Sheeps Head Soup

We found a hundred year old cookbook at the holiday house. "The Goulburn cookery book", compiled by Mrs Forster Rutledge.
First published: 1899

Life in the Australian bush was remote and difficult. The population was low and spread thinly over vast distances. The difficulties of obtaining materials, storing and preserving food and facing the daily challenges and dangers of life created the "Australian Character". This was a classic book of that era. Check out some of the recipes

I have no fucking idea what you are saying - but I sure like her head - If anybody ever wants to make me a robot this is the kind of head I like.

Life's sometimes not quite what you expect..

I always wanted to be a great dad. Really actively involved with the kids, teaching, guiding them. I always thought that by being there that they would be great kids too.
I still think I am and that they are. Just perhaps not in the way I thought it would be.

The way it was imagined.The way it turned out
Happy school kids running to mum or dad's arms after school, over sized school bag bouncing from side to side.Parent: "come on, we have to go"
Parent: "come on, bring your drawing, you can finish it at home"
Parent: "If you don't come now [insert threat now]"
Child: "coming"
Parent: "Where's your school bag ?"
Happy kids eating eating a huge variety of nutritious food. No junk foodHaving to bring our own cheese to any sort of nibbles tpe get together because our kids will devour a block of brie and eat every olive in site, however when it comes to healthy foods one will eat one, perhaps two vegetables and the other will eat anything - but only ever half of what you put in front of her (except brie)
Happy kids playing togetherChild 1: "it's mine"
Child 2: "it's mine"
Child 2: "it's mine"
Child 1: "it's mine"
Happy kids happily doing what their parents askParent: "It's time to [insert task]."
Parent: "Come on, It's time to [insert task]."
Parent: "LISTEN !!!!, THIS IS THE LAST TIME, [insert demand] or [insert threat] ."

This is why I had a happy child at dinner last night, eating vegies, finishing all their food and not getting rice everywhere (strapped to their chair with two parents yelling).

Could be worse, I could end up on this list.
