Eating round the world for 20 days in lockdown, day 12 Australia

Eating round the world for 20 days in lockdown, day 12 Australia

Having lived in Oz for over 7 months, I feel like this is a home-coming. Sitting outside in the sunshine with a kettle BBQ as the sun sets, putting another shrimp on the barby, mate this is easy living. It’s relaxed eating, the burgers are delicious and healthy so no guilt required. Just remember to light the charcoal at least 30 minutes before you need to start cooking. And to complete the meal, we will be making BBQ chocolate bananas wrapped in foil parcels and popcorn over the BBQ. This requires two metal cooking sieves wired together and attached to a pole! It’s fun and having time to discover such culinary delights is a true luxury.

Popcorn made over the BBQ with 2 metal cooking sieves, wire together and wire to a pole. Add a little butter or toffee sauce if you are making with popcorn but if instead you use one packet of microwave popcorn you will not need to add the butter. Enjoy your outdoor feast.
