Is it bird? Is it a plane?
No, it's the Cheese Monkeys!
Christmas crackers bring big smiles all around
Our Christmas day lunch/dinner involved lots of seafood, salads and ham.
Of course, some bubbly was requisite (very affordable but delicious South Australian Croser).
After Christmas, we spent lots of time at the beach. On a not so sunshiny day though, we went out and found a classic Aussie milk bar burger. Forget wagyu or brioche, this burger is decidedly ungourmet. But one bite will take you back to summers past. It's definitely the kind of burger you eat only on holidays and that's why it tastes so good.
Give up yet? For the unitiated, these silver pilows are the "bladders" from inside a cask of wine. All washed and dried (I hope), and cleverly recycled. I'm guessing this is probably not something you'll see on Martha Stewart :)
Wishing all of you a safe and happy start to 2011, see you on the other side :)
Over and out from all of us at The Skewer residence!
