Woohoo! My first post for 2016! Yikes, where does the time go to these days? It seems that one day I am packing for an exciting overseas Christmas holiday and the next I am getting ready to celebrate Australia Day.
“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!
Happy Australia Day for tomorrow everyone! A day of celebrating and paying respect to our rich and diverse culture and heritage. A day of cranking up the barbie and feasting on lamb, meat pies, sausage rolls, lamingtons, and pavlovas whilst listening to a bit of Triple J’s Hottest 100 and partaking in a game of backyard cricket. For those like me who have no backyard, it is a case of watching it on the television.
If you are one of many hosting an Aussie day BBQ tomorrow and have left the dessert off the list, or just plainly forgotten about it, then these Tim Tam, Milo and Coconut balls are too easy to make.
We celebrated Aussie Day lunch last year at Blondie’s place and from memory it was one of those typical hot and humid days. I had volunteered to make dessert and wanted to make something with an Australiana theme, other than lamingtons and something that didnt need to be baked. IGA was selling Tim Tams for half the price so the ball idea began.
No cooking, no mess no fuss but yummy!
