My perfect Australia Day? Involves a smashing breakfast, a drive in the countryside, and a BBQ on the deck. Preferably with a cold beer in my hand.
Oh, I love this place.
Coconut waffles with bananas and mango jam for breakfast
(you don't have to share. the blue-tongues understand)
Need a snack? Chocolate avocado smoothies out of a thermos.
Then home, to fire up the Barbie ...
Choose grillables like broccoli, corn, sustainable seafood, or pizza made from naans or flatbreads
Drink fresh lemonade
(spiked or not)
Mix it up with some fresh slaw or a crispy salad.
By the pool, if you have one. (Because it's summer, after all)
Do not forget the lemon potatoes ...
Or the ginger cookies.
And what's Australia Day without pavlova? Or, as I favour, meringues slathered with fresh, whipped cream and passionfruit pulp.
I ♥ Australia.
