How Blessed am I??? Remember last week I mentioned that my Muffin Tin was old and embarrassing??? Then Look what arrived during the week!!! It was meant to be anonymous...But various reasons meant the Person was no longer anonymous... SO THANK YOU ZAN!! I don't think I have ever had such a sweet thoughtful gift after mentioning a need/want in my life!

So todays Muffin Tin Monday from Sycamore Stirrings had to have a party theme. Since most contributors/participants are not Australian, I thought I would do some Iconic "Australian" Party food

Lamington, Fairy Bread, Pikelet with Jam and Cream
Sausage in Bread, Fairy Bread, Pikelet with Jam and Cream

Second Tin had rice crackers, grapes, cashew nuts, chocolate Biscuits
We had a great Muffin Tin Party :)

How to make Lamingtons
How to make Fairy Bread
Sausage in Bread- We do sausage sizzles for anything in Australia - Schools, Fund raising, parties, BBQ's - for anything basically because it is cheap... Cook sausages (these are chicken ones) place in sliced bread with tomato sauce - A Poor Mans Hot Dog!
How to make Pikelets

Obviously I don't make Fairy bread often enough... .my girls begged for more and were so excited!! Actually, even I had some... YUM!! Takes you back to Childhood.. its been a while :)

Even though I bought the pikelets and lamingtons, the above foods are all easy to make...

Thanks for showing all of us in the U.S. what you eat for fun Australian food. I love the fairy bread, how easy and cute. We love the movie A Fairy Tale, that would be a sweet treat to munch while watching the movie.

Bobbie, I LOVE your blog! So fun & inspiring to read.

We are actually living right in Nauvoo (in Illinois). It is a little bit in the middle of nowhere, but yes, there are lots of small and medium sized towns nearby, and bigger ones, like Chicago & St Louis, not too far. When did you come to the pageant? Was it in the last three years, since the new one was created?
