Australian food- oh how I miss thee!

From yummy pies, sausages rolls and farmer union ice coffee to lamingtons Tim tams and Vegemite. Australia food is like nothing else.

When you start dreaming of pies you realize you have a problem.

Food in California is good and yummy but you can’t beat the Aussie food goodness.

So how do I beat this I ask myself? Well I think it is time to embrace my inner chef and make some Aussie food.

So with that said the first recipe will be the meat pie. Not something I have made before but will give it ago. I will put pictures up of the complete product.

The other thing I miss is Australia wine. My favorite wine is the Sauvignon Blanc. I love nothing more than a crisp, delicious s. Blanc from the Adelaide Hill. My favorite is Shaw & Smith. This type of grape wine can be found in north California but it doesn’t have the same taste and flavor. So if anyone has some California wine suggestions let me know.

Today is the start of the labour day weekend so that means the weekend is upon us.

Well until I make pies and find wine. I will have to stick to bubbly and pretzels.

Happy Labour Day weekend!

    My sister Betty and I often talk about how much we loved the Australian meat pie when we lived in Australia as children. Today I am gluten-free…so I should figure out a pie crust for that lovely pie. Cousin Dottie was the master of many other pies. Look forward to the recipe. xo
