Ham and Macaroni Bake

macaroni

Ham and Macaroni Bake is an easy Sunday night meal. I usually have freeze the leftovers for an even easier meal at a later date.

250gm macaroni

sliver of butter

1 onion – chopped

ham – chopped (a few slices are enough, but put in whatever you have)

375ml tin of evaporated milk

1/2 Cup water

1 Tblspn cornflour

grated cheese (about a cup, give or take)

tomatoes – thinly sliced (again, the amount is up to you)

1/2 Cup breadcrumbs

extra butter

Cook the macaroni and drain.

Heat the butter in a big pot and cook the onions. Add the ham and combined evaporated milk, water and cornflour and bring to the boil while stirring. Add half of the cheese and all of the pasta and mix well.

Pour the mixture into a deep tray (I line the tray with my favourite invention, baking paper). Top the mixture with the sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with breadcrumbs, then put dobs of butter on top and grill until golden brown.

Chryslers by the Bay 2017

GG7

Chryslers by the Bay is an annual show held at Geelong Grammar School every March.

Prince Charles attended school at Geelong Grammar while he was in the Colonies. I doubt he ever spent a Saturday night in a Drifter panel van sneaking into the drive-in, but you never know.

The show is open to Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, Desoto, Valiant, AMC powered or bodied vehicles.

 

The colour-change paint on the vehicle below looked different from every angle.

The bright colours of the muscle cars really stood out against the lush, green grass on the oval.

There was a time in Australia when every young man needed a fox tail hanging from his car’s antenna to have credibility with his mates.
