It’s Australia Day! Meat pies and tomato sauce…..you little beauty!

Yesterday (Sunday) 26th January was Australia Day and for an Aussie living in England, there was no way that I wasn’t going to have a drink (or two) today to celebrate my wonderful homeland.  We had a huge party on the Saturday night in Maidenhead….. and after a fantastic breakfast at the hotel the next morning, my massive hangover was beginning to ease up a little.  After a bit of a rest, we were off again for drinks (nothing like the hair of the dog!) at our local pub to toast all Australians around the world.  We came back to the barn and I finished off making our home made Aussie Meat Pies which we served with a good dollop of tomato sauce and peas……..just needed a footy match and we would have felt right at home! but hearing the Australian Cricket team beat England in the one dayer was good enough for me.  Poor England…….
