Culinary Advice for the New Bride

So we visited the Old Gaol in Alice Springs which was also home to the Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame - quite a lovely little exhibit with lots of information on the women who were the first settlers of Central Australia.

Amongst their displays of early kitchen utensils and sewing machines - they had a poster featuring this little quote from The Antipodean Cookery Book and Kitchen Companion - 1895.
Mr Tchotchke was rather taken with it - and lucky for him there was a print available in the gift shop for the princely sum of 25c.

She's a pretty hard taskmaster, old Mrs Lance Rawson - no burnt dinners after two weeks? Sheesh.

And I haven't been able to get a word in edgeways about my new bonnet.
