EVERY DAY ~Ul, Oil, tnavel aCCSSOUlS SRVIC OUR motto cxawJ'KS There have been some very favourable comments on the last few recipes from my Queensland cuisinieres, so here is another beauty. I made double the quantity suggested in the recipe given to me - and even then the only complaint was that there weren't enough~ One usually staid colleague even went so far as to misappropriate a few for his special friends. I'm sure they enjoyed them. I was told in advance that they were "really very delicious". So thanks to Jean Freeman of Brisbane for this week's delicacy: Jean's Cheese Scones 2 cups Self-Raising flour. A pinch of salt l~ cups grated cheese 2 grated onions 2 eggs and milk mixed to make l~ cups. Mix all together in mixer until all blended. DroB into greased patty pans in a hot oven - 500 F. for about 10 minutes. GORDON BLUE C.W.A. NEWS A successful Mothers Day Fair was held last Saturday morning.
