Monday Meal Ideas: Show week!

Good morning friends! I can already feel that everyone is a little cranky that it’s Monday morning (myself included). Even though we had a lovely quiet weekend, one more day wouldn’t have gone astray – and I think some of you have a long weekend too today? Victoria maybe? You guys are so lucky with the long weekends…we never seem to have as many as you! If you are lucky enough to have an extra day off – hope you soak up every moment.

For the rest of us, it’s business as usual, EXCEPT that this week is SHOW WEEK! Our local country show is on this weekend and that means time to get my entries in again. Who can forget last year and my date loaf getting SECOND prize in a one horse race (mine was the only entry). So cruel and still something I laugh about. So it’s time to get cooking again and at least try and take out a better spot than last year.

Here are some of my classic show recipes that have won me ribbons before and I know that have won lots of ribbons for you guys out there at your own country shows.

LEMON BUTTER
DATE LOAF
PICKLED CUCUMBERS
CHOCOLATE CAKE
DATE SCONES
GINGER FLUFF

And if you’d like to read a little about precious years you can in these posts:

2017 SHOW DEBRIEF
2016 SHOW DEBRIEF
2014 SHOW DEBRIEF
2013 SHOW DEBRIEF
2012 SHOW DEBRIEF
2011 SHOW DEBRIEF

Hope that you all have a great week. I have a feeling it’s going to be a busy one – lots of work to get done and lots of show prep as well as school work and one very tired Kinder who is absolutely exhausted. Fingers crossed we all get through to the other side alive…I fear there will be some tantrums ahead!

Have a great week friends x

  1. Every year I see you post about the local show I think “ yep, this is the year I’m going to have a go in our local show” & then I always forget until it’s too bloody late! I really must get into it earlier…..good luck!

  2. Best of luck Beth. I know you can get at least one of those blue ribbons. What a shocker last year was 🌸 🎀

  3. Happy show week Beth!
