Now how does that jingle go?
Bean, beans, the musical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot
The more you toot, the better you feel
So let's have beans for every meal!
My dad taught me that when I was a wee little tyke.
Anyways, this post has nothing to do with that.
This post is about me tooting my own horn!
I put this up on my food blog today, but I figured since I've got 5 times the visitors over here that I'd make you people read it too. So there.
Biggest Morning Tea
Each year, the Biology dept up at our local Flinders Uni hosts what they like to call "The Biggest Morning Tea". It only costs $4 to get in (that's just a couple of Aussie $2 coins). All the cooking is done on a volunteer basis.
My BIL works at the Paleo lab in the Bio dept so he's on their email list. Last week he received an urgent email asking for more cooking-type folks. So far only 4 people had volunteered, and none of them featured any savory dishes.
Mike (BIL) told them about my cooking prowess, and I got in email contact with the lady in charge. She is very thrilled with what I said I could make for them.
Here's the list of what I'll be making between now (monday arvo) and thurs morn:
Cheese and bacon muffins
soft pretzels w/ cheese sauce
mexican chocolate fondue
cumin seed crackers
wholemeal chia seed bread w/sunflower and pumpkin seeds
morrocan seasoned pan bread w/ grana padana cheese
fresh homemade ricotta cheese (it's easier than you think) to go with the cumin crackers and whatever.
They are expecting 100 to 150 people... This will be challenging, especially as MIL has a couple of doctor appointments this week.
Wish me luck folks!
Oh, the proceeds from it go directly the Flinders Med Centre (right next to the U) for their cancer research.
