Caught up with my cousin who greeted me with a share pack of Tim Tams (thumbs up) and a jar of Vegemite (major thumbs down). There's no escaping Vegemite Sandwiches this time.

Happily, have managed to stave off the sandwich horror with a series of post-breakfast breakfasts. How does this work? Breakfast # 1 is with Grandma. Sometimes a bowl of soup, followed by some fruit, perhaps washed down with some passion fruit yogurt. At least there are no cakes and biscuits this time around. Breakfast # 2 is with my cousin and includes coffee and today, a jaffle meat pie. I still don't quite have a handle on what a jaffle pie is, suffice to say that the crust is a bit less substantive than a standard meat pie, and it includes mashed potatoes wrapped in the crust - quite like a cornish pasty, but shaped like a flying saucer. Better yet are the humorous double-chambered tomato sauce (or TS, as I'm supposed to say) packets so you can control how much TS to have with the pie.

On tomorrow's Aussie barbie (not a doll) featuring a works burger and other grilled delights....bring on the beetroot.

Well, it could be worse. You could be subjected to scrapple.
