/January. Sue's secondary cancer was diagnosed two weeks later. I really can't remember that much about that cruise.
