I figured I’d just post a quick picture of my amazing Dad, Bill, and his almost as amazing mincemeat I mentioned in the Five Roses post. This is the Mincemeat without Suet recipe that shows up in most of the books, and it’s my favourite mincemeat ever! He offered me a jar to take home, but I don’t want to sit down and eat a jar of mincemeat with a spoon, so I’ll wait ’til he makes his tarts. I can’t wait for mince tart season!
The most amazing part of his mincemeat (and bread, and buns, and everything else he cooks) is that when my sisters and I were little, if Mom was away, we knew that it meant porridge or scrambled eggs on toast, three meals a day, because that was all he could cook until he retired!
Yes, Dad, you’re now an internet celebrity!!
