The food magazines on my bookshelf dated back to year 2001. I dont usually keep all my food mags, only the ones which I know I will use it over and over again. I discovered that depending on circumstances or stage in life, different recipes appeal to me.
Like for instance, I obtained this recipe from Australian Food Ideas, dated Sept 2004. That was nearly 4 years ago. During that time, my tastebuds were still accustomed to asian cusine and not experimental or brave enough to venture out to other food types. Well, I did make an occasional pasta dish but not as frequent as now.
This recipe did not take much effort. Best of all, it’s budget!!!!! I used organic/free range chicken sausages because I’m paranoid about not knowing what goes into the sausage meat (blame it on Current affairs/Today Tonight) and still, it turned out to be less than AU$10 for more than 4 servings.
