I’m Susan and I live in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, in Australia. I’ve made a couple of posts previously and appreciate the very kind welcome that was extended to me by members of this forum at that time.
I haven’t posted any further on this thread because most of the posts here include photos and I’m really much more of a writer than than a photographer.
But today I thought that even without photos, it might interest some of you to read about real-life Australian food and day to day cooking, rather than the “throw a shrimp on the barbie” kind of stuff that the film industry and media promote.
So here we go!
Tonight Chris (partner) and I are having Slow Cooker Potato Chowder. At Chris’ request there will be a poached egg involved in his in some way (egg on soup? #gofigure). This was my fault. I should never have told him that such a thing exists. There will be no egg on my chowder.
To turn it into a full meal, there will also be cheese/pepperoni/green bell pepper (called capsicum in Australia) grilled sandwiches for Chris and something involving smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers and lemon juice for me.
