Happy Australia Day

Gorgeous morning on the (harbourside) beach at Neilsen Park.... with thousands of other happy Australians enjoying a beautiful summer day. I've never seen this beach so crowded. But the water was cool and refreshing.



Then the afternoon at my sisters-in-law's place for the obligatory roast lamb (butterflied in the BBQ), potato salad and an english spinach salad also.  I made this for dessert - a perfect summer dish. Pavlova Roll with Strawberries, Raspberries, Basil and Balsmaic Vinegar.  Saw it a few weeks ago on Better Homes and Garden and thought we'd make it. see this link for the recipe - http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/better-homes-gardens/tv/watch/-/6796388/pavlova-roll/

I love how fresh it looked. And I managed to not eat any....


I'm so grateful for being born in this wonderful country!
