I've been fortunate enough to meet some nice locals here in Melbourne while working at the Australian Open. Simon and Emily, a lovely couple who are to be married at the end of the year, invited us to their home for a real Aussie barbie.
Simon expertly grilled different meats on the barbie.
We had snags (sausages) on white bread with tomato sauce (ketchup), macaroni salad, potato salad, chicken wings, lamb, and Caesar salad. It was all quite yummy!
Our guest, a little Australian possum, wanted us to share the feast.
The food and company were great, but my favorite part about my first Aussie barbie was meeting Jemma, Simon and Emily's cat.
She was shy until I broke out the camera, then she wanted to pose.
