Groovy, baby! A retro recipe revival

Hellooooo 1978!

It's been an interesting few months. Andrew and I started 2016 with a magnificent trip to Japan, then I went through several months of uncertainty about whether I would still have a job (I do for now), then we moved house. Our 'new' place was built in 1978 and I'm feeling nostalgic about the 1970s. The house itself still has a '70s vibe so I've found myself seeking out clothes and foods from the era lately ...

boeuf bourguignon
crème brûlée
tomato fondue
camembert tarts
onion dip
bacon and egg pies
cheesy baked potatoes
pumpkin bread
lemon meringue pie
Afghan biscuits
lolly cake

I'm even thinking of making a few macramé plant hangers for our new place. Whaddya think?
