Mushroom Meatballs

  • Posted on July 10, 2010 at 6:11 AM

Some people have a problem with using tinned soups as the base for a meal. Most of those same people do not have a problem with opening a jar of ready made simmer sauce. If you think about it logically, there is no difference. Tinned soup was the pre-cursor to today’s Chicken Tonight and similar. The Sisters would not use tinned soup every day but feel that these soups do have their place in the kitchen for the odd easy meal.

Always a winner, the Mushroom Meatballs recipe that is ever popular in Julia’s house was given to her by her mother-in-law. It originally came from the label of a tin of condensed mushroom soup. Not strictly speaking a road test as such, Julia has tweaked the recipe and makes her meatballs in a very specific way using grated carrot, zucchini, onion and garlic.

Sensible Sisters' Anti-Lavender Stance…

  • Posted on July 8, 2010 at 6:10 AM

Lavender is a very pervasive fragrance. Especially the synthetic variety which is so prevalent at the moment in all sorts of cleaning products from washing powder to toilet cleaner and disinfectant to hand wash. One can even buy lavender scented products to use on his or her person…

The Sensible Sisters do not like the lavender fragrance.

Family Favourite – Tuna Bake

  • Posted on July 4, 2010 at 6:09 AM

One of Julia’s family’s favourite meals is Tuna Bake.

Made with a combination of leftover vegetables and rice covered in a mornay sauce, it is a delicious dinner.

Easy to make as you only need to make the mornay sauce and assemble if you follow the suggestions about keeping and using leftovers to make it.

Winter is well and truly here!

This last week has been particularly hard. It has been very cold and caught quite a few people by surprise. In Sydney we are hearing statistics such as ‘coldest June morning in 23 years’ and ‘coldest June day in 27 years’ with outlying areas enduring sub-zero temperatures over night.

School holidays are fast approaching, in NSW at least.

The Sensible Sisters thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of holiday suggestions. They live in Sydney so some of the activities are geared toward specific Sydney sights.

During July the weather can be quite wet so it is a good idea to have some specific indoor activities planned for those rainy days.

The Sensible Sisters have come up with a list of 10 suggestions for School Holiday Fun.
