Lamingtons for Australia Day

Since it is Australia day I thought that I would make lamingtons for the family.  I don't think our children have eaten them before and I have never made them either.  So I braved it and once they were tucked up in bed I gave it a go.  I followed the Woman's day recipe.  It was very easy.

My conclusion: very messy and very yummy.

Not sure that I would get great marks for presentation but I think they taste yummy.

All the family is getting together to celebrate.  My BAM's mother is receiving an Australia Day award.  I am not sure what sort of award as she has been very shy about it.  I guess we will find out.  She has told us all to dress in our best and to PLEASE make sure her one and only granddaughter wears a pretty dress and not the Ben 10 shorts and sneakers.  However her granddaughter is very stubborn and if she doesn't want to wear the dress she won't.

To  finish off the day the kids will play totem tennis, jump on the trampoline and Mummy and Daddy and Auntie Cathy will sit under the pergola cooking the BBQ for tea.
