Today is the day we celebrate the beginning of modern Australia with the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788!
There is a lot of discussion this year, particularly since the naming of an aboriginal Australian of the Year, about whether January 26th should be celebrated at all. I for one think it should, but there should also be another day (a celebration? acknowledgment?) which is more inclusive of indigenous Australians.
To me Australia Day says hot weather, bbqs, the JJJ Hottest 100 and lots of sport on tv. We spent the day moving practically every piece of furniture we own in a big switcheroo that will make room for our new bub (who will be here in just 12 weeks!!!)
No recipes today, but we really enjoyed our lunch of homemade sausage rolls and potato salad. Yum!
