So today is Australia Day, and that means like a lot of other people around the country (sorry if you aren’t one), I get the day off work and the chance to enjoy a little mid-week break. While the Mr and I didn’t think we’d do anything special for the day, an impromptu decision made last night saw us finally buy ourselves a BBQ. I can think of no better way to spend Australia Day than with some food cooked over open flame … YUM!!
While the Mr was busy constructing the flatpack BBQ, I took some time to check on the garden produce. As you can see our little lemon tree is going well, and our strawberries are not too far away from fruiting.
Our marigolds are also starting to bloom, with all their bright yellow and orange flowers adding a cheery touch to the back deck.
Once the instructions for building the BBQ had been mastered, we were all ready to go with our first BBQ meal of the day – vegetarian sausages and fried onion on bread! Even Baxter the dog was excited about the BBQ-ing process (I think I managed to capture a picture of the exact moment when he realised there was fried goodness soon to be made available).
Our meal can really only be summed up with one word – ‘delicious’. In case you were wondering, Baxter also enjoyed a veggie sausage all of his own – we’re just that kind of caring, sharing household. If you were here, we would have shared one with you too!
Wherever you are in the world – celebrating Australia Day or not, did you find something fun to do today?
