Oh, frabjous day!

Not all recent news from Australia are bleak. Today I received, from the lovely and gracious Suse, not one, but TWO Australian foodie magazines: Gourmet Traveller and Donna Hay Magazine.

Suse: You know that if it were allowable (and feasible) I'd send you the complete crop of bananas from my very own yard. You are a princess.

I am inexpressively thrilled and grateful.

MWAH!

    Oo oo - is it the March issue of Gourmet? Which has crab cakes, vanilla passionfruit slice and a feature on Southern American food?

    Alas, no. It is the Feb. issue, with some sort of tomato tart thing on the cover.

    Which reminds me that I meant to get some crabmeat (wishing to have crabcakes on Friday) and I completely blanked on the matter.

    Dammit.

    No Kim, I sent him the February issue because as everyone knows, February is always the FAST AND SIMPLE issue.

    Mwah ha ha ha ha.

    Ahem.

    Oh, and Joke, we have bananas again at $2 per kilo. Praise the lord. So thank you for kind offer but we are overdosing on nanas happily once more.

    I would very much like to know how you make crab cakes. I have never made them before but always wanted to.

    Kim,

    I'll try to post the recipe. It's dead simple stuff. (Crabmeat, some sort of bread, mayo, seasonings...shaped into a thickish disk and pan-fried.)

    Details to ensue.
