Aussie Sunday Lunch

The International Office and school chaplain here at Southern Cross University arranged an Aussie Sunday Lunch outing for interested international students to spend an afternoon having lunch with and getting to know a local family. I and another student spent the afternoon with Michelle and Gary, two lovely locals who cooked us a fantastic meal! We started (ha! Started…) with prawns (whole shrimp) and grilled bread. Course #2 included grilled chicken wings, lamb, pork ribs, and a South African sausage (Michelle and Gary are both originally from South Africa), a delicious Mediterranean-style salad, rice with veggies, and to-die-for baked potatoes. It didn’t stop there, though. We finished with homemade vanilla ice cream and fresh berries. Needless to say, I was stuffed. They have invited us over for dinner Easter weekend and I may just have to say yes. I’m finally experiencing four years of college life in one semester and it’ll be months before I eat like that again. :)
Viewed on this side: meat and potatoes (most delicious potatoes ever)

View from their back yard. They often see an abundance of avifauna and wallabies (similar to a kangaroo but smaller)
