Menu planning advice from the dark ages!

Many, many years ago, (in the dark ages) when I was still at school, we had a subject called Home Economics (now approximately linked to Consumer studies). Now, please don’t question why, I have a Std 7 (Grade 5) Home Economics book from 1992 (I was long gone from school by then). In it is […]
