  • Ohhh yum!!! I can taste the juicy steak from the photo! Haha


  • Had a great BBQ – but I am salivating at the pictures posted here.


  • We had a BBQ with lots of salads. A massive pavlova and lots of lamingtons. Had a fantastic day


  • I made a lovely big green salad, and had a bbq disaster – very unlike me, so had to run out and get KFC chicken boo hoo


  • I love all of these options. Probably have a sausage sizzle.


  • All of these are making my mouth water. We’re spending a few days down the beach so our meal options will be simpler as there will only be 3 of us. So, not much fuss.


  • Unfortunately I’ll be sleeping. I’m on nightshift so will have to have a special breakfast instead. Probably sausages and eggs


  • The proposed increase in prawns is because of diseased prawns being imported from overseas. In some cases tiny ones have been used as bait and have contaminated prawns in other waters.
    Over the years there has been some heated debates whether Pavlova originates from Aust. or NZ. I don’t care which it is.


  • I always get tasked with making ice cream sandwiches and I always come up with a version that is a tribute to the celebration. This year I am making lamington ice cream sandwiches… stay tuned!


  • I’ve no plans yet for Australia day, let alone Australia Days lunch.

    • Just heard I will be in the hospital with Australia Day ! My youngest will be operated at her heart.


  • My every sympathy to every woman that has ever endured a miscarriage – I walk with you. x

    • Sorry – this posted in the wrong section.


  • So many great ideas here for Australia Day,l like the marinated chops and pavlova!


  • Was thinking prawns, but at the proposed price increase maybe I’ll go back to lamb.


  • Australia Day is my son’s birthday so we will have what ever he decides, he is 3 this year so I am thinking probably chocolate and popcorn and apple juice (arple juice) hahah


  • Yummo! So many scrummy foods to be devoured on Australia Day. Can’t beat a BBQ and salads

    • I agree – sitting outside and relaxing with friends and family and enjoying the smells of the bbq.
