Happy Australia Day Everyone!

Australia Day Hamburgers

You’ve got to hand it to those butchers at Woolworths. It’s pretty hard walking past these hamburgers on Australia Day. Now I just need to find some Australia shaped bread rolls πŸ˜€

For some recommended Australia Day reading:

Karen‘s interview with ProBlogger Darren Rowse
Some Great Australia photos (including one of mine πŸ˜‰ )
How do you tell if you are a True Aussie?

Lightening is also having a competition to give away some Australian products – stickers, socks and undies bandana (I must look closer at images πŸ˜‰ ) . So you might want to mosey over and have a look.

    ROFLOL!!!! Those burgers look too good to eat. Wonder what happens to Australia when you put it on the bbq – does it shrink??? Does it hold it’s shape???? Could make for an interesting Australia Day test don’t you think? :)

    Thanks for giving my comp a mention Meg! :) LOL at the undies….I can see what you mean!!!! Of course, a bandana *could* be used for emergency underwear now couldn’t it??? After all, isn’t it supposed to be the most versatile piece of “clothing” one can own???? :)

    Boo saw those last week and begged me to buy them for him.

    But was hysterical when I went to cook them!

    We have some more ready for our celebration on Monday. The public holiday! LMAO

    Happy Australia Day babe!

    The burgers DID shrink, and were barely recognisable as Australia after cooking. But a cute novelty nonetheless :)

    Lightening – no worries about the plug – yes I reckon the bandana could be used as undies, it would have to be a REAL emergency though!

    Hope you all enjoyed the holiday break.

    Ours shrunk too but were a tasty improvement on the shoe leather The Spouse served last year lol πŸ˜‰

    Shouldn’t these burgers be made outta something more “Australian” – like Ostrich or Emu? Now that would sound more authentic-Aussi (IMHO)!

    I reckon they’d shrink during cooking and end up looking more like Tasmania than the whole of Australia! πŸ˜›

    The meat wasn’t fantastic quality but it was so cute eating mini-australias! They shrunk but not by too much. Although one of our camping buddies complained there wasn’t a Tasmania… πŸ˜›

    Lol, what amused me most is where did they get the moulds and what else are they likely to put in them? Are you going to get: Oz shaped ice creams; Oz shaped soap; Oz shaped Cheese?

    Hi Anita

    No – had to suffice with boring old round ones!

    So what was the mince made from? Kangaroos?

    No, good ol’ Aussie beef. Actually, I’m not that fond of kangaroo, I much prefer crocodile :).

    We regularly buy Aussie shaped crumbed schnitzels from Safeway (Woolworths) – nearly always to the cries from my youngest of “but where is Tasmania”. I sometimes buy some chicken nuggets to put on the bottom to appease him :-)
