In a time-honoured Aussie tradition, we had some barbecued prawn (among other yummies) for lunch on Australia Day last month. (and in a Kendra-honoured tradition, it's a bit overdue)
While one might think that prawn and shrimp are the same thing, in my humble opinion, they are quite different. I am not a fan of shrimp (and never have been), but I have had some prawn here that is quite tasty. And it's not just the taste either, the texture's different too. Well, to me anyway. ;-)
peeled, seasoned, and grilling to perfection!
Our dear friend, the barbecue master!
note the cooked snags (sausages) and burgers on the side
oh, and a little pan to cook some egg in for the burgers!
Ya gotta love an Aussie burger.

lookin' good, love!
That's not good form.
Back away from the prawns.
inspired by Masterchef, I think.
it's got a bit of everything (except the snag)
burger w/ egg (on the bottom), prawn, fried rice
lamb, and a tasty salad with a coke!
What a spread!
Thank you, Tyler family!

The kids have started back to school for the new school year. They're both entering a new phase of schooling as well. D is beginning his 'higher' school years (11 & 12) which will end in a big test. B is starting high school at a new school. So far, it's going well. New adventures for both of them. (and more letting go for me... hmmm...)
First day of school
full uniform... well, except the hat.

so far, favourite class = French!
thankfully, still humouring mum. ;-)
he might be laughing at me...
They make me one proud Momma!
