Do you have a signature dish? If not is their one in your family?
There are a few favourite recipes that we grew up with that we still make although I hesitate to call them signature dishes. Mine would probably be my Christmas mince pies which I’ve made every year since about 1971. The recipe I’ve used for most of that time, is from my Margaret Fulton Cookbook. I reposted it last week. You can find it here
Do you have a favorite board game?
I like a lot of board games. Monopoly, Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit are some of my favourites. On Christmas Day my sister said she would bring some board games with her for us to play after lunch and the one I asked for her to bring was Scattergories which is a big favourite of both of us. We often play list type games with each other. We used to do it when we worked together and once we entertained ourselves on a bus trip to Sydney trying to list every Elvis Presley movie ever made.
Is there a household chore that you enjoy?
Well I don’t really enjoy household chores. I’d rather be doing something else but I do get a feeling of satisfaction from completing some task and seeing the result like today when I cleaned out and defrosted the fridge and freezer.
What is one thing you will never care about?
Celebrity gossip. I really don’t care what the Kardashians do. People who are just famous for being famous bore me silly.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’ve been enjoying watching a lot of cricket on television for the past week or two and that has kept my mind occupied at times when I’ve been worrying about things. I’m looking forward to seeing my sister on Christmas Day as we haven’t seen each other for about three months, a long time for us. I’m also looking forward to catching up with friends who are visiting from Melbourne after Christmas. And I’m looking forward to more cricket of course both on television and my first chance to watch the Hobart Hurricanes live at Blundstone Arena.
